Roland Systems Group announces a software update for its flagship 8-channel field recorder, the Roland R-88, which integrates a recorder, mixer and a multichannel audio interface. Version 1.10 software includes input delay function, support for polyphonic WAV, expanded low-cut filters, external MIDI controllers, sensitivity gain and headphone output boost functions, and expanded footswitch parameters.

The company states that it added these new features based on initial feedback from users worldwide, and that it will demonstrate V. 1.10 at InfoComm Booth #1458 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. The update will be available for download in the middle of June.

The new polyphonic WAV recording type enables the ability to save 2, 4, 6 or 8 channels in a single file. Additional features include support for external MIDI controllers via the UM-ONE mk2, which allows the ability to control the R-88 from external devices such as a fader unit. Further features include selectable input delay per channel to adjust the timing of each channel from 0.05 to 20 milliseconds, which is especially useful for surround recording with mics at various distances. Users can also now set the cut-off frequency per channel in the range of 60 to 250 Hz.

The Roland R-88 is designed for demanding multichannel applications such as location sound design, event production, event videography, and live musical performance.
