Description

FR-2LE CF Field Recorder

With a location recording pedigree which includes the original portable timecode DAT machines (PD-2, PD-4), and more recently the innovative PD-6 DVD-RAM recorder, it was only natural that Fostex should develop the FR-2, the acclaimed professional CompactFlash-based field recorder.

And now, it seems, Fostex have done it again with the launch of the new FR-2LE – a compact audio recorder designed from the ground-up to meet the needs of professionals in the field. For a start, the FR-2LE records to CompactFlash in Broadcast WAV Format (BWF) at 24bit 96kHz quality. It’s equipped with two professional phantom powered XLR microphone inputs (XLR-phone combo) complete with precise control over the recording level.

It features a 1 take = 1 file recording system which eliminates overwrites and the 2 second ‘pre-record’ buffer means there should never be a missed take or lost soundbite. There’s even an MP3 mode and built-in stereo microphones designed for interviews.

Feature rich and elegant in operation, the pedigree of the new FR-2LE looks assured.

 

Long battery life
The FR-2LE can run up to 8 hours on standard off-the-shelf NiMH batteries

Extended recording times
Over 12 hours @ 16bit 44.1kHz recording on an 8GB CompactFlash card

Professional inputs

Dual XLR inputs (XLR-phone combo) with top quality microphone pre-amps, trim control and phantom power. Analog out is offered on RCA connectors

BWF or MP3 recording
Record up to 24bit 96kHz audio

Tough construction
Manufactured from high-grade materials and specifically designed for professional location recording

Fail Safe Recording
In addition to a 1 take = 1 file system to eliminate overwrites, the FR-2LE also features Auto File Closing which closes files at one minute intervals, thus preserving the data in the event of a power failure.

USB 2.0
The USB 2.0 port allows direct connection to PC and MAC for easy file transfer.
