Its single rackspace design ensures discreet integration into your rack setup, making this handy recording device ideal for DJs, musicians, bars, clubs, schools, houses of worship and anywhere else high-quality audio recording is a must. The DRP-1 is also great for front-of-house applications, even as a backup recorder for the most sophisticated FOH setups.

For true recording versatility, the DRP-1 features a USB port and SD card slot, allowing you to record directly to a thumb drive or memory card.

On the front, the recorder provides ¼-inch stereo line inputs, a ¼-inch mic input and a ¼-inch headphone jack with dedicated volume control.

Gemini DRP-1 good value

September 16, 2013

This unit is being used in our church sound room to record messages. This unit does just what its says it will do. We record to a USB flash drive and put it on our PC. The interface is a little clunky and could use improvement. The sound quality is OK for voice not sure about quality for other audio. For the price it is a good deal.

Basic features, easy to use

September 17, 2013

For simple "click record and go", this is a recorder to consider. The sound quality is OK, but don't expect a wide variety of formats or editing. I did have some trouble getting the recording level tweaked, but once that was done, it's "point and click".
Built into a portable 19" case together with and permanently hooked up to the mixing console, it's now very easy to record every band performance I work with.
