About Fostex

The Fostex Rack-Mount Stereo Audio Recorder is a professional-level stereo audio recorder designed for installation applications. The unit has dual SDHC card slots and a USB 2.0 connector, allowing you to alternate recording and playback among different media. The UR-2 records mono or stereo WAV files at up to 24-bit/96kHz.

The recorder uses the widely-used FAT32 disc format, making it easy to transfer files to a computer for DAW manipulation. Analog input and output connections are made via standard XLR and RCA connectors. Digital I/O is provided via XLR connectors. A microphone input with +48V phantom power is provided on the front panel for recording speech, or mixing live speech with pre-recorded material.

Playback features include the ability to create 99 cue points with a locate function. Timer Play and Power On Play enable automatic playback at predetermined times. Remote control can be achieved via footswitch, parallel connection, or RS-232 connection. A keyboard may be connected via the USB port for editing file names, as well as controlling record and playback functions.
