Roland Systems Group in Bellingham, Wash., is now shipping the R-1000 ($TBA) 48-track recorder/player through its network of authorized resellers. The R-1000 is a stand-alone, dedicated recorder/player designed to work with the Roland V-Mixing System in any live event or production.

Users can set up and control the R-1000's parameters directly from any V-Mixer or through the PC/Mac control utility (R-1000 RCS). Additionally, the Roland S-MADI REAC MADI Bridge allows users to connect the R-1000 to any digital console that has MADI output capabilities.

The R-1000 can capture up to 48 channels of discrete audio as separate Broadcast WAV files. It can play back selected channels to augment a live performance or can serve as a multichannel playback deck in a theater or amusement park application. Users can sync two units together for 96 channels or sync to video with SMPTE (LTC) or via black burst.

All files are stored on the included 500 GB removable hard disk drive (HDD). Material can also be transferred via USB to a connected drive.

Virtual rehearsals are now possible when the R-1000 is integrated with a Roland V-Mixer Digital Console. Using a song previously recorded on the R- 1000, simply switch to playback mode and all the sources play back through the appropriate channels on the console. During playback, users can adjust the console's preamp gains and set compression, EQ, monitors and effects.

Setup and configuration is accomplished using the color LCD touch panel on the front panel or with the PC/Mac Remote Control software via a USB connection.

The R-1000 is based on REAC and uses Cat-5 or Cat-6 (Ethernet/LAN) cable instead of analog snakes.

The R-1000 captures the converted sound connected to the Roland Digital Snake Systems. Analog inputs and high-quality mic preamps are located close to the source, where audio is immediately converted to 24-bit digital streams and sent over Ethernet. Using REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication), the digital audio signal is transferred throughout the complete system path en route to the R-1000 hard drive and then back to any outputs and on to limitless split positions.
