Equipped with a built-in microphone, it is also delivered with an external clip-on stereo microphone. Extra high quality external Mono (omni-directional) and Stereo (Cardioid) clip on microphones are available as additional accessories. A traditional external microphone can also be used thanks to the XLR input cable supplied with the unit. Designed for radio applications, the ARES-M offers instant start-up, one button recording, automatic level control, internal loudspeaker, voice-operated recording, low cut filter and onboard graphic audio editor.



The portion to be edited is shown in reverse video, and the IN and OUT points can be trimmed to locate the exact cut point. The position of each point is clearly indicated thus simple cut editing in-the-field is very easy.

The editor is totally non-destructive, meaning that the original material remains unchanged.

The ARES-M offers a miniature USB port. Through this connection, the internal memory appears on the “desktop” as a mass storage device (external drive) of the PC / MAC and requires NO additional software or drivers.
