TASCAM Recorders for lavalier microphones


The DR-10C-series of Tascam 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 TASCAM 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 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.

Back up Recording for wireless mics.

The DR-10C Tascam 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 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 the transmitter. Included is a silicon 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.
