  • High-Quality Microphone System: New and improved microphone system reduces extraneous sounds such as wind or machine noise for high quality sound recording.
  • Ergonomic Design: Ergonomic design and convenient button location enables effortless single-handed control without ever having to visually check the placement of function buttons.
  • 2 Programmable Buttons: DR-1000 has two programmable buttons (A, B). All button functions are easily customizable to suit a particular preference or any recording environment.
  • 360-Degree Mouse-Pointing Sensor: The 360-degree mouse-pointing sensor provides simple, comfortable control ranging from fine to rapid movements and is highly durable for a virtually maintenance-free performance every time.
  • USB Speaker & Microphone:  Can be used as a USB microphone or USB speaker without installing a specialty driver. In addition, a powerful built-in speaker provides hi-fidelity acoustic playback.
  • Remote Control:  Can be used as a remote control for the DSS Player not only for direct recording, but also when editing recorded files on a PC.
  • Save Recording in DSS Format: DR-1000 can save a recording as a file on a PC in DSS (Digital Speech Standard) format.
  • 2 Recording Modes: Two recording modes, SP (Standard Playback) mode or LP (Long Playback) mode.
  • Adjustable Microphone Sensor Quality:  Microphone sensor quality can be altered to better suit recording conditions and environment.
  • Insert and Overwrite on Existing Recordings: Take advantage of the ability to insert and overwrite on an existing recording file.
  • Index Marks: Up to 16 index marks can be set in a file.
  • System Sounds: System Sounds (beep) are available to alert you to button operations or warn you of errors. They can be turned on or off according to your preference.
  • Professional Grade USB Cable:  Professional Grade USB Cable is 10x more durable (more than 20,000 operations in an Olympus durability test) than a regular USB cable.
  • Register an ID:  Register an ID directly in the DR-1000 and have it become part of the created recording file's naming convention for quick and easy retrieval.
  • High-Sensitivity Microphones:  DR-1000 uses 10mm, highly sensitive, built-in omni directional microphones. The microphone sensitivity can be easily adjusted with the DSS Player to suit the purpose of use.
  • Firmware Updates: DR-1000 firmware can be easily updated to provide additional features or product enhancement.
  • Enhanced Button Functionality: In addition to the 2 programmable buttons, further functionality can be supported by combining any button on the DR-1000 with the Shift or Ctrl key on your computer's keyboard. This function is supported by the included DSS Player software.
