Gemini DRP-1 Digital Studio Recorder with USB

The DRP-1 from Gemini is a standalone digital rackmountable recorder that allows you to record and playback from one convenient device. Its single rackspace design ensures discreet integration into your rack setup, making this handy recording device ideal for DJs, musicians, bars, clubs, schools, houses of worship and anywhere else high-quality audio recording is a must. The DRP-1 is also great for front-of-house applications, even as a backup recorder for the most sophisticated FOH setups.

For true recording versatility, the DRP-1 features a USB port and SD card slot, allowing you to record directly to a thumb drive or memory card. And to ensure your file format suits your specific recording needs, the DRP-1 gives you the option to record in a variety of MP3 formats or in WAV at 44.1kHz/16-bit. For added flexibility, you can also choose to record in Stereo or Mono mode. And once your recording is complete, it's easy to download the file to your PC or Mac - just use the included USB cable to connect the DRP-1 to your computer, or simply eject your media storage device and hook it up to your computer directly.

To ensure total connecting convenience, the DRP-1 has a host of inputs and outputs, allowing you to hook up microphones, keyboards and other electronic instruments with ease. Or, if you're recording a full band, go direct from your mixer and capture true soundboard audio. On the back, the unit features a stereo RCA line input, stereo RCA line output, XLR 1/4" combo mic input and balanced XLR outputs. On the front, the recorder provides 1/4" stereo line inputs, a 1/4" mic input and a 1/4" headphone jack with dedicated volume control.

Navigating through files and folders on the DRP-1 is easy thanks to its large, bright full-color LCD screen and Search jog wheel. During recording, the display screen indicates information like file format, track time, file number and amount of space left on the SD card.

DRP-1 Awesome
Pros: Low Distortion,Easy To Use,Excellent Sound

Very easy to use and does what it says. Have used it to record a live acoustic band, just get the mix set on the mixer with effects and with there permission gave them a cd so they could listen to what they sound like.
Record to thumb drive, import to your computor and use Audacity to insert markers for the tracks and youve got a cd. Have not tried plugging live instruments in.

Affordable Rackmount Recorder
Pros: Easy To Use,Rackmount,Affordable

The most affordable rackmount digital recorder on the market (as of April 2015). I was looking for a rackmountable unit to replace my handheld digital recorder. Now my Mobile DJ rig is ready to go without the need to plug-in extra cables/components at each and every gig. This convenience alone is worth the price. Not to mention, the quality and features are great.

Serves it's Purpose
Pros: Compact
Cons: Difficult To Use

I'm using this as dedicated player/recorder when the low relaiability of a PC is not an option. It works fine so far, but is a little clunky to use.
