Techopedia explains Solid State Recorder (SSR)

SSRs and traditional audio recorders (such as reel-to-reel) differ in terms of how data is stored and accessed, as SSR data is digitally stored in memory chips. SSRs are usually integrated with a solid state storage mechanism like CompactFlash (CF) or Microdrive (MD).

Key SSR features are as follows:
  • Provides faster speeds for data saving and retrieval
  • Saves audio data in multiple formats
  • Compresses stored data by default
