Roland R88 Multi Channel Digital Recorder
All in One Recorder, Mixer and Audio Interface - Anytime, Anywhere
The Roland R-88 establishes a new standard in professional portable recording by providing seamless integration of a recorder, mixer and a multi-channel audio interface. With eight discrete channels of audio recording plus a stereo mix, the R-88 is ideal for demanding multi-channel applications such as location sound design, event production, event videography, and live musical performance.
The Roland R-88 includes all the features required by location sound professionals including a full on-board mixer, various time code modes and slate tone/mic for memos. The stereo mix output on the R-88 is ideal for location sound recording applications enabling a stereo mix back to the camera to record reference audio or provides a stereo monitor output while simultaneously recording individual tracks. With 8 discrete outputs you can also embed the audio tracks into a SDI video feed by using a multi-channel SDI audio embedder. It also features professional AES/EBU digital I/O to digitally record from or send to a mixing console or other digital source.
Simultaneous recording of 8 channels + stereo mix (up to 96kHz)
Up to 24bit/192kHz uncompressed linear PCM recording (up to 4 channels)
3 hours of recording time using 32GB SDHC card (24bit/96kHz, 10ch)

Fostex FR2LE 24 bit recorder
Fostex has done it again with the FR-2LE - a compact audio recorder designed from the ground-up to meet the needs of professionals in the field. For a start, the FR-2LE records to CompactFlash in Broadcast WAV Format (BWF) at 24bit 96kHz quality. It’s equipped with two professional phantom powered XLR microphone inputs (XLR-phone combo) complete with precise control over the recording level.
It features a 1 take = 1 file recording system which eliminates overwrites and the 2 second ‘pre-record’ buffer means there should never be a missed take or lost soundbite. There’s even an MP3 mode and built-in stereo microphones designed for interviews.
- BWF (stereo) or MP3 recording onType II Compact Flash Card or Micro Drive
- Approx. 8-hour operation possible with Tamiya RC3600HV, Ni-MH battery.
- FAT32 file system. 16/24 bit, 44.1/48/88.4/96kHz
- USB 2.0 for high-speed file transfer to PC or MAC
- 1 take = 1 file system to eliminate overwriting
- Pre Rec buffer
- Built-in editing function
- Phantom power
- ALC (OFF/ALC/LIMITER)
- Wired remote controller supplied as standard
- Read After Write (RAW) monitoring
The FR-2LE Super MOD increases clarity and detail for enhanced performance in Nature and Ambient recording, FX or any application that requires high gain, low noise and distortion with maximum clarity and detail. Perfect for ENG applications that require improved vocal detail and clarity with a more natural tone. The Super MOD rebuilds the signal path up to the A/D chip with high slew rate, very low noise and low distortion FET op amps and HQ capacitors.
The FR-2LE HD MOD increases clarity and detail for enhanced performance in Concert recordings where a musical tone and 3D soundstaging are a must. The HD MOD rebuilds the signal path up to the A/D chip with high slew rate, low noise and ultralow distortion op amps and HQ capacitors.
The FR-2LE Basic MOD replaces the stock NJM 2122 preamp op amps with higher speed, lower noise and distortion FET op amps for enhanced performance for any application that requires high gain with low noise and distortion.
The new Marantz PMD 620MKII
The PMD 620MKII Basic rebuilds the PMD 620MKII mic preamp with a very low noise, high slew rate op amp that dramatically enhances detail and clarity while lowering noise and audible distortions. This upgrade also increases the mic input gain by 6dB in order to record lower signal levels without using the ALC circuit. All features remain intact.
The PMD 620MKII Concert rebuilds the PMD 620MKII mic preamp with a low noise, very low distortion and high slew rate op amp that dramatically enhances detail and clarity while lowering noise and audible distortions. This upgrade also improves the line input circuit. The built in mics are removed to maximize microphone input quality, all other features remain intact.
The PMD 620MKII Super
rebuilds the PMD 620MKII mic preamp with a very low noise, low distortion and high slew rate op amp that dramatically enhances detail and clarity while lowering noise and audible distortions. This upgrade also improves the line input circuit and increases the mic input gain by 6dB in order to record lower signal levels without using the ALC circuit. The built in mics and plug n power are removed to maximize microphone input quality, all other features remain intact.
Marantz PMD 661MKII
Sale on all 661MKII MODs, only 699.00 with ground shipping in the 48 states !
The Marantz PMD 661MKII Super MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using very high speed, very low noise and super low distortion op amps that dramatically improve low level detail and clarity. Super low THD+N op amps allow for a very wide SFDR even with signal levels down 50dB. This preserves the signal quality of the highest grade microphones when recording soft signals, like voice, un amplified music, nature sounds and FX. The Super MOD is the 661 upgrade of choice for filmmakers as it's audio qualities allow for more post production while maintaining the clarity and detail needed for optimal playback on typical audio systems used for video.
The Marantz PMD 661MKII FET MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using very high speed, very low noise and low distortion FET op amps that dramatically improve low level detail and clarity. Very low THD+N op amps allow for a very wide SFDR even with signal levels down 50dB. The warmth of the FET microphone preamp allows for a more natural vocal tone when using highly directional mics, like a shotgun mic. The very low noise is perfect when recording soft signals, like voice, un amplified music, nature sounds and FX. Our first choice for use with dynamic interview microphones. The FET upgrade also produces an impressive 3D stereo image, ideal for stereo nature recording !

The Marantz PMD 661MKII Concert MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using high speed, low noise and very low distortion op amps that dramatically improve fine detail and clarity. The result is a very detailed, open 3D soundstage. Components are selected by ear to optimize detail and imaging for recording all types of music where transparency is needed.
The Marantz PMD 661MKII Warm MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using high speed, low noise and very low distortion FET op amps that dramatically improve fine detail and clarity. the Warm MODs preamp chips use FETs so they sound very much like a tube preamp with the warm sound that offers a fat rounded bass tone, a sweet silky high end and the expansive soundstage found in high end tube circuits. Components are selected by ear to optimize detail and imaging for recording all types of music when a warm tone is needed.
