Excellent ultra-portable recorder

John Dale, 08.05.2017
A recorder which produces audio files as good as my Zoom recorder, but in a much smaller form factor. Copes well with high SPLs at gigs.

Tiny but effective

08.04.2016
I was looking for a "fieldrecorder" to take samples, snippets and atmos which I can afterwards abrasten via ableton.

I do not regret the purchase. The quality is really good (had feared the ls p2 is only as a (very nice) dictation device)

The most brilliant is the size. He is tiny. TINY! Unobtrusive recordings are certainly possible - at first glance does not differ much from my old sony mp3player. It is also easy to transport - jacket pocket, no problem. So many older tascam etc is simply too bulky. Operation with one hand = zero problemo.

Thanks to the "zoom" function, you can selectively focus a sound source or capture a holistic sound. The folds also quite adequately.

At the beginning it is a bit fumble the appropriate setting to find - basses (autobrummen) are present with activated third mic and without lowcut partial strongly - but can be switched off and corrected later. no problem. The beautiful is (which some criticize, but I find absolutely good) the "preliminary function". Before you take it, you can hear the actual signal via headphones - only by pressing again on "rec" does it pick up and a (optional switchable) led lights orange as a ring around the recorder key. fine!

From the off-state to the recording pass, iirc, only about 4 seconds - that is absolutely okay.

Tips and recommendations:

The screen I have made with 2 streaks tesa "scratch resistant" - cheapest and most effective solution.

I can only recommend windshields - I have an amazon worried about. Wind does not like the guy, but with appropriate protection can be synonymous outside (unless the wind is stormy) loosely convert.

As a fitting, very interesting, mic I can recommend the "earworm 3". to Google!
___________________

Small mankos: battery compartment looks relatively fragile. As better change carefully - but the batteries also last forever.

Unfortunately he is quite prone to "noise". If one holds the thing but on a tripod or simply quietly in the hand holds (actually no problem ....) so synonymous clean recordings. Since I would rather short scenes capture or short noise, for me no problem that everything from the hand to make -> who wants a longer lecture, a discussion or a tape sample without disturbing hand noise, should be a gorillapad, ministativ o, ä - or simply ding the thing somewhere.

Conclusion: if you want the smallest possible quality recorder, the ls p2 is certainly good. Who would like a similar-good recorder, the metal housing can do without and only the half would like, should times the zoom h1 view.
