Roland's R-05 is easy to use and is packed with features including clear 24-bit/96 kHz capture, enhanced recording and editing features, and extended battery life (over 16 hours per charge).  On stage, in rehearsal, at school, on the street, in the boardroom — the R-05 captures the moment with convenience and quality.

24/96 Recording
The R-05 provides uncompressed stereo recording directly to SD card — up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution.  Whetherrecording directly with the built-in stereo mic or capturing sounds from an externally connected microphone or stereo line input, you'll like the R-05's detail and clarity.  And for worry-free recording, the convenient Rehearsal mode ensures that you won't overload the input.

Onboard Editing
Even though the R-05 integrates fluidly with computers via USB 2.0, this recorder doesn't require a PC for editing.  For speed and convenience, you can trim, divide, and combine within the R-05.  The R-05 also comes equipped with built-in reverb.

Rehearsal Mode
In a rehearsal studio, you can make clear recordings of your band, even at high volume levels.  The R-05 can automatically set the optimum recording level, and can split the songs for you automatically.  It's also possible to simultaneously record a high-quality WAV file for CD production and an MP3 file for file sharing.

Music-Practice Partner
The R-05 can help you practice your instrument or vocals.  You can repeatedly loop a specified region of audio, or change the playback speed without changing the pitch.  You can play back a difficult phrase slowly or play back at high speed to grasp the overall structure of a song in a short time.

For Non-Musicians Too
Musicians will naturally gravitate to the R-05, but this portable recorder is great for many non-musical applications as well.  Record lectures, speeches, and meetings, for example.  The high-sensitivity, built-in microphone will clearly capture all of the voices in a room.  The included windscreen and tripod mount enhance optimal placement and cleaner recordings as well.
