Legendary MR Series Audio Fidelity
The MR-2000S-BK combines Korg's legendary MR Series' unprecedented audio quality with the features that the modern studio demands, creating the ideal mastering and mixdown recorder. The single-rackspace design and ample on-board hard drive delivers a compact way to capture and carry away the sound you were hearing in the mixing environment. The rich black studio finish, backlit LCD, and bright LED level meters provide excellent visibility and response speed, ensuring accurate monitoring. The MR-2000S-BK fulfills the professional ideal of a truly future-proof studio master recorder.
Capturing the Complete Performance
As with all of Korg's MR Series recorders, the MR-2000S-BK supports the 1-Bit/2.8224 MHz DSDIFF format used in creating the SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc). The MR-2000S-BK goes above and beyond this industry standard to provide 1-Bit/5.6448 MHz recording. At such accelerated sampling rates, the entire sound stage is faithfully captured, even during the softest passages. The clarity, ambience and true dynamic range of the original sound source are preserved with unprecedented accuracy.
By mastering in this superior format, the recorded material can always be re-created natively in whatever format you require, providing a true future-proof archive. In supporting these recording requirements, the MR-2000S-BK uses the highest-quality components available - the CS4398 Digital to Analog Converter from Cirrus Logic and the Burr-Brown PCM4202 Analog to Digital Converter from Texas Instruments Corporation - minimizing any possible degradation of the audio signal. In addition to the aforementioned 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz 1-Bit formats (DSDIFF, WSD and DSF formats are supported), the MR-2000S-BK is ready to record in any of the current 16-Bit and 24-Bit formats (from 44.1 kHz up to 192 kHz) directly, in BWF (Broadcast WAV) or AIFF formats, and can even playback MP3 files.
Generous 160 GB HDD
The internal 160 GB hard disk allows approximately 29 hours of recording at the highest quality (1-bit 5.6448 MHz stereo), or approximately 240 hours of CD-quality (16-bit 44.1 kHz stereo). You can connect the MR-2000S-BK to your PC via the USB 2.0-compatible port and transfer the recorded data at high speed. The MR-2000S-BK can also be used as a FAT32 USB external drive to carry source material and other files when needed.
MR Control Link for Multi-Unit Operations
The MR Control Link feature allows one MR-2000S-BK to be assigned as the master, controlling the recorder operations such as playback and recording on multiple MR2000S/S-BK Studio Recorders. The synchronization clock and transport control signals are relayed via standard S/P DIF cables. This means that 7.1 channel surround or multi-track live recordings can be conveniently captured in the superlative DSD format. This function is also valuable as a way to create 1-Bit archives of multi-track sources such as stem mixes.
Dual Mono Mode
Dual Mono Recording capability allows two mono files to be generated.
