Summary: As the title indicates ,so it is. I was never able to find out because I could not Master all the steps, too complex for my use....SO i gave it to a young person that was into the technology and he is very happy.
Summary: This unit is a piece of JUNK, DO NOT BUY! The first one I bought had a broken input jack, one channel didn't work right out of the box, then the replacement they sent me died within 6 months, the unit freezes when the touch screen is taped or if the thing is nudged. These are very cheap, poor quality products.
Summary: I bought this recorder based solely on the great reviews. Don't believe them. I sent this back the next day. The microphones pick up ALL and ANY background noise, even if you turn the sensitivity way down so you cannot even hear what you are recording. I can record in the same space with a standard cheap mic into my computer and hear NO background noise but this picks up everything you don't want.
Summary: I got the Xacti ICR-XPS01 at a brick and mortar store for more than selling at Amazon now. Even at that price it was a great little recorder. I use it for DSLR audio rather than the built in audio of the camera. Pro -Good battery life -Record as well as play EQ -Clear sound recording with good channel separation -UI with light up buttons works great in the dark -Monitoring via headphones while recording -Charges via USB while you copy files to Mac -Cheap Con -No XLR...
Good Sensitivity, monitoring, and level adjustment
20 August 2011
Summary: I've used this for about 6 months, I'm happy with its features. Good battery life, mp3 recordings sound very good. Added a 8GB MicroSD card and there is a lot of room left still. Lots of features built-in, mic sensitivity is good, auto and manual level adjust, headphone jack is good for monitoring, 5 band EQ. Touch controls are good, I guess they're there so that you don't add extra noise to your recording.
Summary: OK, I'm suitably impressed! We create hundreds of professional videos and recordings each year for my business and we need lightweight, portable "in the field" recording devices. I've tried a bunch of different recorders and I'm counting 5 different brands sitting in front of me on my desk right now.
Summary: The thing isn't quite as user friendly as everyone else would have you believe...however: It records with amazing clarity. I've used it to do several live recordings of bands practicing with amazing results. Everyone who's heard the results have been blown away. Battery life is good as well. The 1/4 input is great for adding a microphone or pulling a recording from a sound board. It's a great bargain compared to the going rate for these kinds of recorders.
