Equipped with a built-in microphone. Extra high quality external Mono (omni-directional and cardioid) 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-ML offers instant start-up, one button recording, automatic level control, internal loudspeaker, voice-operated recording and low cut filter.



The ARES-ML offers a miniature USB 2.0 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.
