Capture Premium Sound
The DM-620’s new “TRESMIC” 3 microphone system now allows you to capture a wider stereo sound, making your recordings that much better. The ultra high-quality sound — along with 4GB of built in memory and microSD card slot — and three recording formats allow you to record incredible audio.
What are the main features of the DM-620?
The DM-620 is a high-quality, high-capacity digital recorder loaded with handy and intuitive usability features as well as support software that can run on both PCs and Macs.
The recorder features a Tremic 3 microphone array with directional microphones for the left and right stereo channels and a center omni-directional microphone.
It can record in three audio formats: PCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation), MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio). In PCM mode, the microphone sensitivity levels can be set manually and the files that are created, which have a .WAV extension, can be split in the recorder.
This model has 4 GB of built-in flash memory and a card slot that holds one microSD or microSDHC card of up to 16 GB capacity (sold separately). Files can be transferred from the card to internal memory and vice-versa.
The DM-620 features Recording and Playback “scenes” – configuration templates – that make it easy to enable an array of preferred settings via a single menu selection. Five of the Recording scenes are pre-set with optimal settings for specific recording conditions; another three can be customized by the user. Five Playback scenes are available.
There are five folders for organizing recordings and separate folders for storing Podcasts, music files and audio content. The Music folder holds WMA or MP3 music files transferred from Windows Media Player® or iTunes®.
The ZOOM microphone incorporates DiMAGIC® Corporation’s DVM (DiMAGIC Virtual Microphone) technology for directional recording, and DiMAGIC’s Euphony psychoacoustic technology for enhanced playback in the recorder.
The DM-520 also includes accessibility features designed to help the visually impaired. The Voice Guide speaks aloud menu items as they are selected in any of 19 languages.¹ The recorder’s buttons feature ridges and grooves to make them more identifiable by touch.
After transferring the files to a computer via the bundled USB 2.0 cable, the included Olympus Sonority software can be used to manage, archive and edit PCM and WMA files made with the recorder on Windows and Mac platforms. (The ability to edit MP3 files is available at additional cost via the Olympus Sonority Plus upgrade.) The software also enables subscription to and download from podcast URLs. The podcasts can be transferred to the recorder’s Podcast folder for playback at the user’s convenience.
The bundled NiMH batteries can be charged in the unit while it is plugged into a computer’s USB port, so you can keep them conveniently topped off while you work with your files.
