Record with clarity

Connect to your PC
The Olympus VN-541 PC features a microUSB port which lets you connect your voice recorder to a PC or Mac. You can then transfer the audio stored to your home computer system to help you view and organise files stored on the recorders internal memory.

In answer to Dave 3 months ago, you said you couldn't guarantee full compatibility for recording from a mixer desk. Can you be more specific please, or recommend a more suitable recorder?

Asked by: Jonathan
This can record voices/sounds from a mixer desk , and can be connected to a mic with a 3.5mm jack connection for better clearer sound.
