TASCAM DR-10L Digital Audio Recorder with Lavalier Mic
Styled in black, the DR-10L Digital Audio Recorder with Lavalier Mic from Tascam is an ultra-compact, digital recorder and lavalier microphone combo with a screw-down locking connector compatible with most Sennheiser lavalier mics. It can be used for both the creative filmmaker and the busy videographer, and is also suitable for location recordings such as live events, and more.
Featuring 24-bit mono and 48 kHz BWAV (Broadcast Wav) file format, it records up to 32GB on microSD or microSDHC media. There is a 1/8" headphone-output jack for easy monitoring of recordings and the recorder runs on a single AAA battery, which records up to 10 hours.
Furthermore, the limiter function automatically reduces input level to prevent distortion and the dual recording mode records to two files simultaneously with different gain levels. The easy-to-read OLED display has a wide viewing angle, and the built-in micro-USB Type-B port provides for external power and easy file transfer to a computer.
Finally, designed as part of a complete audio toolkit, the DR-10L delivers a flexible set of solutions for any audio production issue.
Building on the success of the DR-10X and the DR-10SG, the DR-10L marries the industry-standard TASCAM portable mini-recorder with a high-performance lavalier mic. Easy-to-use - and easy-to-wear - the DR-10L can become your secret weapon in the war against poor production audio.
Dual Recording Records Two Files Simultaneously at Different Levels
The DR-10L has several features to prevent distorted audio, but the most secure is dual recording. This feature captures a copy of your signal at a lower level, as a safety track in case of distortion.
Automatic File Closing Saves File Data Before the Battery Runs Out
You can always monitor the battery level on the easy-to-read OLED display. If the battery runs out in the middle of a recording, the unit will automatically save the file before turning off so your take isn't lost. The case is designed so that the batteries can be changed quickly, without removing the recorder from the camera shoe mount.
Automatic Level, Limiter, and Other Functions
If the input sound level is too low or too high, an automatic level function can increase or decrease the recording volume to an appropriate level. The limiter prevents distortion caused by sudden input overloads. These functions save you from worrying about recording-level settings in situations when there is no second chance.
Compact and Lightweight Body
The DR-10L has been designed to be small, light, and easy to conceal. Perfect for on-camera talent, documentary subjects, or entire wedding parties. The DR-10L can easily be hidden away so that nothing comes between you and the perfect shot.
Operates up to 10 Hours Continuously
One easily obtained alkaline AAA battery powers the DR-10L for up to 10 hours continuously. The DR-10L can also use disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries.
