OMNICRON "VLR" recorders are professional analog voice loggers designed
to provide you with complete documentation of your important telephone conversations,
two-way radio messages, or dictation. They have special features which allow virtually
unlimited use in a wide range of applications, with top performance and minimal
activation circuitry expands the recording time by automatically stopping the recorder
between conversations. Model VLR-1 runs at the standard cassette speed allowing you to
record and playback tapes which are compatible with recorders that do not have slow speed
Advanced slow speed
drive circuits in the VLR-4 and VLR-8 recorders expand the recording time even further to
provide 8 or 16 hours of solid talk time on each cassette tape. The VLR-4 provides four
times the unattended recording and playback time. It packs 8 hours of conversation on each
MLC-120 cassette tape. The super slow speed VLR-8 runs at 1/8 speed for 16 hours per tape
with little loss of fidelity (8 hours per side with an MLC-120 cassette).
VLR recorders which
have the "CT" Clock Track option (VLR-1CT, VLR-4CT, and VLR-8CT) are designed
for use with the Omnicron TCC-14 Talking Clock/Calendar. They have a second track for
recording the verbal time and date announcements provided by the clock. When playing back
the recorded conversations, simply switch to the Time Track and you will know exactly when
the recording was made. One Talking Clock can provide time and date announcements for over
