About the Olympus LS-100

The Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track PCM Recorder features high-quality 96kHz / 24-Bit Linear PCM recording, which captures every nuance of every note and syllable with a rich, resonant quality. With this level of digital recording, the LS-100 gives you the ability to make truly colorful, dynamic recordings almost anywhere. It also supports 44.1kHz / 16-Bit Linear PCM and MP3 format as well. MP3 recording is ideal for times when convenience and quantity are more important than quality. The LS-100 is equipped with 4GB of internal Flash memory. It also offers external memory with an SD card slot that supports cards all the way up to a capacity of 64GB.

The LS-100's dual 90 Deg. directional stereo condenser microphones have a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz, which allows them to capture a wide range of audio from the lowest audible bass frequencies to the highest audible treble frequencies. Olympus used an innovative system when designing these mics, which ensures that the entire frequency range of human hearing is captured with exceptional clarity. This design also supports a maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of up to 140dB, which means you'll be able to clearly record even the loudest live performances. Plus, the LS-100's integrated stereo condenser microphones have independent left and right recording level dials, so you'll be able to maintain optimum balance, as well as make adjustments on the fly.

Designed with pro musicians in mind, the LS-100 features 24V / 48V Phantom Power for condenser mics, ribbon mics, etc. The built-in instrumentation amplifier cuts slight noise and amplifies signals as well. This allows the use of much longer cables. Plus, with integrated left and right stereo XLR / 1/4" Phone combo jacks, it's easy to connect external mics for recording. This way, you're not limited to using just the built-in stereo condenser mics. Another sound minimizing feature is the separate audio and system circuit boards - each with their own power supply. Separate circuitry helps maintain a high signal-to-noise ratio and it eliminates cross-channel interference as well. This ensures clear signal transmission.

Another highlight of the LS-100 is its ability to do multi-track recording and overdubbing. On the LS-100, up to 999 tracks can be recorded using the fixed 44.1kHz / 16-Bit format for CD writing. Plus, up to eight tracks can be edited simultaneously. Overdubbing lets you make a recording and then go back later to add additional parts over the original recordings. It can be used by musicians to add a supplementary recorded sound to a previously recorded performance or by vocalists to sing harmonies with themselves. The LS-100 also features functions for file editing, pre-recording, metronome, tuner, Lissajous for chords, MP3 converting, CD writing and Play Sync recording. It has hi/med/lo microphone sensitivity switches and a 100Hz / 300Hz lowcut filter.

The LS-100 is equipped with Voice Sync and Voice Guidance as well. Voice Sync is the Olympus technology for voice activated recording, which is one of those extra benefits that saves time and energy. Voice Guidance provides voice feedback for actions, which allows the user to operate the LS-100 without looking at the backlit LCD display. For added convenience, the recorder is also equipped with a headphone jack, a 3.5 mm mic / audio line-input and an integrated speaker.

The 480mW round dynamic speaker allows you to listen back instantly after making a recording. If you're a professional musician, then the benefits of the LS-100 are obvious. However, this recorder was also designed for high-quality podcasting. It also works great for journalists who prefer to listen back to ultra-clear recordings after an interview. It can even be used to build soundscapes, capture ambient noise, or even for birding and nature enthusiasts who want to record wildlife with lifelike clarity.
