TASCAM has announced several unique features for the DR-10L Micro Linear PCM Recorder. With its ultra-compact form factor and the included lavalier microphone, the DR-10L is suitable for videographers, filmmakers, event producers, and vloggers.
The DR-10L’s OLED backlit display provides clear, real time information about record levels, SD card status, and more. In addition to its support for 48kHz/24-bit BWF (Broadcast Wave Format), WAV format recording, the DR-10L also offers MP3 recording at both 128kbps and 192kbps.
Also included is the DR-10L’s Poly file dual record capability with adjustable dB level that automatically makes a backup track to the SD card. Users can, for example, set the dB level of the backup track to -6dB or-12dB to ensure recordings that are free from clipping or distortion. There is always a secondary track for worry-free “no second take” recording. Also notable, level meters are now active during both recording and playback. When combined with the included iZotope RX Elements software package for Mac or PC, users can ensure recordings are devoid of noise, air conditioning hum, fabric or other lavalier rustle noises.
The TASCAM DR-10L uses a single AAA battery with 10 hours of operation from one alkaline battery or fifteen hours via a lithium battery.
Other features include Auto Gain, a Limiter, and Low-Cut filter. The new features are included with all new DR-10L recorders, and previous units can easily be updated.
