    Roland R-05Published on 06/15/12 at 13:41
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I use since April 2011!
    Tried other, no! This is my first!
    What I like is enresitré music in Wav or Mp3: 10/10.
    Great quality!
    Price: 199 Euro for the Roland R-05.
    I do again my choice for Roland, Yamaha or Alesis!
    I do not know with! this is to put it on the PC with USB cable?? to give them as Wav or Mp3??

    Thank you to Roland & Audiofanzine!

    Not bad at all

    Bought € 188 (with bag and 4GB SD card).
    Comes with instructions in English (paper) and French (pdf format) + 2 GB SD card (card very slow, quick to replace) + windscreen foam. These foam windscreens are quite ineffective in whatever is recording outdoors, better a long-haired wig ($ 35 at redheadwindscreens.com).
    Optional transformer (Roland PSB6U, € 32)

    Use
    In my case: records outdoors (nature, moods, events ...) and inside, or use dictaphone recording musicians.

    After some research (pubs, forums, tests, users notice), Roland R05 it seemed like a good choice:
    - Price
    - Background noise moderate, depending on test www.b4net.dk/ convincing enough? Page_id = 111 and also www.…

    After some research (pubs, forums, tests, users notice), Roland R05 it seemed like a good choice:
    - Price
    - Background noise moderate, depending on test www.b4net.dk/ convincing enough? Page_id = 111 and also www.taperssection.com/index.php?topic=140726.0
    - Build quality Roland (Roland I have a few machines, some of which may have twenty years and never had any problems. Roland, it's tough).
    - Connect external microphones (via mini jack)

    Its quality
    Much better than I would have thought. With the built-in microphones, the sound is clear, very correct (no glaring lack bass, mid, treble), convincing enough in many types of uses. In short, given the price and given the size of micro pokey, I find the sound quality of this little R05 really bluffing.

    Background noise, wind
    This is where the bone. To get an idea of ​​the background noise generated by R05, I had fun recording ... of Silence (soundproof room, absolutely silent. R05 Settings: Mic Gain: H / Limiter: ON / Input level: 68).
    Result: In these conditions, the R05 does not record the sound of course it generates itself and yes, it generates a sound / audible breath. But not monstrous enough to be annoying as this in any recording of weak or distant source: birdsong in the distance, quiet atmosphere, insect noises (good fun lol) ...
    Of course, this breath can be easily removed with a plugin / tool dedicated and it is audible only when recording but weak sources, so yes, the Roland R05 generates a significant background noise. It is perhaps better than other recorders of this type and in this price range but in any case, it is not super quiet.

    Exellent product, brand loyal

    since its acquisition
    Usage almost daily

    not

    most; autonomy (one of the best recording of his generation), ultra compact appearance, the recording quality, possibility of simultaneous recording to wav and mp3, highly reactive,
    the least, no multitrack, no access to menu / finder while recording
    edition ungenerous, microphones nonorientable

    in short an excellent product, very well made, quality and resolution more than respectable (frequency echant. up to 96kHz)
    A recorder that I recommend as many
    unbeatable value for money, I would definitely do it again this choice
    less than 200euros, go for it!

    That's it, I invested. And finally, I am persuaded by the last model left the house ROLAND. R-05. After testing qques is really extra.
    The sound quality is at the appointment.
    It is very simple to use (no need to put the nose in the manual), it is almost second to record in qques. It is very small, very discreet, and obviously very efficient batteries.
    The flats after qques qques days of use are:
    the absence of a tuner,
    the absence of a mini speaker ht
    and inability to navigate in the explorer when reading a file.
    On the other hand, it is not possible, as suggested by ZOOM, change the angle of the mic, but hey, is it really useful to use I'm going to do??
