Audio Recorder

What is in the equipment kit and how to borrow.

The Kit

Located in the Tech Table, the Audio Recorder Kit can be checked out at the Service Center.

Our Audio Recorder kit is the middle ground in audio recording. The kit can be taken on the move to record the best outdoor adventures, or used attached directly to the user's computer. The Recorder has 4 different audio settings for different scenarios, and a headset and microphone port if required. Battery operated with batteries provided upon checkout. 

Alternatives: The Voice Recorder is ideal for intimate voice recording like for class speaking or interviews, and can be taken on the move. The Microphone Kit must be attached to a computer to function but is a high quality audio capture device for podcast, audiobook, or other like-minded audio scenarios.
