Using your Digital Voice Recorder
Things to check before using your digital voice recorder:
- Battery Level – Make sure you have enough before you start
- Data – Do you have enough storage space for your recordings?
- Microphone? – Are you going to be using a microphone? If so does that have batteries?
Keep it simple! Turn the recorder on via the power button slider. Make sure you have it pointing the right direction to record what you want. Press the record button. If your worried about accidentally hitting any buttons, lock your recorder with the button slider.
Once you’re done, take it off hold/lock by sliding the button slider, and press the square stop button. Then the file automatically saves and your ready for your next recording. It is fairly straight forward and easy to use. With the Sony ICD Digital Voice Recorders, there are many different folders to organize your files in.
To listen to something you recorded, you can play it back either through the built in speaker, or through headphones that you connect to the digital voice recorder.
Once you get to your computer, the files can easily be moved and downloaded via USB cable. Deleting files can by done through your computer, or on the actual digital voice recorder itself.
As a second means of recording audio, or even your primary way of recording audio, a digital voice recorder may be something you want to try. It has many positives but also comes with some negatives. The negatives really don’t have to do with the digital voice recorder its self, they really only apply if you’re actively out recording video. For the price, its a cheap solution to improving your audio!
