The Olympus LS-100 is ideal for musicians who want to capture ideas, write music, create demos, rehearse, and record live shows. It's easy to use and is loaded with useful features including an onboard tuner, metronome and lissajous function (for achieving optimum phase alignment when using external micrphones). Input attenuation makes it ideal for everything from high decibel rock shows to field recording of birdsongs, babbling brooks, and other quiet signals. It even has convenient multi-tracking capabilities.

The LS-100 features superb quality 90-degree directional, stereo condenser microphones that support up to 140 dB of sound pressure. You'll have all the range you need to record the loudest live performances with minimal clipping, or the quietest acoustic performance. Independent left and right recording levels help you maintain balance and make adjustments on the fly. Two XLR/quarter-inch hybrid inputs let you connect microphones, guitars or other line-output sources. Noise is balanced on both the positive and negative side of the input to achieve a true, clear signal. Provides 48V-24V of phantom power to run condensor microphones or other devices.

A Stand-Alone Stand-Out!!

By Daryl McClendon

from Harlem, New York

Comments about Olympus LS-100 Linear PCM Recorder:

Hey, everybody: I wanna tell you how much of a no-risk purchase this is. Whether you record things for fun or record things for your profession, this beast slays all other animals. The battery life is superb; the instructions are clear; you have the ability to pause and resume while recording; and, this product does not misrepresent what it actually does. I compose music and lyrics and have formal training for classical, jazz, fusion, alternative and country; I do dictations that are crystal clear for use in my medical practice and jive nicely with dictation software; and, I play several instruments: Soprano, baritone and alto saxes; electronic violin; guitar; piano and keys; and, I also sing. To be honest, I don't notice any delay on monitoring that wouldn't be experienced in a live setting; and, the CD burner works well, so long as you don't use one that has no external power source. I had an old HP drive that came with a netbook I bought years ago; and that was a fail; but, if you get a CD burner with its own external power source, this is a one-person recording studio. BUY IT- and be really pleased with what you have, because firmware updates are on the way, and I know it'll make this product even better than what it is. And hey: This is the Internet Age- research your purchases before you buy them so that there are no surprises or disappointments. I had expectations for this device as a stand-alone device for the majority of what I would do in a studio without being tethered to my computer for most tasks and this thing DOES. THEM. WELL.
