The ZR-1 fits into a standard field recorder bag and needs only a USB connection for audio recording

Targeted at users of the Zylia ZM-1 microphone system, the new ZR-1 portable recording device offers a laptop replacement for outdoor and ambient sound recordings, third-order Ambisonics and 360° recording. It is designed to simplify outdoor recording, with the freedom to record hundreds of hours of 360° audio in ‘virtually any environment’.

Measuring 206mm x 196mm x 58mm and weighing around 1kg, it fits into a standard field recorder bag and needs only a USB connection for audio recording. Equipped with an SDXC memory card (up to 2TB) and powered either by eight AA batteries or an external 5V power source, the ZR-1 can record and store over 220 hours of 19-channel 48kHz/24-bit PCM audio or around 300 hours of compressed data (Wavepack). Stored files can be transferred to other external devices. 

Monitoring and playback directly from the device are possible with an integrated stereo 3.5mm mini-jack headphone output with built-in player and volume control functionality. It comes with built-in LED indicators to show the status of the device, SD card and battery, as well as clipping and Bluetooth to allow users to remotely control the ZR-1 through the device app on mobile devices.

Also new is the 6DoF VR/AR Development Kit, which allows the capture of high-quality, higher-order Ambisonics simultaneously at multiple points around the recorded scene. The 6DoF Development Kit includes nine ZM-1 microphone arrays and driver, the 6DoF recording application for recording from multiple ZM-1 microphones and the 6DoF control panel, which provides audio gain control and LED control for all connected ZM-1 microphones. Users also receive the Zylia Pro software package, featuring Zylia Studio, Zylia Studio Pro and Zylia Ambisonics Converter.

Users can experiment with different spatial arrangements of ZM-1 recording devices, allowing them to streamline and optimise the capture of 3D audio for VR and AR applications. Audio engineers and creatives are able to place multiple ZM-1 devices around a sound scene to capture audio through the 3D space.
