Description

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 has done it again with the 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. A 1 take = 1 file recording system eliminates overwrites and 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 is assured.

Recording on Type II CompactFlash™ card
