  • Excerpt: I use this recorder for production sound on short narrative films. I upgraded from a handheld 2-channel recorder (Marantz PMD-661). The preamps are quiet enough for location work. Though no match for Sound Devices, you don't hear any noise until boosting to +44dB or higher.

  • Excerpt: Granted, 4 channels is a factor that almost deterred me, but realistically, it's great for 99% of my needs. The preamps are very clean and the functionality is clear, simple, but sophisticated where you want it to be. I don't love the shape or the placement of the buttons (esp.

  • Excerpt: This is my first sound recorder, so I can't give any comparison to other devices, but I can say this: the R-44 is very easy to use, and it sounds great. I am using it on an indie film, and it has a joy to work with every step of the way.
