R-26: 6-Channel Portable Recorder

Discover True Multi-Dimensional Sound

Hand-held field recorders have been hot commodities for musicians, recording engineers, and sound designers for years. Today, the mercury rises in this dynamic market with the debut of the game-changing R-26. This innovative recorder is portable yet loaded with first-class, professional features, the likes of which the industry has not seen before. There are two types of stereo microphones built into the R-26, plus a pair of XLR/TRS combo inputs for external mics, and an input for a stereo plug-in powered mic. Choose simultaneous combinations of the built-in mics (directional and omnidirectional), as well as the external inputs. Capture live performances with simultaneous line and ambient signal paths, record important speeches, lectures, and presentations, or take the R-26 into the inner city or deep forest for pristine field capture. The sky’s the limit with this powerful, portable, and incredibly flexible recorder.

  • Two types of built-in stereo microphones (omnidirectional and directional) that can be used in various combinations
  • Two XLR/TRS combo inputs with 48 V phantom power, plus an input for a stereo plug-in powered mic
  • Supports up to six channels (three stereo channels) of simultaneous recording
  • Large LCD touchscreen display for intuitive navigation
  • Large input-level knobs for fine adjustment
  • Built-in Hi-Speed USB interface for use as an audio interface or external storage
  • Loop-Back function; combine this with the built-in or external mics for the optimum live video streaming setup (only with Audio Interface function)
  • Bundled with SONAR LE software (PC)

New-Tech Advantage

The R-26 features Roland’s latest DSP engine, which allows simultaneous recording of up to six channels (three stereo channels). A large LCD touchscreen display lets you directly navigate menus for customizing the microphone settings, editing waveforms, and so on. It also features large input-level knobs for making precise adjustments.

Built-In Stereo Mics

Directional and omnidirectional stereo microphones are built into the R-26, and can be used simultaneously. This unique multi-stereo mic recording system lets you capture a wide stereo sound field without spoiling the vibrant low frequencies and ambience of the venue.

External Inputs

Two XLR/TRS combo mic inputs are built into the R-26, plus an input for a stereo plug-in powered mic, which can be combined simultaneously with the internal mics. At a live concert, for example, the R-26 can capture a stereo mix from the FOH mixer via its XLR inputs, as well as the ambient audience noise via its built-in stereo mics.

Six-Channel Simultaneous Recording

The R-26 allows up to six channels of simultaneous recording (three stereo pairs). Capture the same sound source with three different types of microphones, both internal and external. This provides a new level of flexibility after the fact, as you can choose from the individual tracks or composite mixes.

USB Connectivity

You can connect the R-26 to your computer for use as an audio interface or for external storage. Use the R-26 in combination with the bundled SONAR LE software app to perform recording and detailed editing on your PC.

Paul at Keysound provided excellent, friendly, professional, patient help, support and service and did not try to hard sell anything.
He gave great advice and showed us how different pianos sounded by playing different genres of music on different pianos with different budget ranges.
We are absolutely thrilled with the piano we purchased and it was delivered to us within a week of us purchasing it and it was installed perfectly by the delivery team

I have been with Keysound many years and since day one they have not only been a great company but they offer a ongoing support to their customers second to none.The staff Steve and Paul and the late Nigel who is greatly missed are always there for you and have always continued to be both progressive and supportive and with their latest venture during Keysound TV something no one should miss.

I bought my electronic piano here some time ago. The owner was exceptionally nice and welcoming. He helped me to transport the piano to my apartment. I am a Chinese student and my English is not very good, but the owner was especially patient in communicating with me.
