A -10 dB pad is a switch or knob that lowers the level of an incoming signal (such as a microphone) before it reaches the rest of the circuitry. If you are recording something very loud (such as a guitar amp) and the signal is overpowering your recorder, you would select the -10 dB pad. This will lower the volume of the microphone, making the input signal more manageable.
