Olympus LS-12

Brian9428, 04.02.2015
This is a great recorder. I did a lot research before deciding on this and I'm very happy with my purchase.

I mostly use it for recording DJ sets and the sound quality is excellent. I recorded one gig where there were a number of DJs, so I couldn't record direct so I used the built-in mics and even that sounded good. Usually of course I record into it directly from the mixer or sound desk and for that purpose it's perfect. I have also used it for recording brief pieces of guitar ideas and it's ideal for this too.
The "smart mode" is really very handy and it takes all the hassle and fiddlyness out of setting your levels. The LS-12 is very easy to get the hang of and very easy to use.
A case would be beneficial, as it's made plastic and so not rock solid, but I've been carrying it around in a bag of cables for months now with no case and I've had no issue.

Overall, this is easy to use, sounds great, and very handy for a range of applications. I'm very happy with the LS-12, recommended.

Affordable Quality Equipment

Tsepe, 05.06.2014
Extremely easy to use, very good sound quality ,lightweight. It is very practical for musicians (sampling, recording their band) so voice recording is piece of cake for this portable recorder. Easy to record live performances even in very loud conditions. Excellent for recording in room conditions as it can cancel the sound reflections and voices sound crisp and clear very handy when creating video tutorials/broadcasting.
