Stereo condenser microphones for lively, high-quality sound and high-resolution recording
The "DR-05" is equipped with omnidirectional stereo condenser microphones that can not only record sounds directly in front of the microphones but also record ambient sound from all directions. This is great for capturing the excitement from the audience such as at live events, producing realistic recordings. The recording format is compatible with 24bit/96kHz, which is higher than CD quality.

Proven high sound pressure design for capturing loud sounds of up to 125dB SPL, making it ideal for loud band recordings
Proven high sound pressure design that is perfect for loud recordings such as bands or passing trains. It can be used for recording quiet sound sources such as lectures or for loud sound sources such as rock bands.

Peak reduction function that detects peaks and automatically sets the optimal level
The peak reduction function automatically lowers the level when a peak sound is detected and continues recording. The level can be set automatically according to the sound source, so it is easy for anyone to set the optimal level. The "DR-05" has a total of three different input signal level adjustment functions including a peak reduction function. Peak reduction - when a peak is detected, the input signal level is automatically lowered and recording continues. It is perfect for music recordings that have variation in volume, which can be difficult to listen to. Auto level - The input signal level is automatically adjusted according to the input sound volume. It is good for when the volume fluctuates such as when recording meetings. Limiter - Prevents distortion of excessively high input signals.

Enhanced playback functions

Tempo change (VSA) function for adjusting the speed from 0.5 to 1.5 times (in 0.1 increments), which is great for practicing music and language study
Playback speed can be adjusted without affecting the pitch. This is helpful in various situations such as when arranging and practicing music, for slowing the speed of recorded conversations, and for speeding up playback of meetings.

* The VSA function is only available when playing back files recorded at 44.1kHz/48kHz.

Level align feature prevents uneven volume levels for enhanced listenability
When recording meetings or interviews, there are cases where it is difficult to listen to the playback because the volumes of different people vary. In such cases, the level align function automatically adjusts the sound volume for playback, making it easy to listen.

  • Equalizer setting for adjusting playback sound quality
  • Divide/delete functions make it easy to organize files after recording
  • Loop/repeat playback function that is convention for practicing music and studying languages
  • Self timer recording function that is helpful for recording your own musical performances
  • Three low cut filter levels that cut unnecessary low frequency noise such as from air conditioning equipment

    Nondestructive Overdubbing Function for Music Creation
    The overdubbing function allows for overdub recording while playing a recorded file. This can allow you to record other parts of a musical production such as a guitar solo over a recording made at a rehearsal studio later at home. Overdubbing creates a new file, leaving the original file unaffected, making it easy to rerecord.

    Reverb Effect for Vocal and Instrument Resonance
    Reverb can be added for music demo recordings and overdub recordings to add a more natural resonance. Reverb can also be used during playback, making it possible to express the 'live' feeling at a hall by adding reverb to created music.

    Auto recording function that can start recording automatically
    Records and pauses automatically. If the input signal level falls below the nominal level for more than 5 seconds during recording, it automatically switches to standby. If the input sound level rises above the nominal level again, recording restarts as a new file. This is useful when you do not want to record unnecessary portions such as lecture intermissions.

    Auto mark function that can put the mark automatically
    If the input signal level falls below the nominal level for more than 5 seconds during recording, it sets a mark when it rises above the nominal level again. This is useful when you want to search for a song position after a recording such as for live recordings. Marks can be used by BWF compatible software.

    Auto tone function Provides Easy-Adjustments for On-Site Movie Editing, ideal for DSLR filmmaking
    The internal slate tone generator produces various tones for easy track making and recognition. Please use dedicated accessary kit (AK-DR11C) for connecting. AK-DR11C DR-series Accessary Kit for DSLR connection
