Es una grabadora muy buena y fácil de cargar en todo momento. Tengo varios modelos de grabadoras ZOOM pero a la hora se sacarlas para entrevistas rápidas o grabaciones de campo, la ZOOM tarda mucho tiempo en encender y la oportunidad de grabar se pierde.
Esta grabadora de Roland es pequeña (mide un poco más de la mitad de un iPhone SE), la puedes tener en tu bolsillo y utilizarla rápidamente cuando sea necesario. Solo puedes conectar un micrófono externo (3.5mm), no hay entradas XLR como en otras marcas. Los micrófonos binaurales 3.5mm de Roland funcionan muy bien con este modelo.
As a long time user of the Roland R-05 I was excited for the R-07 as it appeared to be a better version with more features. Having used the R-07 for a number of days now and tinkering with settings and a couple of different MicroSD cards I am ready to share some of my thoughts. If you have an R-05 then you probably don't need this unit unless you want something lighter that allows the use of a remote and a much more obvious standby and recording light display. That said, there are some negatives with this new unit that you should be made aware of. The feature I was most looking forward to was USB bus power. No more batteries while recording at home was very promising. But it wasn't to be. Every single time I plugged the cable(s) in to run the R-07 on bus power it also recorded a terrible clicking sound. This does not happen when using batteries to power the device. Yes, using bus power means that your recordings will be useless. Also, despite changing different settings, I could never seem to get transfer speeds from the R-07 to my computer to speed up to those I get with my R-05. The difference? The R-7 would transfer files at around 700kb/s while the R-05 transfers files at 2MB/s. In layman's terms, that means that files transfer to my computer more than twice as fast with the R-05. How does this new recorder get two stars instead of five? By feeling like a step back in some ways that it shouldn't. Perhaps if they release an update to fix these issues it might be worth picking up, but until then I would say it either wasn't ready for release, not properly tested, or it is a bit of a dud. I contacted Roland hoping to find some solutions or at least get some answers or provide feedback but they never answered my calls or called me back. I may just have to return this.
Edited to add: I heard back from Roland support and they admitted that transfer speed from the R-07 to a computer is slower than with the R-05. They add that transfer speeds to the R-07 are faster. Why I would care about that? This is a recorder. The support isn't there for this product. I can not recommend it for any reason.
Roland, the recordings are crystal clear. The two AA Ni-MH batteries I can recharge last up to 15 hours. Remarkable! This is an awesome device.
Works perfectly with my Apple iPhone SE with the App. I can control the unit at a gig with my phone 30' away and place the unit on a camera tripod because of the mount screw hole on the device. Nice. Placing the recorder and tripod where necessary for the best sound is possible with this device.
Big mistake with transfer file speeds. Why the heck did Roland make the USB slow down to what seems USB 1.0 speeds? I can tell it's not even USB 2.0 speeds. I have a USB 3.0 capable mac. If I want the files quickly, I would have to eject the tiny micro-SDHC card, put it into a Micro SD adapter, and then put that into my mac and get the true speed of the memory card. Or I would have to buy an MicroSDHC hub and connect that hub to the mac. In fact, that would be easier than mounting that tiny card into the larger Micro SD adapter and inserting that adapter into my Mac. But both are a hassle. My mac has a built-in SD memory card slot. The easiest method is indeed using a USB cable, but again, expect nearly USB 1.0 speeds.
What bean counter over at Roland thought this would be a good idea? It took 1 full hour to transfer 1GB of recordings to my Mac. If you have time to park the recorder and dump it, it's fine. If you're under pressure, don't bet on the transfer speed. Roland, that decision was ridiculous. You almost approached perfection. I suspect an accountant wanted to cut some kind of cost and save $2.00 of expense for a more expensive USB chip. That's my hunch.
Or, maybe the chips for USB 2.0 and above would make the remarkable 15 hour battery life a pipe dream due to higher current drain, even when idle. I don't know. Maybe it was the engineers who suggested this to get more battery life?
Improvements I would gladly pay extra for:
-Make it USB 3.0, or USB 2.0 at the least. Even 10 hours battery life is remarkable for a device like this. -Make a metal case but still lightweight and small. -Keep the door to the battery simple like it is, no complicated door-latch with moving parts like your Edirol R-09 which I bought a long time ago. Complicated mechanical doors to get to the batteries and memory card will break and make the otherwise pristine electronics unusable.
You almost had a home-run and you turned it into a run to second-base. Why?
All that said, I am going to keep it. I can let it park on my mac to transfer audio as I do other things. If I were doing this for work, under pressure, like a journalist, I might skip this device. But I bought this for music mostly. I like the control of it from iPhone. My guess is the next iteration of this device will be the homerun. Cheers.
I bought this to connect to my Roland DJ808 DJ controller . I figured Roland recorder and Roland controller should work fine together. I was wrong. After reading the instuctions and fully understanding the unit, I decided to record what I was watching on TV with the Microphones. I tried to play the recording with the onboard speaker and could not hear it. Turned the volume up to 100% and the sound coming out of it was about the level of a pindrop. I had to press my ear against the speaker to hear it. Connected headphones and the headphone volume was fine. I then connected the aux input to the master output of my Roland DJ808 mixer. The output levels from my Roland controller were no where near peaking. But the Recorder peak light stayed on constant. I tried to use the input level to adjust it, but it would show peaking even with the recorder input level set to 1. I had to turn my Controller levels down so low that it would be too low of a volume to play at an event. I could not adjust the input level. This unit is made for voice and ambient recordings. Not music connected to the Aux input.
I'm not sure what issues the first reviewer ran into. I've had no issues. Bluetooth was great for mobile recording. The Roland CS-10em binuraul mics work well. The onboard mics are clean. Make sure you use mic placement to your advantage. The scenes are useful for quick setup. The size is amazing for remote recording where you don't want to make a scene. Roland has a solid product on their hands.
-- Edit January 2018: I've been using this recorder for live music and binaural recording with the Rolnd cs-10em. The line in no longer functions. For binuaral recording I'm moving on to the Tascam DR-05. The built-in mics still work, but my faith in the device is down.
First off, I record music festivals and other music events that last 5+ hours regularly. I have been using Roland and Edirol recorders for over a decade and they have been great. I have been waiting very patiently for a company to come out with a wireless control option that actually works. When I saw this one, I thought that it looked perfect on paper. Having the option of dropping markers, splitting files, and checking levels from a remote location at a festival are priceless features for me!
So much so that I talked a friend into also buying one that I do event recording with. I found out last min that this one DOES NOT come with a powersupply and its USB (first red flag for me)
I talk to my friend and he received his before me and told me that during a trip to Europe he tried it out but there were some weird things going on. He said that when using the "line in" from a mixer or other source even at a very low input level the unit ALWAYS lights up like its clipping even when the level meters are not. I asked if he had updated the firmware and he had. I assumed the clipping had to be a setting or something he missed. My recorder showed up, and I ordered two usb power supplies here on Amazon, one for me and one for my friend that was overseas and would be back for our big show in the US. (We have to plug into a regular power source without adapters to reduce the chance of failure)
I immediately updated the firmware on my recorder before doing anything else. I set it up and downloaded the app, and tested the Bluetooth remote at home to make sure it worked and was not dropping connection like some others had posted about here. It all seemed to work fine. I did have to go into the Bluetooth settings and change the "channel" so it would connect, but after that it was fine. I even checked it going out of BT range and coming back to into range while recording and it seemed fine.
Long story long... I got to the festival and the Bluetooth didn't work reliably. I had a person working with me on an iphone connect and it seemed a bit better, but still not good enough. (I use an android google pixel 2) My recorder also lit up like it was clipping ALL THE TIME. I could not find out what was causing this.
So in a nut shell, this recorder needs a serious firmware update to address these issues. I just ended up using it like my trusty r05. The recording came out fine and was not clipping even though the thing was lighting up like a Christmas tree all weekend while recording.
After the show I returned it. My friend kept his, so hopefully these issues will be addressed. SOON I really wish SOMEBODY would get this right. All the features I want are there, they just don't work correctly. *sadface*
