Pro recording quality in the palm
of your hand.
Whether you're a radio journalist, musician, sound effects engineer or folklorist, the award-winning Sony PCM-M10 recorder excels at capturing high-quality audio. Though it fits in a pocket or the palm of your hand, this professional recorder boasts full-sized performance thanks to a host of powerful features. Like a pair of built-in mics, digital pitch and playback key control, cross-memory recording and more. Paired with durable construction and long-lasting battery life, you'll capture excellent sound quality with complete confidence, whether in the field or in the studio.
Customize Your Recordings
The PCM-M10 recorder goes beyond CD quality for sound that is remarkably transparent, clean and natural. Fine-tune your recordings with a variety of available sampling frequencies—including 22.05, 44.1, 48 and even 96 kHz—and choose from the dynamic range of 16 or 24-bit quantizing. Recording formats include uncompressed WAV or compressed MP3 at data rates from 64 to 320 kbps.
Store Hours of Audio
Capture up to six hours of uncompressed CD-quality audio (44.1 kHz sampling at 16-bit depth) thanks to the 4GB internal flash memory. Compression extends the recording time to over 134 hours (MP3 at 64 kbps). For more storage, a memory card slot that accepts Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) and microSD media cards (sold separately) extends your capacity even further.
Small Size, Big Performance
The PCM-M10 recorder fits in your pocket yet packs a multitude of high-performance features: two built-in Sony electret condenser microphones for superb sound quality, a five-second pre-record buffer, a USB port for easy uploads/downloads and more. Plus, the recorder comes with Sound Forge® Audio Studio LE software with everything you need to edit and master pro-quality audio on your home computer.
A Heritage of Excellent Audio
Audio recording is in our DNA. Over 60 years ago, one of Sony's most successful products was a reel-to-reel audio tape recorder. In recent years, we've created critically acclaimed solid-state PCM recorders, including the award-winning PCM-D50. The PCM-M10 recorder draws upon this longstanding heritage of incredible Sony audio quality to deliver much of the same performance at a great value.
Digital Pitch and Key Control
In the analog world, pitch and playback speed are inextricably linked. With the PCM-M10 recorder, they're independent, allowing for greater control over your audio. Use the digital pitch control to vary playback speed without changing the pitch. Use the playback key control to vary the pitch—an especially helpful feature for musicians who want to accompany a recorded song in a higher or lower key.
Ultra Informative Display
Stay informed as you record with a generous, easy-to-read LCD display that shows level meters, peak level in dB, elapsed time, remaining battery, sampling frequency, quantization word length and more. During setup and file operations, the display shows intuitive menus you can navigate with ease.
