TASCAM’s DR-10C-series recorders connect to your lavaliere microphone to create a compact recording system that fits on a belt pack. Two versions are available: the DR-10CS for Sennheiser mics and DR-10CH for Shure microphones. Additionally, option kits are available for Sony/RAMSA (AK-DR10CR.) and Shure (AK-DR10CH)

The DR-10CS & CH recorders have both inputs and outputs, so they can either be used stand-alone or with a wireless transmitter. When used with a transmitter, the DR-10C 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. When multiple units are used, an infrared signal can synchronize settings between recorders.

Whether using it as a backup or as a primary recording system, there’s nothing else like the TASCAM DR-10CS and CH.

Backup audio recording is possible by connecting this recorder to a wireless beltpack system

Use as a backup recorder connected between a wireless System mic and its transmitter

The DR-10 recorder can be connected between the mic and a transmitter of a wireless system from a supported manufacturer. Connect the mic to 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.

Designs that support the wireless systems of several manufacturers
The lineup includes models that can be used with several manufacturers. Standard models support Sennheiser and Shure wireless systems. In addition, Sony/RAMSA and Shure 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

Compact and lightweight
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.

Reliable system with independent signal circuitry for recording, and pass-thru from mic to transmitter
The signal from the wireless system mic is input to the recorder - and separately passed-thru directly to the transmitter. With this reliable design, if the battery dies and the unit stops, the transmission of the audio signal to the wireless system will not be affected.
Linear PCM recorder with high-quality audio

Designed to capture high-quality mono audio at 48kHz/24-bit. Perfect for television, film and stage performances - as well as lectures and other professional recording applications

Designed with mono audio recording using a 48kHz/24-bit mono WAV/BWF recording format.

Pair the recorder with a lavalier mic for use as a compact, wearable linear PCM recorder
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.
Designed to provide reliable recording in the field - with attention to quick device setting and post production needs

Sliding record switch and hold function to prevent misoperation during recording

The recording switch uses a sliding mechanism. This prevents misoperation from accidentally pressing a button. In addition, the hold function can prevent recording from being stopped by accidental contact with a button.

Multiple functions, including dual-recording for simultaneously creating a safety track at a lower level.
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.

Before the battery charge runs out, automatic file closing prevents the loss of already recorded data
You can check the battery level on the easy-to-read organic EL display. Even if the battery should run out unexpectantly, the unit will automatically close the file to prevent the loss of already recorded data before it shuts down.

Built-in clock function and support for BWF files (time information stored in metadata)
This unit has a built-in clock and supports BWF audio files that have time information added to them. This feature is helpful for searching and editing recorded audio files.

Playback function for checking recordings, and the headphone output enables input monitoring
Even though this unit is compact, it can play back recorded files. You can also connect headphones to check recorded data right away, and to monitor the input during recording.

Settings can be transferred between multiple DR-10C units using the infrared transmission function
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.
