'What's Hot' from Doctor Audio - Firmware Update For R-09 Stereo Field Recorder
(Since I have one of these, I thought others who have it, or are thinking of it might be interested....) Roland has announced a new firmware update (v1.10) for the award-winning Edirol R-09 WAV/MP3 recorder, making the R-09 the world's first SDHC (SD High Capacity) compatible stereo field recorder on the market.
Responding to demands in the marketplace, the Edirol has recently updated the R-09 to support the new SDHC standard for SD memory cards. Previously, the R-09 was limited to a maximum SD card capacity of 2 gigabytes using standard SD memory cards. As of November 17, 2006 the R-09 is now fully compatible with SDHC memory cards that offer sizes over the 2 GB limit and increased data transfer speeds. Tested and approved, the new Panasonic RP-SDR04-GJ1K 4GB media is fully compatible with the R-09.
As more SDHC-compliant memory cards become available to the market, the R-09 will be able to use and access the higher capacity memory that these SDHC memory cards offer. Of course, standard SD cards remain compatible with the R-09 according to the SDHC specifications. (Click here for more information on the new SDHC v.2 specifications.)
Other enhancements in the v1.10 firmware update include superior data transfer speeds across the USB 2.0 connections, a longer power switch cut-off-time, cycling of the alphanumeric characters when naming files or folders, and improvements to the internal time-stamping feature when using the MOVE and COPY operations respectively.
For customers updating from v1.02 firmware, the v1.03 added features are included in the v1.10 update. ( v 1.03 enhancements include updated support for a wider range of SD memory cards, and improvements to guarantee stability in high temperature environments.)R-09 System Program Update Requirements The following items are required to update the R-09 system program:
- R-09 WAV/MP3 Recorder
- R-09 USB cable (supplied with the unit)
- Supported SD memory card. Roland recommends using the SD memory card supplied with the R-09 - Note: The memory card must be formatted on the R-09 and have at least 2MB free
For more information regarding system update procedures, please read the R-09_Ver.1.10_Update.txt file that is included with the firmware update.
