anyone know the max card this device can handle?

An owner's manual hasn't been posted yet, but the "product highlights" state that the R-07 records to microSD & microSDHC cards (like the Sony M10), but unlike it's handheld Roland predecessors. No mention of microSDXC. Currently, SDHC specifications allow for memory cards of capacities between 4GB - 32GB. The Edirol/Roland products I've used tend not to be too finicky about card brand/type.

I'm sorry but... not very good quality. Now I'm sad.

That's using internal mics, right?

Internals are usually crap. I don't think anyone here expects the R-07 to be any exception. It will, just as the its precursor R-05, be best used with external microphones.
It's not about fancy equipment. It's about the thrill, passion and hard work. Liberate the music!

With no Line Input, it remains to be seen whether external mics can be used at all.  Since you're forced to use the R-07's internal mic preamp, the unit will likely overload at anything but an acoustic performance. Can't wait till an actual taper gets a hold of one so well know once and for all.

There is line input. It is switchable.

is it actually "line"? Aux doesn't take as high a signal as line and since it says "aux" I think that's what people are wondering about
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

Based on what I was told when I called Roland, there is no way to switch the Mic preamp off. It is strictly a Mic input.

I certainly hope that info is wrong, but after calling them 15 times and speaking to staff that couldnt answer my questions, I finally got connected to someone who sounded like he knew what he was talking about. He told me no switch in the menu.

On Roland’s website, the specs say it is variable
input, and -31 db is the default.
