Digital Audio Recorder With Lavalier Microphone
The DR-10L is an ultra-compact digital recorder / lavalier microphone combination. Designed for both the creative filmmaker and the busy videographer, it is a powerful problem solver providing professional sonics and high convenience. For location recording, a DR-10L can be mounted to each on-camera actor, making booms, wires or expensive (and unpredictable) wireless systems unnecessary. The DR-10L is also an inspiring tool for the experimental audio designer thanks to its portability, high quality and a tiny, professionally spec’d microphone.
For added flexibility, the included wired lavalier microphone is affixed via a screw connector compatible with most Sennheiser lavalier microphones and other mics with the same connector.
New: DR-10L now bundles iZotope RX 7 Elements
The DR-10L is now bundling with a free full version of RX 7 Elements, iZotope’s groundbreaking audio repair and noise reduction tool. This combination brings a powerful recording and editing workflow solution to live productions where ambient noise and environmental distractions are common post production challenges, including weddings, on-location films, and documentaries, to name a few. The bundle of DR-10L and RX 7 Elements reflects synergy at its best, where individual components in the production chain combine to create a solution greater than the sum of the two parts.

Universal problem solver
Building on the success of the Tascam DR-10X and the DR-10SG, the DR-10L combines the industry-standard Tascam portable mini recorder with a high-performance lavalier mic. Easy to use – and easy to wear –, the DR-10L can become your universal problem solver to avoid poor production audio.
Security and convenience for your recording sessions
Create two recordings simultaneously at different levels
Film-makers and videographers often experience sudden audio volume jumps during filming. An actor could decide to scream a line and a documentary subject could do almost anything. Designed to be used as a self-contained remote recording device, the DR-10L is well prepared to deal with these scenarios. It has several features to prevent distorted audio, but the most secure is Dual Recording. This feature captures a copy of your signal at a lower level, as a safety track in case of distortion.
Automatic file closing saves file data before the battery runs out
You can always monitor the battery level on the easy-to-read OLED display. If the battery runs out in the middle of a recording, the unit will automatically save the file before turning off so your take isn’t lost. And the case is designed so that batteries can be changed quickly.
Auto level, limiter and other functions solve common recording level problems
If the input sound volume is too low or too high, an automatic level function can increase or decrease the recording level to an appropriate value. The limiter prevents distortion caused by sudden input overloads. These functions save you from worrying about recording level settings in situations when there is no second chance.
Compact and lightweight body
The DR-10L is small, easy to conceal and weighs only 63 grams including battery. Perfect for on-camera talent, documentary subjects, press conferences or minutes recording, the DR-10L can easily be hidden away so that nothing comes between you and the perfect shot (with perfect audio!).
Up to 10 hours continuous operation on a single battery
One easily obtained Alkaline AAA battery powers the DR-10L for up to 10 hours continuously. You can also use disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries.
