USB Flash Voice Recorder Time & Date Stick
A professional, easy-to-use USB Flash Stick Voice Recorder with superb sound recording quality. You can confidently use this body-worn audio recorder to gather meaningful conversations and memos without drawing attention. The USB Flash Stick has two recording modes: manual and voice activation, and a built-in microphone capable of picking up audio at 25 feet. Three new features include a time and date stamp, adjustable sound quality, and super voice activation (SVOS) level setting. The USB Flash Stick is a stunning and reliable little recorder that will not disappoint.
USB Flash Stick Voice Recorder; with 25 Days Standby and Time Date Stamp Recording
Hands down, this is one of the better digital voice recorders on the market today. This little marvel oozes quality and performance and encompasses everything you need in a professional but easy-to-use audio recording device.
To the naked eye, the USB Flash Voice Recorder can be displayed and used as a typical 8 GB Mass Storage Device for holding important documents, spreadsheets, files, photos etc; however, the subtle recording mechanism enables the sensitive microphone to capture events as a surveillance voice recorder. The in-built AGC (automatic gain control) adjusts the voice level to accommodate close-up recording and a realistic recording distance of 25 feet without audio distortion.
In our tests using a Mac computer with a software program called 'Boom' installed from the App Store, the speakers could pick up audio some 30 feet from where the device had been placed.
TIME AND DATE STAMP
A much sought-after functionality is to know precisely when each audio file was created. This can help to resolve disputes by providing an accurate timeframe or just for your memory recap when playing audio files.
Note: Syncing the time and date to the USB Flash Stick can only be done using a Windows computer with the supplied easy-to-use software.
VOICE ACTIVATION AND MANUAL RECORDING MODES
At the flick of a switch, you can selectively choose your preferred recording mode:
- Voice Activation Recording - place the USB flash stick within the room or vehicle environment to cover a lengthy 25-day (600 hours) standby time. Realistically, the USB can be placed in a quiet environment for several weeks before an event you must capture.
- Manual Recording - carry the USB flash stick as a body-worn recorder to capture audio 'on the fly' for a total start/stop recording time of 24 hours.
The USB Stick can withstand close visual examination, and for peace of mind, there are no LEDs, noises, sounds or moving parts during recording.
SOUND QUALITY SETTING
The feature allows you to adjust the audio quality between HQ (high quality) and XHQ (extra high quality). The lower setting (HQ) will draw less power consumption when recording and is best suited to smaller rooms and confined areas like vehicles. The higher XHQ setting is best suited to recording in larger rooms. This feature can only be adjusted with a Windows computer's supplied software.
SVOS LEVEL SETTING
The feature allows you to adjust the microphone sensitivity. For example: lowering the sensitivity reduces the microphone's capability to detect sounds like a cough, passing traffic or a door creaking. Increasing the sensitivity heightens the microphone's capability to trigger recording.
COMPUTER-POWERED FOR LONG RECORDING TIMES
When connected and powered by a computer, the recording time can be substantially increased from 24 hours using its internal battery to 288 hours (until its 8 GB memory is reached). While connected to a computer, the USB Stick is not recognised as a connected device to persons using the computer. For example, when plugged into the rear of a desktop would not draw attention or show as being a connected device.
FANTASTIC AUDIO SOUND
Audio files are recorded and stored in MP3 encoding format @ 64 KBPS for enhanced and more apparent sound quality.
INVISIBLE RECORDING MECHANISM
We appreciate that gathering audio evidence is essential in some circumstances, and some people can be observant. The USB Flash Stick has a subtle recording mechanism for peace of mind.
COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS AND MAC
Mac users can recharge and playback audio files. Windows users can also set the time and date and adjust the microphone sensitivity and SVOS level setting.
Carry this slimline USB Flash Stick about your person, in your outside shirt/blouse pocket or under light clothing, or casually leave the device behind in a room or vehicle. Capture audio of general meetings or for gathering evidence to support ongoing disputes etc.
CAN I DISPLAY THE USB STICK AS A NORMAL STORAGE DEVICE?
Yes. Externally the USB Stick looks completely normal and can be used as a fully functional mass storage device to hold your files, documents, images etc.
HOW EASY IS IT TO START/STOP AUDIO RECORDING?
The top of the USB stick conceals the recording mechanism as part of the lanyard, which can be moved left or right depending on the recording mode you wish to apply.
I NEED TO KNOW THE TIME AND DATE. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
Yes. This USB device supports a time and date function for providing concrete evidential purposes if required. The time and date procedure can only be set on a Windows computer. The audio and USB charging can be played on any computer (Windows or Mac).
HOW DO I ACCESS THE SETTINGS TO FINE-TUNE THE AUDIO AND SVOS SETTING?
The USB Stick has a user-friendly software interface with selectable options and is compatible with Windows computers. Open the software to display the time and date, plus the microphone and SVOS settings.
HOW MANY CONTINUOUS HOURS CAN THE USB STICK RECORD FOR?
A total of 24 hours (per charge) from the device's internal battery is a fantastic duration.
WHAT IF I WANT TO RECORD FOR LONGER THAN 24 HOURS?
If you connect the USB stick to your computer and then activate recording, the USB stick obtains its power through the computer for the full duration of its 8 GB storage capacity. This means a total recording time (continuous or voice-activated) of 288 hours in HQ and 144 hours in XHQ.
IN VOICE ACTIVATION MODE, HOW LONG IS THE STANDBY TIME?
The USB can remain active and wait to record for up to 25 days (600 hours!) That is an outstanding length of time. Likewise, as per the question above, if the USB is connected to a computer, it can remain constantly powered.
HOW GOOD IS THE AUDIO RECORDING QUALITY?
Outstanding @ 64KBPS, it is easily among the finest recorders for audio quality and ease of use. You will be pleasantly surprised by just how clear the recordings are and the range the microphone can pick up.
WHAT AUDIO FORMAT ARE THE FILES CREATED IN?
Recordings are stored in MP3 format supported by many different audio players.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOICE ACTIVATION AND MANUAL RECORDING?
When you need to capture audio 'on the fly', flick the switch, and the device will record until you flick the switch back again. If you need to record audio when you are absent from a room or vehicle or for long standby periods, flick the switch the other way and activate the voice detection mode.
ARE THERE ANY VISIBLE LEDS OR NOISES WHEN RECORDING?
ARE RECORDINGS PASSWORD PROTECTED?
HOW DO I PLAY BACK THE AUDIO RECORDINGS?
Plug the USB stick into your computer (Windows or Mac) to access the 'Record' folder containing the recorded audio files. No special software is required to play the audio.
