quality four channels recordings to large capacity SDHC cards.
The R-44 is designed for professional use within a very
conveniently sized package. Capture up to 4 channels of uncompressed
audio with selectable bit depths (16-bit or 24-bit) and sampling
frequencies(44.1kHz/48kHz/88.2kHz/96kHz). R-44 employs SD cards or large
capacity SDHC cards as the recording media. No moving parts enables the
most silent and reliable operation possible.
stereo microphones and monitor speakers

Built-in high quality microphones and speakers make recording and
monitoring without external devices possible.
EQ: 3-band parametric EQ ; allows precise equalization with
high/low shelving and peaking
Graphic EQ: 6 point frequency band equalization; ideal for
Gate: Minimizes noise during low audio levels, cuts low
Enhancer: Cleary defines and enhances sound; good for
DeEsser: Cuts hissing, smoothens the sound, makes audio
Mixing: Generates stereo mix with specified spread from
inputs of Mid-Side Microphones
* Effects can be
applied on both input and output
* Effects are not available while sample rate is set to 192kHz
Built-in limiter, low-cut filter and studio class effects
An on-board limiter helps suppress sudden peaks in sound from an input
source. A low-cut filter is included to help prevent things like wind
noise or mic handling noise. Studio class effects such as 3-Band EQ,
6-Band GEQ, Enhancer or DeEsser can be used as tools to greatly improve
audio quality. Effects can be applied while recording or simply for
function ensures you never miss that important moment again
The Pre-Record function buffers input signals for a user-definable
amount of time. When the REC button is pressed, the material from the
previous few seconds (selectable) is included. This also helps reduce
sound bites at the beginning of a recording by not having to start the
recorder too early.
analog jacks and digital output enables connection with a variety of
The combo input jacks (4) supports the connection of both XLR and 1/4
inch plugs. XLR inputs are equipped with phantom power. Eleven steps of
input sensitivity enable the connection of various devices with a
variety of inputs levels from microphones to musical instruments. High
quality analog circuitry in the preamp ensures superior recording
High-contrast Organic LED display and operation-oriented user
The high contrast, high response organic LED screen, viewable
from wide angles ensures fluid operation in field recording situations.
The high response of level meters makes precise level adjustments
possible. All the necessary switches and knobs are located on the top
and front panels. Self-lit buttons on all the key controls enable
clear-cut recording operations.
eight channels by linking two units
The Control Sync terminal enables synchronized operation of 2 units.
Control the second unit from the master by simply connecting two with a
stereo mini cable. The master unit can remotely control REC standby, REC
start and REC stop of the slave unit. This function enables 8-channel
recording in a compact space and at an affordable price.
computer via high speed USB
The R-44 storage can be mounted on computers with a simple USB 2.0
connection. It is seen as an USB storage device on any computer. You can
copy data back and forth with a simple drag & drop operation.
hours of recording with four AA batteries
The R-44 can be operated with 3 types of power: AC adapter and AA
batteries. Four hours* of operation is possible with NiMH or alkaline
* at 16-bit/44.1kHz stereo. No phantom power and pre-record disabled.
