Newly Developed Crossed XY Stereo Microphone

The PR7's large onboard XY stereo mics are aligned with the left and right mics on the same axis. Using this configuration, both mics are always equidistant from a sound source, providing perfect localization with no phase shifting. Additionally, the well designed microphone covers enhance the performance of the diaphragm resulting in superb stereo recordings with natural depth and precise stereo imaging.

24-bit/96kHz Recording

Linear PCM recording at 24-bit/96kHz far exceeds CD sound quality, allowing users to faithfully capture the atmospheric reverberations and most subtle nuances of a performance. The PR7 can also record in various formats allowing for more lengthy recordings.

Mic / Line Input

External mic and line inputs can accommodate a variety of external input sources such as condenser microphones or keyboards.

Rec Presets

The PR7 features five recording presets with optimized HPF and dynamics control settings tailored to the varying requirements of different recording environments. The OFF setting is ideal for capturing musical performances, NEAR is suitable for personal instrument practice, BAND is best suited for multi-instrumental performances, FIELD is best for outdoor recordings and SPEECH is for meetings, seminars or other speaking engagements.

HPF and Dynamics Control

PR7's HPF settings allow you to minimize the popping noise caused by wind pressure from vocals or outdoor recordings, while dynamics control lets you adjust input levels to avoid distortion.

Easy Overdubbing

The PR7 comes equipped with a dedicated overdubbing button that allows you to instantly add solo sections, harmonies, or narration to an existing file. You can even punch in and punch out at specific parts of an audio file to ensure that only the parts you need, such as a chorus or a solo, are committed to the file.

Marker Editing during Recording and Playback

Marker editing is a useful function that allows users to insert up to 36 markers in audio files either during recording or playback, providing easy location of a playback position. Markers can also be used to loop a specific section of a file to aid users in practicing or learning a specific phrase or part of the song.

Tuner and Metronome

The PR7 features onboard Tuner and Metronome functions that are useful for everyday practice

Adjustable Playback Speed

PR7 allows you to adjust playback speed from 50% up to 200% while maintaining consistent pitch throughout. Slower playback can help musicians master more challenging phrases while faster playback allows users to quickly scan through lengthy recordings.
