Actually I didn’t mean you magmazing
I just was talking about bad intel on
a product. I think people expect too much
out of a $229 consumer product. It’s the cheapest
link in my chain and to me a drop in the ocean campared
to what I spent on all my other gear in this hobby.

I have left recorders by the board for shows and started them
2 hours before show time and let them run all night. You don’t need
Bluetooth just good batteries

I usually leave my M-10's at soundboards BECAUSE of the battery life.  Do you happen to know the battery life of the R-07 at 24/48?  Although I don't use the M-10's for much these days, except when at festivals (SBD patches), tenuous weather conditions and multiple stages...where I have to walk away from the equipment, I like to know my options and this seems like a good machine for this.

Do the bluetooth problems happen at home too or only when the recorder is surrounded by loads of other wireless equipment / phones at a gig?  The latter scenario is quite a tough ask, I would have thought.

I have yet to use the R-07 at a gig, but at home or outside I've had no problems with bluetooth up to 20 feet.

with fresh rayovac alkalines i did 2 UM shows with opening acts and it was full after first show and at 3/4 after second show. at least one show i ran all the way thru setbreaks so 4+ hours

but 3/4 to zero was like an hour and a half. i wouldnt go into a show without battery showing full. i have no problem flipping out half full batteries and then using them elsewhere, better safe than sorry.

but as far as unattended at a soundboard on fresh batteries, id say 6 hours easy

Thanks, ~6 hours isn't bad...typical for Roland.  The Sony M-10 is something like 50 freakin' hours on a pair of alkaline AA's, which is redunckulus!

I was able to get the bluetooth remote to connect to my Samsung S8 exactly one time. It absolutely will not reconnect to the S8 again no matter what I do. Is anyone else having bluetooth problems or am I doing something wrong? Is there a trick to connecting it? The manual is almost completely useless.

Update: Found a workaround. If I switch bluetooth on th S8 off, then on again, it will reconnect to the R-07 almost every time. A pain, but it seems to work.

Update 2: Woke up this morning and Bluetooth remote will no longer work, no matter what! The workaround above no longer works either!

I have yet to get my Pixel 2 XL or iPhone 6 to connect via Bluetooth. I've tried everything mentioned above.  Multiple emails to Roland have also gone unanswered.

The Pixel sometimes shows it paired even though the r-07 never does, but it won't even show up as available for the iPhone.

more r-07 goodness.

Apparently the video is no longer on youtube because of a copyright claim by Malina.

I bet your audio sounded better than the audio she uses in her showreel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1B7gtzqDD0

Oh well. Maybe she doesn't want free publicity. Too bad for her.
