Yes, you heard that right, a new studio recorder. In these days of DAWs, servers and handheld digital recorders, an honest-to-goodness rackmountable digital recorder for studio use is an unusual sight.
Korg’s MR-2000S is a multipurpose digital hard-disk recorder runs the range for 44.1 kHz/16-bit up to high-end 5.6 MHz “1-bit” recording. PCM files can be from 44.1 to 192 kHz. WAV, BWF, WSD, DSF and DSDIFF files are supported. Included conversion software allows for use of many other file formats. We find it online selling for between $1,800 and $2,000.
The onboard hard disk is 80 GB. A USB 2.0 port handles input and output to a computer or other storage.
The MR-2000S has XLR and RCA analog connectors. A S/PDIF connector is also available for digital duty.
