And voice changer function allows you to change the pitch of a voice. You can even adjust the recording level at will based on the volume of the recording subject to maximize the use of dynamic range.

Just plug the recorder right into your computer for fast downloads – no cables needed. The USB also helps charge your battery at the same time. The microSD slot makes connection with PC’s even more convenient.
