imgBellingham, WA (October 18, 2011)—Roland Systems Group (RSG) has begun shipping the R-1000 48-track recorder/player through its network of authorized resellers.

The R-1000 is a standalone, dedicated recorder/player designed to work with the V-Mixing system. Setup and control parameters of the R-1000 can be done directly from any V-Mixer or through the PC/Mac control utility (R-1000 RCS). Additionally, users can connect and employ the R-1000 with any digital console that has MADI output capabilities by using the Roland S-MADI REAC MADI Bridge.

The unit can be used as a recorder for live events to capture up to 48 channels of discrete audio, all as separate broadcast wave files ready to open in a DAW of choice. As a playback device, it can be used in live events to play back selected channels to augment a live performance or as a multichannel playback deck in a theater or amusement park application.

Users can sync two units together for a 96-channel recorder/player or sync to video with SMPTE (LTC) or via black burst. All files are stored on the included 500GB removable hard-disk drive. Material can also be transferred via USB to a connected drive.
