Pristine 24-Bit Recording to Go

Over the past year, EDIROL sold a staggering number of R-1 and R-4 recorders, making “Portable Recording” one of the most successful product categories in the company’s portfolio. Now comes a new addition to the red-hot lineup: the R-09. Building on the success of the R-1, the R-09 takes many of the most desired features — 24-bit uncompressed recording and a built-in stereo mic — and shrinks it all down into a more streamlined, stylish, and affordable package.

  • 24-bit/48kHz (or 44.1kHz) linear PCM recording
  • Ultra portable, half the size of the R-1
  • Up to 320 kbps MP3 recording
  • Records to SD card
  • Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit (I.A.R.C.)
  • Stereo condenser microphone built in
  • Mic and Line audio inputs
  • High speed file transfer via USB 2.0 connection to computer
  • Easy operation, user-friendly graphic display
  • Time & date stamp
  • Long battery life: (4 hour recording with AA alkaline type x 2)
  • Note: We have run real life tests with these 2500mAh Nickel Metal Hydride  rechargable batteries. Here are the results:


    Crystal-Clear Capture

    It’s ultra small and looks like a gadget, but make no mistake — the R-09 is a serious, top-quality professional recorder. Capture source material at a crystal-clean 24-bit resolution with your choice of 44.1 or 48kHz sample rates. You can record and play back in MP3 format as well (up to 320kbps). You can monitor through the R-09’s headphone jack and/or exported to a computer via USB.

    I.A.R.C. (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit)

    I.A.R.C. is the newly developed dedicated analog circuit optimized for recording on R-09. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power to the analog circuits, eliminating DC interference. The R-09 offers an input gain volume control to manually adjust recording levels.

    Microphone Included

    To record audio into the R-09, there’s no extra gear to buy or no cables to connect. A quality stereo microphone is built right into the unit, complete with a dedicated input control, mono/stereo selector, low-cut filter, and gain boost. Just point and record! If you wish to use an external microphone, the R-09 offers a 1/8" powered mic input.


    The R-09 is more affordable than its predecessor, the R-1. One reason the R-1 carries a heavier price tag is because of its well-stocked lineup of internal effects. The R-09 isn’t devoid of effects, however. It contains the world’s most-requested/desired effect: reverb. Whether you’re listening to WAV or MP3 files, you can route the R-09’s playback through its internal reverb processor, immersing it in lush, user-controllable ambience.

    More Than Music

    The R-09 is perfect for capturing live music events, recitals, and rehearsals. It’s also handy as a songwriter’s sketchpad, ensuring that no moment of inspiration is lost. But the R-09 has many valuable uses outside of the music world as well. Students can use it to record lectures. Broadcasters and journalists can throw away their antiquated cassette recorders and use the R-09 for in-the-field interviews. Wherever, whenever there’s a need to capture audio, the R-09 can do it hassle-free thanks to its built-in microphone and long battery operation.

    USB 2.0 Connection to Computer for Rapid File Transfer

    The R-09 can connect to the outside world via USB 2.0 for importing/exporting audio files via computer very quickly. For example, a 600 MB recording at 44.1 kHz/16-bit takes only 5 minutes to transfer, only 1/12 of the time it would take to transfer the same recording from a MiniDisc or tape (Cassette/DAT) recorder
