Never miss a recording opportunity with One-Touch Recording

The new sleek design of the VP-10 allows you to capture conversations naturally, even while having the recorder in your pocket.

This innovative recorder features new technologies optimum for business use, to achieve high-quality recording.

High-quality stereo recording in all environments

In order to securely capture every sound andvoice, the recorder features Omni-directional stereo microphones which capture sound from all directions, even when recording from your pocket.

The recorder has low noise, high quality microphones in its compact slim body.


"Anti-Rustle" filter reduces surface friction while recording in your pocket

Olympus’ unique “Anti-Rustle” filter technology identifies the difference between voice and rustling sound by its characteristics, and effectively suppresses the noise only.

This removes the rustling noise generated when operating the recorder from in your pocket, to achieve a low-noise, clear sound.

Low-cut filter eliminates extraneous noise

During recording, the low-cut filter can be used to cut the sound at frequencies of 300 Hz and lower, typical examples of this being the sound of air conditionersor projector fans.

This filter also proves effective when recording outside to minimise noise from wind.

Cutting the lower frequency during recording ensures natural sounding recordings without distortion during playback.

The low-cut filter can be turned ON or OFF asrequired, depending on your recording environment.


Compatible with various recording formats

Select from three recording formats: the high-quality unsuppressed Linear PCM format (22.05kHz); the versatile MP3 format, which is used by both Windows and Mac users; or WMA format, which has good sound quality even at alower bit rate.

An impressive array of playback functions

The VP-10 is equipped with improved noise cancellation technology to strongly cut out background noisefrom recorded voice, and two new Playback Scene modes.

"Transcription" mode is convenient for when you want to create minutes or notes from your meeting recordings, and the "Language Study" mode is helpful when learning a foreign language.

Enjoy crisp, clear playback with Noise Cancellation

The world's top noise cancellation technology is even more powerful, strongly cutting out background noise recorded with voice.

With the new algorithm, this function provides more natural voice reproduction while boasting improved noise exclusion.

* Noise exclusion ratio has been tested by Olympus.

* Playback speed cannot be changed when using the noise cancellation function.

Improved Voice Balancer

When a recording contains multiple speakers, the Voice Balancer feature makes softer voices louder, whilekeeping louder voices below a given level, ensuring that playback is clear and consistent.

This comes in handy when recording sound sources from multiple positions, such as when in a large meeting or conference.

Since the voice filter operates simultaneously,the prominent noise produced when amplifying small sounds isreduced.

By eliminating the low and high frequency ranges of a recording, the speaker’s voice is even further enhanced.

Possible use of the Voice Balancer

Create meeting minutes efficiently with "Transcription" mode

"Transcription" mode is convenient when you want to create minutes from your meeting recordings.

While transcribing, it is necessary to frequently repeat play and stop to check the content.

As such, when resuming playback, the recorderwill automatically playback from 3 seconds before playback was stopped, so that you can easily review the content you need.

The fast forward function is set to a preset 2.0x speed so that you can conveniently skip the silences inyour recording.

Furthermore, the Voice Balancer helps to normalise audio level when recording speakers with differentvolume levels in a meeting.


“Language Study” mode convenient for learning foreign languages

“Language Study” mode is helpful for when you want to learn a foreign language.

To repeatedly review the content of your recording, reverse skip is preset to 3 seconds.

Thanks to this function, it is not necessary to hold down the reverse button, as a simple push will reverse for 3 seconds.

Furthermore, the ability to conveniently skip through the recording enhances learning efficiency.

Forward skip is preset to 10 seconds while fast forward is preset to 2.0x for ideal playback listening.

Convenient Fast or Slow Playback

With fast or slow playback, the speed change is processed digitally, thus the pitch is not alteredresulting in the voice remaining as recorded.

The playback speed can be adjusted between a range of ×0.5 (slowest) and ×2 (fastest).

The ability to change the playback speed isparticularly useful when you want to quickly check meeting recordings, or when recordings need to be listened to repeatedly such as with language study.

The playback speed settings are retained even when the recorder power is off, making it convenient toresume.

Usability

The recorder has many features for ease-of-use, such as "One-Touch Recording" that silently and quickly activates recording, and "Pocket" mode which is effective for recording a wide range of voices from your pocket.

Simple, instant operation with "One-Touch Recording"

Simply slide down the REC switch – thevoice recorder instantly starts recording even when the power is off. The switch is located on the top of the recorder, which is convenient when recording from your shirtpocket. You can blindly operate the VP-10 voice recorder so that you never miss a conversation again.


Direct USB connection without a cable

The body of the VP-10 includes a built-in USB connector to let you connect directly to a computer merely by removing the cover.

Not only can you easily save and share your recordings via your computer without the need for cable or software, you can also recharge the unit from the PC withouthaving to remove the batteries from the device.

The recorder can also be used as a USB memorydevice.


Five recording scene modes, including "Pocket" mode

At a simple selection from the menu, you can chooseoptimum recording settings according to specific scenes.

Pocket mode is effective for recording a wide rangeof voices when the device is in your pocket.

With Dictation, Conference, Meeting or DNS modes, you can easily capture fail-proof, high-quality recordings.

File divide function

The File Divide function is useful when you want tomanage your recordings in a separate file.

It is also handy if you would like to downsize the file before sending it via e-mail. (Only with Linear PCM andMP3 format files.)

Convenient clip attachment
