Take Your Voice Recordings to the Next Level

Videographers love the Tascam DR-10L Pro portable recorder with clip-on microphone as an easy and unobtrusive solution for capturing audio for video. Combining the clip-on convenience of a lavalier microphone with an ultra-compact portable recorder, this form factor solves many of the problems content creators often face. It’s a superior solution for busy events such as weddings and on-location film shoots.

While traditional wireless microphone systems can pose workflow concerns, the rock-solid performance of a Tascam wired lavalier recorder is proven and assured. Simple plug-and-go operation also makes the DR-10L Pro an easy backup system for your typical voice recording setup.

The DR-10L Pro’s 32-bit float recording technology lets you capture a whisper, a scream and everything in between with impeccable fidelity, ultra-low noise and no need to fine-tune gain levels. Support for wireless timecode sync with Atomos products, the ability to wirelessly control up to five recorders from the app*, plus long battery life and generous storage capacity make the DR-10L Pro ideal for professional applications.

*optional AK-BT1 required for app control and wireless timecode sync



Overview & Features


A Highly Inconspicuous Recorder With Microphone

Tascam DR-10L Pro: A tiny, unobstrusive professional voice recorder.

Ultra-compact and lightweight, the DR-10L Pro is the perfect solution when stealth is a priority. Fitting in the palm of your hand and weighing just 65 grams, this recorder is easy to hide at film shoots, weddings, stage performances, and other projects where invisibility is crucial.

The included belt clip attaches easily and securely to clothing, allowing you to capture great audio without compromising your talent.

Using the DR-10L Pro’s standard 32-bit float recording mode, two analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs) capture sound over an enormous dynamic range without distortion or excessive noise. This means that videographers can avoid having to discard recordings due to poor levels. With 32-bit float resolution, there’s no need to adjust input gain levels, so you can set up faster and be confident that you’re recording excellent audio in every situation.

The included TM-10L microphone captures clear, detailed audio while handling high sound pressure levels without distortion, making it the perfect lav mic for 32-bit float recording with the the DR-10L Pro.

Only two AAA batteries are required for hours of continuous recording.

Whether you’re recording people at a wedding reception, a busy convention or a lengthy ceremony, the DR-10L Pro is ready for service as long as you are. There’s no need to worry about changing batteries during recording: the DR-10L Pro personal recorder runs on just two AAA batteries for up to 24.5 hours*.

In addition, files are saved on the microSD card approximately every 20 seconds during recording to minimise the risk of data loss due to unexpected power cuts.

*Lithium batteries

Remote control for up to five recorders via Bluetooth using the DR-10L Pro CONNECT app.

With the optional AK-BT1 Bluetooth dongle, up to five DR-10L Pro recorders can be controlled wirelessly from iOS, iPadOS and Android devices using the free DR-10L Pro CONNECT app. The app allows videographers to check device status*, view the recorded waveforms in real time and create up to five presets. A preset can be applied to a single recorder or to all controlled units at once. You can also use the app to name devices for easy identification, for example “Bride”, “Groom”, and so on.

*Audio monitoring via app is not supported

Other features of DR-10L Pro CONNECT app:

  • Visual confirmation of input sound with waveform display
  • Easy management of multiple units with unique names and identification colour settings
  • Store metadata (project name, scene name, take number) in the recording file (BEXT, iXML)
  • Synchronise the unit’s clock with the time on your smartphone or tablet
Example of timecode distribution using three cameras, an Atomos Bluetooth distributor and three Tascam DR-10L Pro audio recorders.

With the optional AK-BT1 Bluetooth dongle, the DR-10L Pro is ready to wirelessly synchronise timecode with supported Atomos products. Timecode allows videographers to perfectly align audio with video, even when there is no audio on the camera.

Timecode is critical for videographers when dealing with multi-camera video shoots, saving valuable time in post-production.

The Tascam DR-10L Pro’s organic LED display is very small, but clearly legible.
