Beyond the Smartphone
While a smartphone can cover some basic recording situations, for reliable and professional results you really need a dedicated recorder. But a lot of recorders are bulky, complicated, and require an array of wires and adapters. The R-07 is simple and intuitive, goes anywhere, and provides every recording function you need, leaving your phone free to do what it does best.
Beauty and Brains
The R-07 looks great, sounds superb, and fits comfortably in your hand or your pocket. It’s easy to use yet provides truly professional results with one-touch recording setup. Its next-generation Bluetooth capabilities mean you can control, monitor and listen back wirelessly using supported smartphones, smartwatches and Bluetooth speakers. It comes in three stylish colors and runs on two AA batteries or USB bus power.
Set the Scene
A recorder as compact and go-anywhere as the R-07 could end up in a lot of different recording situations. Whether it’s on-location interviews, on-the-road demos, classrooms, boardrooms, field recording, or just about anything else you can imagine, the R-07 can automatically apply the ideal settings. When you select a Scene, the sample rate, record mode, limiter, low cut, and input level instantly adjust to their optimal settings. And you can alter any of the settings and save them for next time, so you’ll never miss that magic moment.
Designed for a Wireless World
The R-07 uses the latest Bluetooth technology with Qualcomm aptX for enhanced streaming performance. Remote control from your smartphone or from supported smartwatches. Manage recordings and ensure what’s being recorded is exactly what you want, even while the R-07 is in its prime recording location, and out of reach. Listen on wireless headphones or Bluetooth speakers—all while cutting cable clutter and staying out of the way of your recording subjects.

Edited to add: I heard back from Roland support and they admitted that transfer speed from the R-07 to a computer is slower than with the R-05. They add that transfer speeds to the R-07 are faster. Why I would care about that? This is a recorder. The support isn't there for this product. I can not recommend it for any reason.
Works perfectly with my Apple iPhone SE with the App. I can control the unit at a gig with my phone 30' away and place the unit on a camera tripod because of the mount screw hole on the device. Nice. Placing the recorder and tripod where necessary for the best sound is possible with this device.
Big mistake with transfer file speeds. Why the heck did Roland make the USB slow down to what seems USB 1.0 speeds? I can tell it's not even USB 2.0 speeds. I have a USB 3.0 capable mac. If I want the files quickly, I would have to eject the tiny micro-SDHC card, put it into a Micro SD adapter, and then put that into my mac and get the true speed of the memory card. Or I would have to buy an MicroSDHC hub and connect that hub to the mac. In fact, that would be easier than mounting that tiny card into the larger Micro SD adapter and inserting that adapter into my Mac. But both are a hassle. My mac has a built-in SD memory card slot. The easiest method is indeed using a USB cable, but again, expect nearly USB 1.0 speeds.
What bean counter over at Roland thought this would be a good idea? It took 1 full hour to transfer 1GB of recordings to my Mac. If you have time to park the recorder and dump it, it's fine. If you're under pressure, don't bet on the transfer speed. Roland, that decision was ridiculous. You almost approached perfection. I suspect an accountant wanted to cut some kind of cost and save $2.00 of expense for a more expensive USB chip. That's my hunch.
Or, maybe the chips for USB 2.0 and above would make the remarkable 15 hour battery life a pipe dream due to higher current drain, even when idle. I don't know. Maybe it was the engineers who suggested this to get more battery life?
Improvements I would gladly pay extra for:
-Make it USB 3.0, or USB 2.0 at the least. Even 10 hours battery life is remarkable for a device like this.
-Make a metal case but still lightweight and small.
-Keep the door to the battery simple like it is, no complicated door-latch with moving parts like your Edirol R-09 which I bought a long time ago. Complicated mechanical doors to get to the batteries and memory card will break and make the otherwise pristine electronics unusable.
You almost had a home-run and you turned it into a run to second-base. Why?
All that said, I am going to keep it. I can let it park on my mac to transfer audio as I do other things. If I were doing this for work, under pressure, like a journalist, I might skip this device. But I bought this for music mostly. I like the control of it from iPhone. My guess is the next iteration of this device will be the homerun. Cheers.
-- Edit January 2018: I've been using this recorder for live music and binaural recording with the Rolnd cs-10em. The line in no longer functions. For binuaral recording I'm moving on to the Tascam DR-05. The built-in mics still work, but my faith in the device is down.
I also own or have owned several Zoom and Tascam mini-recording devices (H1, H2, H4, etc.). They are all pretty good but the R07 is a step up with features and form-factor.
