The Tascam DR-10C-series recorders connect to your lavalier microphone to create a compact recording system that fits on a belt pack. The DR-10CS is designed for use with Sennheiser microphones. An option kit is available for Sony/Ramsa (AK-DR10CR).
The DR-10C recorders have both inputs and outputs, so they can either be used standalone or with a wireless transmitter. When used with a transmitter, the unit acts as a backup to protect against wireless dropouts during recording. For lectures or worship services, the DR-10C can record the entire program before it gets to the front-of-house system. And for events like weddings and reality TV production, the DR-10C is a compact recording system for body mics.
The lightweight DR-10C runs for hours on a single AAA battery. It records to standard microSD media. Recording features include auto-gain and a low-cut filter for a simple setup. Its Dual Recording feature records a safety track of your audio at a lower level, so in case of distortion, you have a non-clipped backup.
The DR-10C recorder can be connected between the microphone and a transmitter of a wireless system from a supported manufacturer. Connect the mic to the recorder and use the included cable to connect it to the transmitter. This setup is perfect for use as a backup recorder – assuring the capture of audio should the signal sent through the wireless system be interrupted.
The lineup includes models that can be used by several manufacturers. Standard models support Sennheiser and Shure wireless systems. In addition, Sony and RAMSA systems can also be used by installing optional replacement panels with the required connectors.
Note: The Sony/RAMSA panel has a sliding switch to allow proper wiring configuration.
The DR-10C is compact – fitting in the palm of the hand and lightweight at 51 grams. Moreover, it is designed to be carried like a single unit with a transmitter. Included is a silicone band that can be used to attach it to the transmitter, and a durable belt clip – allowing several options for use depending on the situation.
The DR-10C can be utilized in recording situations when performers or speakers might move outside the wireless system reception area. When not used with a wireless system, it is perfect as a stand-alone, compact wearable recorder when paired with a lavalier microphone.
Many times, there is only one chance to get the desired audio. This unit has functions to prevent issues related to recording level settings – including a dual recording function that allows you to set the recording level as high as possible while simultaneously recording a backup track at a lower level.
In addition, this unit has an automatic gain control function that adjusts the input level to match the input volume. There is also a limiter function.
- Sliding record switch and hold function to prevent misoperation during recording
- Multiple functions, including dual-recording for simultaneously creating a safety track at a lower level
- Before the battery charge runs out, automatic file closing prevents the loss of already recorded data
- Built-in clock function and support for BWF files (time information stored in metadata)
- Playback function for checking recordings, and the headphone output enables input monitoring
The infrared transmission function makes it possible to easily transmit settings from one DR-10C to another. When using multiple units, you can copy the settings of one unit that has already been set to other units one after another.
