Edirol releases R-09HR Version 2.0 operating system
Edirol has announced the release of the version 2.0 operating system for the R-09HR, the portable digital recorder.
This free, user-installable upgrade adds a suite of new music applications and on-board editing functions, making the R-09HR the all-in-one solution for musicians and recording enthusiasts.
With a new Self Time function, metronome, and two tuners, the R-09HR is now a completely self-contained music companion for practicing and rehearsing. The Self Time function allows for a time delay of up to 10 seconds before automatically recording. With the new metronome, musicians can practice their timing by listening to the click via the R-09HR’s built-in speaker, or record quick demos while silently monitoring the metronome in headphones.
The standard and graphic tuners utilize the professional quality condenser microphone of the R-09HR to accurately analyze any instrument’s pitch and tuning. The standard tuner is handy for checking the immediate tuning of an instrument, such as guitar or bass. The graphic tuner displays changes in pitch over time, making it an ideal tool for vocalists, brass, string, and woodwind players who need to test their pitch variation.
Version 2.0 also adds new on-board editing functions for instant manipulation of recorded audio files. The new Divide function breaks long recordings into separate files, such as lengthy interviews or musical performances. The new Combine function merges separate sound files into one single audio file, a convenient feature for posting podcasts easily to the web, or compiling recordings for band practice or music lessons.
