Roland has updated the Edirol R-09 WAVE/MP3 Recorder to be compatible with 8-GB SD High Capacity (SDHC) cards. With the update, the R-09 now also offers manual file splitting—activated by a single button push while the R-09 is in RECORD mode.
“We are always looking for ways to increase the functionality and capability of our products,” states EDIROL Product Manager, Michael Barrett. “This new update gives users the seamless file-splitting option they’ve been asking for.”
This new feature allows R-09 users to easily demarcate unique interview subjects and/or audio subjects without interrupting the recording.
Barrett explains, “For instance, if you are interviewing three people at the same time, each time a new interviewee starts talking, you hit the button to trigger a new file. This takes a lot of the aggravation out of post-production.”
For customers updating from v1.10 or before, the v1.30 added features are included in the v1.20 update.
