Question about Edirol R-09 Digital Voice Recorder

2 Answers

R-09 broken, don't know where I can repair one fast in UK

I use a field recorder Edirol R-09 for nature, wildlife and music.
The recorder fell onto some tiles and some buttons fell off.

I need it urgently. When I enquired I was told by Edirol to send it Los Angeles and that the process would take a mighty four weeks.
I cannot afford the time. ...and I don't have the money to buy a replacement.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.


Thank you,

Igor

Hi Igor,

You have probably long since either had your Edirol repaired or found a replacement. If the latter situation is the case, and you have your R-09 sitting around collecting dust, I might be able to help. The buttons likely did not fall off, but were pushed back into the unit. Try opening it up by unscrewing it from the bottom (First open the battery cap) and carefully opening it up. You'll lkely find the buttons pushed back into it.

I learned this after a friend dropped mine at my wedding. Determined, I set out to fix it.

Good luck to you or anyone else reading this post,

Peter II

I know this is old, but..I just solved a "freeze" problem with mine. It was booting up, but none of the buttons seemed to do anything at all. Inserting the SD directly into my macbook pro SDSX slot.... if you don't have this, any USB SD reader will do, I erased all the data (and partitions) from the SD card. Using Disk Utility (again, Apple) and making sure it has the MS-dos compatible format. When I re-inserted into my Edirol device, I re-formatted the SD card, and all works perfectly now.This problem occurs if you don't format the card often enough, and then if you can't do it from the machine, try this solution. I think the data struggles to overwrite properly after a while and gets stuck, so format regularly folks!Hope this helps someone out there!N

Tape is playing back in fast forward only


Hello,

It is possible the tape loaded on the wrong side of the drive. If you romove the tape, look for slack and tighten up, try it again or another tape. Otherwise it is likely that a spring for the pressure roller is off or broken. This is not easially repairable.

How do I get rid of the shhhhh noise when I record people talking? I'm a digital storyteller and bought the R-09r after others recommended it to me, but the shhhh noise is just as bad as a cheap recorder...


You need a low pass filter over the microphone, use a piece of high density, well in fact experiment with all types of densities of "Foam" and place it in front of the Mic Hole and this will work well, Sometimes wool or fur, or anything that will absorb all the low frequency signals without reducing quality will work, thats why you see those "Socks" on the microphones in the movies. Another way, is to get a VOX switch, this start recording at the sound of your voice, and although fast will usually cut off the first syllable or so, or the first few Msecs of time when it starts this can be used to advantage in this case.
Conversely, some VOX's that are built in, can cause a noise at beginning of recording.. Sometimes the noise is the Motor noise, and it's picked up as a low frequency noise, this can happen in cheaper units, an earth a bit loose, bad connections, to name a few.

Edirol R-09 Recorder Controls Frozen


This is a PARTIAL solution...

I've found that if I partially remove the SD-Card, then push the power button, it then starts and continues (without freezing) to show the meters and shows "no-card", then I push the SD-Card fully and it then shows "Loading"...

From there, it can be operated. But if I try to power-up with the SD-Card installed, it freezes and ceases to obey any buttons; which requires to remove the batteries to turn it off.

Please be aware that removing OR installing the SD-Card with power-on is NOT recommended, BUT is THE ONLY way my R-09HR now can be operated. I'm contacting the factory to solve this, but in the mean time, I had to record a live concert that I had promised to get recorded, so I tryed everithing and discovered the reinstallation of the SD-Card as the only thing that allowed me to get that concert.

The SD-Card that I bought for my R09HR is a Kingston 16GB. good luck, give it a try.
Sincerely, amclaussen at amarquez@imp.mx

SD card full in spite of all files deleted - what do do?


OK, so if you want to delete the photos off your s.d. card, Simply open the 'terminal' application located in the utilities folder.
Then enter this into the box:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

That will then make the .Trashes folder of the sd card show up!
Open it, go through the '501' folder, and there you go! Delete everything!

This happens because the card has it's own hidden trash.

Oh, and if you want to hide all the hidden files and folders again, simply open terminal, and enter THIS text:


defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
killall Finder

Cheers,

Tristan

Formatting SD card


I had this problem too. Some SD cards won't properly format. My trick was I formatted the card in a different device first (canon Powershot A-630) then put the card in the R-09 and formatted it again. it took about 8 seconds for a 2 gig SD card to format.
