Products Features:

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
Compact Flash-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.
