A captive XLR connector attaches firmly to any dynamic microphone for capturing interviews in Broadcast WAV format at 48-kHz/24-bit resolution. Recordings can be offloaded through a USB connection or by loading the microSD card into a computer.
The DR-10X offers both manual and automatic gain setting, a low-cut filter and a limiter to prevent overloads. The Dual Recording mode can be used to create a copy of the audio at a lower level as a backup track in case there is distortion. Recording can begin instantly by sliding the record switch while turning the unit on.
Record audio without a cable
This audio recorder is designed for plug-on connection, so it can be connected directly to XLR handheld dynamic mics or battery-powered condenser mics. Thus, it is perfectly suited for recording interviews, conferences, seminars, meetings and any other situation using a handheld microphone.
Compact and lightweight yet fully featured
The DR-10X fits in the palm of the hand and is a true lightweight at only 56.3 grams. For small-scale reporting, you can record high-quality audio with just a microphone and the DR-10X. There is no need to carry bulky equipment – you can now record with a compact rig that you can hold in one hand.
The DR-10X features a headphone output to check recorded data right away and to monitor the input during recording along with a dual-recording for simultaneously creating a safety track at a lower level.
Designed to capture high-quality mono audio
The DR-10X creates mono WAV audio files at 48 kHz/24 bit （BWF format）which is ideal for recording interviews, press conferences, meetings and other sources that are not needed in stereo format. You can use the automatic gain function and use the switchable limiter for overload protection or adjust the input level manually. And the dual-recording function records a safety track at a lower level.
Designed to provide reliable recording in the field
To ensure high reliability, the DR-10X is engineered to prevent misoperation during recording. The recording switch uses a sliding mechanism that prevents misoperation from accidentally pressing a button. In addition, the hold function can prevent recording from being stopped by accidental contact with a button.
You can check the battery level on the easy-to-read organic EL display. Even if the battery should run out unexpectedly, the unit will automatically close the file before it shuts down to prevent loss of already recorded data.
Time information is stored with the audio data for easy searching and editing. And you can also let the unit create new files at regular intervals during recording without interruption.
