24-bit and 32-Bit Float
The PR-2 pocket recorder supports 24-bit and 32-bit float recording formats. The 32-bit float is an excellent feature that ensures that you won’t clip your audio, even if you record too hot. This feature is especially handy if you’re recording in a live setting where you don’t have the luxury of being able to monitor your levels constantly.
wirelessly sync timecode from the Deity TC-1
The Pocket Recorder can also wirelessly sync timecode from the Deity TC-1 timecode generator boxes, which is a great feature for easily adding timecode metadata to your WAV files. This will allow your audio to be synced up in post to your video footage more easily and quicker. Additionally, the PR-2 is remote-controlled via the Sidus Audio app, allowing every setting to be adjusted from up to 250ft away. This feature is especially useful if you need to change your recording setup from a long distance quickly.
The headphone output allows for live monitoring and checking the lavalier sound quality before recording, which is useful for ensuring that you capture high-quality audio. The device runs on 2 AA batteries for nearly 30hrs of battery life.
