Digital MP3 Recorder-Player with Built-In AM/FM Radio
One of the best MP3 digital recorders with onboard AM/FM radio just got better! The CC Witness Plus includes several new features like stereo microphones, CD quality (WAV) recording, and a Mini USB jack, making it a "Plus". You can listen to rich, full audio using earphones or the built-in stereo speakers.
Recording with the Plus
Whether it's from a radio, computer or home stereo, the CC Witness Plus will record high-quality audio from your device. Just plug in the 1/8" input cable and press the record button. Recording your own music files is simple and saves money compared to buying individual songs. You can even detect song breaks and create individual recording tracks like a CD. You can then skip to the next song when you playback your music files.
The CC Witness Plus now has One-Touch Recording. Simply press and hold the record button to get 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours of instant recording. You can record using the built-in microphones or from the line-in using the included 1/8" stereo line-in cable.
If you are a talk radio fan, then you may love the 20 independent recording timers. Timers allow you to record all your favorite shows so you can listen at a more convenient time. You can also use the timers to eliminate the commercials normally found at the top and bottom of the hour.
With the built-in stereo microphones, you can record meetings, memos or even a live concert. The CC Witness Plus can accept an external mono or stereo microphone for even better voice recording quality.
Radio on the Go
For mobile use, most new cars have an 1/8" auxiliary MP3 jack or mini-USB jack. You can plug the patch cord directly from your MP3 jack or mini-USB into the Witness and then use the Witness to listen to an almost unlimited audio library you create.
The CC Witness Plus is an excellent portable travel companion because of its small size and capabilities. AM and FM radio reception is very good for a pocket radio and there are 10 easy presets per band to access your stations quickly. For better AM reception, there is an option for disabling the display screen reducing any possible interference. For best FM reception, the CC Witness Plus uses your headphones or an included wire as an external antenna. FM mono can also be enabled to improve weak FM stations and reduce automatic stereo switching sound.
You can maximize your recording time for voice by adjusting the audio quality to a lower speed of 32 kbps (kilobits per second). When great audio quality is necessary, you can set it to record at up to CD Quality at 1411 kbps. There are six selectable levels of audio quality. The CC Witness Plus comes with 2GB of onboard memory which stores up to 2000 audio files or up to 140 hours of recordings at 32 kbps.
Using an optional SD memory card will give you more recording time and is a great way to collect hard copies of your favorite programs. An SD card can store more content than a CD or cassette tape. We recommend a maximum size 4GB Sandisk brand SD card for stability of operation. Larger cards may work with proper formatting. If you have success with a brand of larger size SD card please let us know.
Edit makes perfect
Copy, chop, erase, or rename your files with the powerful editing features of the CC Witness Plus. File names and folder structure can be changed and edited through your computer also.
From Witness to Computer and Back
Transfer your files from the CC Witness Plus to a Computer using a USB cable. With a computer you can listen, store, or upload your files over the internet. If you already have a collection of MP3, WAV, or WMA files on your computer, then transfer them to the Witness for your playback enjoyment.
