VR320, VR240, and VR208HF Logging Recorders

The Eventide PC Remote Control kit provides the ability to fully control and monitor one to eight digital audio logging recorders from one standard PC with Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT, or XP.



All of the search, playback, record, and configuration functions that are available from the front panel of the logger are duplicated at the PC. The connection between the PC and the logging recorder(s) is an RS485 serial data link for control and a twisted pair for audio. The control program works as a normal Windows application.

The remote control kit contains an RS485 to RS232 converter, a remote under-the-monitor speaker, and application software supplied on CD. RS485 and the audio line output allow for hundreds of feet between the PC and the logging recorder(s). The software also provides for remote search, play, and live monitor operations from any touch-tone telephone.
