Other Useful Functions

Direct PC connection for convenient recording data storage

The VN-741PC can connect directly to a computer via the built-in USB connector. This function allows data to be exchanged with a PC without having to use a cable or special software. This makes it possible to save data anytime, anywhere without the need to bring along a USB cable.

Long battery life you can rely when out and about

Thanks to the development of low power consumption circuits, the VN-741PC is able to reach up to 110 hours of recording. The long battery life provides peace of mind for beginners.

Convenient Fast or Slow Playback

With fast or slow playback, the speed change is processed digitally, thus the pitch is not altered resulting in the voice remaining as recorded. The playback speed can be adjusted between a range of ×0.5 (slowest) and ×2 (fastest). The ability to change the playback speed is particularly useful when you want to quickly check meeting recordings, or when recordings need to be listened to repeatedly such as with language study. The playback speed settings are retained even when the recorder power is off, making it convenient to resume.


The Voice Control Voice Actuator (VCVA) function starts recording automatically upon detection of a voice louder than a preset voice start level, and pauses recording automatically whenever the voice volume decreases. VCVA reduces file size by automatically cutting out parts of a recording where there is no recorded sound (such as long silences during meetings).
