Summary: I didn't expect it to work as well as it did. I'm traveling in Mexico and, before leaving, I made it a last minute purchase intending to record live music wherever I might find it. It's easier to use than I might have imagined but doesn't seem to have separate channel recording capability. Still, for a pocket size device, it does a more than adequate to good job of recording music in a variety of settings from street-side to opera hall or open arena concert.
Summary: I purchased the LS-10 mainly for recording my bands rehearsal sessions for an original project. The recorder is very easy to use and the instruction manual is very clear to understand. I did have a tuff time downloading the data to my lap top thought. I did finally get it to work and I could make copies to CD's but the initial process was tedious and frustrating until it worked for me.
Summary: A wonderful product for those who like quality in sound recording. Functionally it is great product that I purchased from Amazon.com. My only comment is that as an older consumer I have trouble reading the menu screen because at a close range my eyes are not as good as people younger than me. I will be 70 this year and my vision is better than many half my age except when I try to read close I have some blurring even with my prescription glasses.
Summary: I am very pleased with the LS-10 I purchased several weeks ago. I use it primarily to record for a local radio show that I am hosting and producing ([...]). I am definitely a novice when it comes to digital recording equipment, digital editing, and radio shows! But I've been able to learn enough about the LS-10 to get it to do what I need. I record the interview and message portion of the show using the built in mics on the LS-10.
Summary: Having just received this unit 2 weeks ago, I have been finding it to be a very handy little device for my music recordings. I bought this unit mainly for scratch recording my acoustic guitar sessions at home, and recording new music ideas "on the spot"....I should have bought one of these years ago! The Olympus LS-10 is very easy to use, user friendly menus, and one touch recording..
Summary: Wow. What great craftsmanship. The build is solid, no wiggly stupid parts or knobs. Voice recording is as good as my Huge Podcast mic. This is heck of a podcast tool. Room recording reflects presence in the room. The echos or non echos are heard. Very strange at first, but truly accurate. Ive found the "Natural" setting works best for warm quality sound. Love the included accessories and - good paper manual. Not just a PDF on a CD.
