TRESMIC three microphone system for high-quality sound recording

Capture even the most subtle sounds, as is with Olympus’ advanced TRESMIC 3 microphone system. It uses two directional 90° outward-facing microphones for a natural stereo sound, and a third omni-directional microphone in the centre that excels at picking up lower frequency bass. This microphone array delivers a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz when the centre microphone is on, and 60 Hz to 20 kHz when off.

 


96 kHz / 24 bit, linear PCM recording quality

This model supports linear PCM recording at bit rates up to 24 bit and sampling frequencies as high as 96 kHz – far surpassing the 44.1kHz/ 16 bit of CD-quality audio. By selecting this bit rate and sampling frequency, users can make CDs of their own recordings.

 

Record and playback in FLAC lossless compression format

The Olympus LS-P4 is the first linear PCM recorder from Olympus compatible with the FLAC lossless compression format. FLAC is a format that allows file sizes to be compressed while maintaining the same sound quality as linear PCM. Due to the VBR (variable bit rate) encoding of FLAC, the quality is always lossless while the resulting bitrate is equal to the information in the original signal. This format is primarily used as the preferred format for high-resolution sound source distribution websites.

 

Manual recording level settings

The Manual Recording Level setting lets you fine-tune the recording level to match the volume of your sound source, maximising the dynamic range for high quality audio recording. This is a particularly important function when recording music. The Limiter function is effective for keeping the volume below a specific level when using the Manual setting. By checking the recording level meter on the LCD display and PEAK display indicator, you can easily adjust your recording levels.

Overdub your recordings and music to create something unique

The overdubbing function allows you to dub sound over a file while listening to it. Create an original recording using sources such as music CDs to make a unique recording in which you “perform together” with pro musicians, or add sound effects such as the bustle of the city or bird calls for subtle arrangements on top of existing data to make something original.
