The Olympus Digital Voice Recorder VP-10 is a pen-sized digital recorder intended for capturing lectures, conferences, and business meetings. Powered by a single AAA rechargeable nickel-metal hydride battery, the device offers up to 50 hours of recording time or 29 hours of playback. An integrated 4GB USB flash drive on one end of the devices makes it easy to transfer recorded PCM, WMA, or MP3 files directly to a computer by simply plugging the unit into an available USB port. The battery can also be recharged via the USB connection and the unit can double as a USB storage device.

The other end of the recorder features a stereo pair of omnidirectional microphones that have been optimised for capturing speech. Active noise cancellation helps reduce handling noise to improve intelligibility and a low-cut filter switch helps remove infrasonic energy such as from HVAC systems. A threshold can be set to turn the recorder on and off.

Selectable modes such as for language learning, pocket recording, conferences, negotiations, and memos optimise the performance of the microphone and internal DSP for the intended application. An integrated LCD display provides visual feedback for organising files and monitoring battery life, while a file splitting function helps make large files more manageable.

A one-touch record button instantly starts recording, even from the powered off position to ensure critical information is recorded. A Voice Balancer algorithm helps make the volume of voices recorded from different distances more consistent, which is especially useful when recording conferences or business meetings.

Variable playback speeds between 0.5 and 2x allow for faster transcriptions without shifting the pitch of the speaker's voice. A "Starting Character" mode can be engaged to pause and re-start the recording three seconds back to ease with transcription or for repeating a word while learning a foreign language. Transport controls enable you to skip ahead in the recording by 10 second skips. An integrated clip allows the recorder to rest and record from within a shirt or coat pocket for discrete recording applications without any sounds or light coming from the recorder.

Key Features

Anti-Rustle Filter

Identifies the difference between a voice and a rustling sound and suppresses the noise only

One-Touch Recording

Allows you to silently and quickly activate the recording with one-touch, even in your pocket thanks to the REC slide switch. This allows you to start recording without making the other party self-conscious as well as record in an instant with just a touch, so you never miss a recording opportunity

USB Direct Connection

Lets you connect directly to a PC simply by removing the cover. This allows you to easily exchange data between PC without the need for cable or software as well as recharge the unit from the PC without taking out the battery. It also allows the unit to be used as a USB storage device

Four Recording Scene Modes, Including "Pocket Mode"

Allows you to choose optimum recording settings according to specific scenes

Search Files Quickly with "Date Search" Function

Helps you select the target file easily and conveniently. You can access this function by holding down the Menu/Scene button, When the Intro Playback function is on, it will playback the first few second of the file. This is even more useful when used together with the "Date Search" function

New Noise-Cancellation Function

Strongly cuts out background noise recorded with the voice

Voice Balancer Function

Makes smaller voices louder and ensures that louder voices stay below a given level, providing playback where everyone can be heard clearly

Create Meeting Minutes Efficiently with "Transcription Mode"

Allows you to create minutes or notes from your meeting recordings. While you transcribe, you would frequently repeat play and stop to cheque the content. Therefore when you resume, the recorder will automatically playback 3 seconds before, so that you can cheque the contents you need. On the other hand, fast forward will be preset to 2.0x so that you can conveniently skip the silence. Also, since the volume level of a speaker tends to differ in a meeting, the Voice Balancer helps to normalise the audio level
