Audio Recorder

Exceptional recording,

automatic speech-to-text

The perfect audio recorder for easily capturing voice recordings including notes, interviews, and small meeting settings. Thanks to its excellent sound quality, long-lasting battery and large extendable memory, it is the ideal alternative to recording with your smartphone. Combined with Sembly’s AI Speech-to-Text Cloud Software, you can even turn your recordings into text quickly and accurately. Simply upload your files to Sembly when you are back at your computer and let it automatically convert your recordings to text for you.

Two high-quality stereo microphones for excellent sound quality

The two high-quality stereo microphones deliver crystal-clear sound quality when recording notes, ideas and thoughts on the go.

Stereo MP3 and PCM recording for clear playback and easy file sharing

Capture your recordings in stereo MP3 or PCM format. The popular MP3 file format allows you to play back your files virtually anywhere and simply share them with others. The PCM (WAV) format allows stereo recording of lossless, uncompressed sound in CD-like audio quality.

8 GB internal memory storage for extra-long recording hours

With the 8 GB of built-in memory, your recorder is able to capture multiple days of continuous recording.

No installation required for quick plug & play

The recorder requires no special installation. Simply plug your recorder into your PC or Mac and play back your files or transfer them to your computer right away.

Backlight display for easy file navigation in low-light situations

The large backlit display allows you to see all important file information clearly at a glance. This makes file navigation easier, even in lowlight situations.

Micro SD memory card slot for virtually unlimited recording

Virtually unlimited recording capacity thanks to a micro SD memory card slot supporting up to 32 GB of additional memory.

Automatically convert your recordings to text, up to three times faster than typing

Put an end to tedious typing and create text documents directly from recorded audio files. Using the Sembly Speech-to-Text Software is at least three times quicker than typing up the document yourself. Simply record your notes, interviews or meetings, upload them to Sembly, and receive a written document almost instantly.

Automatic meeting minutes with multi-speaker transcription for easy following up

If you want to record meetings, Sembly Speech-to-Text Software creates automatic meeting minutes, so you can focus on your conversation and not get distracted by having to take notes. Thanks to multi-speaker identification you can clearly identify who said what.

Easily share your voice or meeting recordings with colleagues, family or classmates

Sembly allows to save transcriptions on your computer in PDF or markdown format. You can easily share your voice recordings and transcripts with colleagues, family or classmates by simply sending them a link. For increased privacy, you can add a password to your link.
