Both omnidirectional and XY stereo mic types are integrated into the R-26's chassis, providing mic options to suit any style of audio recording. In addition, there are two XLR/TRS combo inputs with phantom power for connecting high quality external mics or line-level devices, plus a stereo mini-jack for a plug-in powered mic. The R-26 is equipped with Roland's proprietary IARC (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit) on the inputs for the built-in mics and as well as the external inputs. This analog circuit is completely isolated from the digital circuitry and has its own power supply, reducing digital noise and achieving very clear sound. Audio from the onboard mics can be mixed internally and captured to a single stereo file. The onboard mics and external inputs can be recorded as three separate stereo files (six channels total) for mixing together later. Resolutions from MP3 up to 24-bit/96kHz are supported, and available file types include WAV and BWF. The unit can also record both WAV/BWF and MP3 formats simultaneously.
