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

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.
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.
Summary: 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.
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.
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.
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
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
