Bellingham, WA (May 12, 2011)–Roland Systems Groups has debuted its R-1000, a standalone, dedicated recorder/player designed to work with the V-Mixing System in a live event or production.
According to the company, users can connect and use the R-1000 with any digital console that has MADI output capabilities, by pairing it with the Roland S-MADI REAC MADI Bridge, or as a recorder for live events to capture up to 48 channels of discrete audio all as separate broadcast wave files, ready to open in a DAW of choice.
As a playback device, it can be used in live events to play back selected channels to augment a live performance or as a multichannel playback deck in a theater or amusement park application. Users can sync two units together for a 96-channel recorder/player or sync to video with SMPTE (LTC) or via black burst. All files are stored on a removable hard-disk drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD). Material can also be transferred via USB to a connected drive.
Setup and configuration can be done using the color LCD touch panel on the front panel or with the PC remote-control software via a USB connection. The R-1000 is based on REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication), making use of Cat-5e/6 (Ethernet/LAN) cable.
