4-channel workflow

Professional quality four channel recording to large capacity SDHC cards

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) to common and inexpensive SD and SDHC memory cards.

Built-in stereo microphones and monitor speakers

Record directly to the R44 without external microphones and monitor recordings with the built-in speaker or through the headphone jack.

Pre-Record 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 conference recording system too early.

Combo type analog jacks and digital output enables connection with a variety of devices

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 results.

Link to computer via high-speed USB

The R-44 storage can be mounted on computers with a simple USB 2.0 connection.

High-contrast Organic LED display and operation-oriented user interface

Roland R44 LED displays

Four hours of recording with four AA batteries

The R-44 can be operated with 3 types of power: AC adaptor, 4-pin external battery and AA batteries. Four hours* of operation is possible with NiMH or alkaline batteries. [* at 16-bit/44.1kHz stereo. No phantom power and pre-record disabled.]

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 monitoring/playback.

  • 3-band EQ: 3-band parametric EQ ; allows precise equalization with high/low shelving and peaking
  • 6-band EQ: 6 point frequency band equalization; ideal for recording
  • Noise Gate: Minimizes noise during low audio levels, cuts low frequency noise
  • Enhancer: Cleary defines and enhances sound; good for dialogue
  • Comp & DeEsser: Cuts hissing, smoothens the sound, makes audio level uniform
  • MS Mic Mixing: Generates stereo mix with specified spread from inputs of Mid-Side Microphones

Unsolicited Testimonial

"I just purchased the 4-Channel Universal Transcription System from Start-Stop. I can truly say it was one of, if not the, most pleasant internet buying experiences I've ever had. Not only did Joe, the engineer, tell me about the software, he also went the extra mile in installing it and teaching me all the features and how to use them. He then set it up to my specifications. Altogether he spent about 2+ hours on the phone with me making sure I was completely satisfied before even asking for my credit card information.

"In addition to that, I called him regarding a problem I was having with an R-44 recorder that I bought under a different name from a different company. He never hesitated to answer my questions and to make sure that I had everything set up correctly, something that the manual is not really good at.

"I just wish that I had known that Start-Stop sells the exact same machine under a different name. I would have bought from them to begin with.

"All in all, I'd give the software and the customer service an A+++ rating. If you're thinking of buying from Mart*l, please consider Start-Stop. You will be glad you did!" - Alice Moore, GA
