Overview

Roland R-26, a 6-channel handheld portable recorder.

R-26 – 6-Channel Multi-Dimensional Recording

Handheld audio recorders are the perfect solution for musicians, recording engineers and sound engineers who want to record on-the-go and with the R-26, Roland have taking the portable audio recorder to another level.

New DSP Technology, Built-In Stereo Microphones

Taking advantage of Roland’s newest DSP engine, the R-26 can record six channels (three stereo channels) simultaneously.

Utilising both directional and omnidirectional stereo microphones that are built into the R-26, with the ability to record with both types simultaneously you get great recording.

You can capture the same sound source with three different microphones, both internal and external, giving you multiple recordings to work with afterwards, allowing you to choose your favourite from individual tracks or a composite mix.

With this unique multi-stereo microphone setup, you can capture an amazingly wide stereo soundfield for an immersive, multi-dimensional recording.

External Inputs and USB Connectivity for Direct Recording

The Roland R-26 features two built-in XLR/TRS combo mic inputs along with an input for a stereo plug-in powered microphone which you can use simultaneously with the internal microphones.

A great example of how this can be used to take full advantage of live sound is to capture a stereo mix directly from the venue’s mixer via the XLR inputs while recording ambient sound and audience reaction with the built-in stereo mics ensuring top quality live recordings that retain that raw feel.

You’ll also find that the Roland R-26 can be connected to your computer via USB making it an extremely convenient audio interface and it’s great for external storage.

Easy-To-Use, Convenient Portable Audio Recorder

A large LCD touchscreen allows you to easily navigate the comprehensive yet intuitive menus where you can adjust the microphone settings, edit waveforms and more to get the exact sound you require.

Large input-level knobs also allow for tactile adjustments with precise results.

A great portable recorder for recording live bands or for use in the rehearsal rooms and studios. Extremely convenient yet non-compromising, the Roland R-26 is an awesome handheld recorder.
