Overview

Superb hand-held digital recorder with quality microphones and sophisticated I/O.

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.
