The AK Recorder is a modular recorder product, designed to be used in combination with any AK300 Series(AK380, AK320 and AK300) product, that delivers live-quality recording and playback of vocals and instrumentals.
This portable, handy recorder offers a wide range of features, such as DSD 5.6MHz recording (the first of its kind in a portable recorder), support for professional condenser microphones through independent phantom power, detailed control of microphones and pre-amplifier Gains, an interface that spans both analog and digital,
a digital limiter for professionals, a peak hold, a low cut filter, and support for a number of recording options including pre-recording.
No matter which AK300 Series product you choose, you will be surprised to find an aesthetically pleasing design and the ability to take advantage of the advanced recording technology in the AK Recorder. Take your first transformational step from music consumer to music producer by combining the AK Recorder with an Astell&Kern Portable Player. The AK Recorder features professional functions never found before in a portable recorder. The AK Recorder is capable of recording sounds from a variety of sources. You can record live sessions, vocals, instruments and speech, as well as both analog and digital sources by connecting it with other devices.
Simply install the free, dedicated application on your smartphone or tablet and you can record as much as you want from the convenience of that device, even if the actual recorder is somewhere else. You can start/stop/pause recording, adjust Gain, view level meters in real-time and access other professional features with just a touch. The application supports up to 4 AK Recorders and of course you can start/stop/pause the recordings of each individual recorder.
While many expensive, professional products typically support up to 24bit/192kHz recording, the AK Recorder provides support for DSD 5.6MHz recording for a proper recording of original sound.
With the support of DSD 5.6MHz recording you will be able to record each and every second of a live music recording in DSD 5.6MHz format, the format closest to analog in terms of quality. Just like Astell&Kern products provide listeners with the ultimate sound quality via DSD playback, using the DSD 5.6MHz recording feature on the AK Recorder you can record the entire live session experience, from the breath of the main vocalist to the sound of air that fills the space in the best sound possible. The goal of Astell&Kern is to convey sound in a form that is faithful to its source. Now you can record, play and listen to the most faithful sound possible with the AK Recorder.
