Awesome Multi-Track Recording

Brandon, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Great multi-track recorder that supports up to 8 tracks overdub on a single project file. Perfect for musicians as a pocket recording studio. Allows you to lay down guitars, keys, drums, vocals, backups/harmonies as separate tracks within a project and overdub each while monitoring. Once the project is finished, you can mix down to a single file or export the project folder with individual instrument tracks to your computer for mixing.

An Efficient, Configurable and Notably Clear-Sounding Recorder

Robongo Malomar, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: This little device has some astoundingly clean preamps, playing well with a wide variety of external microphones (thanks to its XLR inputs with phantom power). Its signal:noise ratio is very high overall, and the internal microphones are not to be overlooked either, as they also produce very clear, realistic sounding recordings.

Needs little cosmetic improvement

13 September 2012
  • Excerpt: helloAlthough it is said that when connected to mains the recorder will functions normally, because only pins 1and 4 are connected, it does not ! Remote Storage appears on the screen and the recorder is useless until I unplug it … I bought it with plans to use it like this and now I cannot work as planned because advertised features dont really meet the reallity.

DDMDO, Amazon

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.

LS-100 Problems

Robert J. Abend, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: I am using the Olympus LS-100 audio recorder with a 64GB SDXC card. When I use internal LS-100 memory everything is fine. When I record files to the SD card the wrong file "last modified date" shows up when viewing the LS-100 file via USB on my computer. If I copy the file from the LS-100 SD card to my computer, the wrong date remains. The correct date is set on the LS-100 and on my computer.

Tips & Tricks

21 June 2012
  • Summary: I originally had an issue with latency on the multitrack side, needing to overcome this issue, I decided to change the record rate to 16bit to see if this would correct the latency issue and suprisingly it did. I made severval recordings at this rate and they seemed perfectly in sync. Later that evening I decided to switch back to 24bit only as a test. The 24bit rate now appear to be syncing with my original playback tracks.

Loaded with features

Sound Engineer, B&H Photo
19 June 2012
  • Excerpt: This LS-100 is loaded with features and is easy to use from the menu to the professorial XLR mic inputs and easy to read display. But I found that the built in Stereo microphones to deliver seam to be lacking in the quality that I was looking for they sounded rather thin and hollow.
  • Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Professional Features, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Quality Sound

Perfect indoor recorder

Steve, B&H Photo
4 June 2012
  • Excerpt: This device creates high quality recordings, even when the music is REALLY loud. Ideal for recording loud (Rock, Jazz) concerts. I was recording a concert the other day and when my SLR with an external stereo mic picked up distorted sound, LS-100 still gave me a perfect, non distorted result. The only inconvenient thing I have faced with so far was that one time I used it in an outside recording session in some light wind.
  • Pros: Compact Design, High Dynamic Range, High Quality Sound, Long Battery Life, Reliable
