audio recorder/player with all functions controls at your fingertips.
High quality solid-state audio recorder, the ARES-PII+ is principally designed for journalists. Its recording media is PCMCIA of Compact Flash cards (Capacity unlimited), for the recording of PCM Mono or Stereo audio. Optional MPEG compression allows for longer recording times. The unit is powered by 5 “AA” (LR6) batteries or rechargeable cells, offering in excess of 10 hours operation.
A 12 pin DIN connector serves as both the microphone and line inputs. The recorder will work with the NAGRA mono (NP-MICE # 70 19655 000) or stereo (NP-MICES # 70 19 656) electret microphones or with standard dynamic microphones. +48V powering is also provided allowing the use of any commercially available condenser microphones.
Really designed for radio applications, the ARES-PII+ offers instant start-up, one button recording, “takes” directory, large back-lit display, powerful vortex filter, automatic level control and internal loudspeaker. Optional internal software authorizations allow the machine to record MPEG compressed audio, to emulate a Digigram PCX sound card via USB and do internal audio editing in the field.
A large choice of accessories are available, such as power supply, carrying cases, cables etc to meet specific requirements.
The ARES-PII+ offers a USB port. Through this connection, the internal PCMCIA card appears on the “desktop” as n external drive of the PC / MAC. Naturally the card can be removed from the machine and directly inserted into the workstation if required. The FAT 16/32 file system has many advantages over the previous LFS system, meaning that individual takes can be removed at any time and MARKERS can be added to recordings during both record and playback.
The ARES-PII+ works with ATA PCMCIA cards, Strata Flash cards, compact flash cards and Microdrives (The last two require card adapters).
