High Quality Audio

Audio quality is of primary importance with the Roland AR-3000SD. The recorder can perform at up to 24-bit quality, which offers increased headroom and a generally more accurate definition. The 96kHz playback quality provides large audiences with a detailed sound, no matter how loud the speakers are. The audio can be saved as both WAV and MP3 files, offering choice of preference to each user. The audio can be saved to an SD card, or to a USB flash drive as a backup.

Extensive Editing Features

The AR-3000SD offers a range of editing features to optimise your sound. The truncate feature is useful for trimming down the unnecessary silences before and after the required audio. The Phrase Combine joins multiple expressions together for a seamless audio playback. The AR software can be downloaded directly to your computer for simple edits and file conversions. The AR-3000SD’s digital screen and on board controls make audio editing simple and reliable.

Full Range of Inputs and Outputs

Roland have equipped the AR-3000SD with a host of inputs and outputs for easy accessibility. The LAN connection is an efficient way to synchronise the device to multiple computers, which is ideal for sound engineers. The line-thru feature allows you to blend two audio devices together, such as background music or announcements. All the AR-3000SD’s ports are easily accessible and neatly organised for the ease of use.
