Smart and Simple Recording

Had enough of endless on screen menus? The LS-12 goes back to basics with smart, streamlined controls. A single front dial lets you choose between various recording modes instantly. Combine this with the easy to read display interfaces, intuitive button design, and a Smart Mode that automatically adjusts to the optimum recording level and you'll see it's never been easier to achieve studio grade recordings.

High-Sensitivity Stereo Mics

The Olympus LS-12 captures pristine sound as linear PCM recording with up to 96kHz/24bit using two high sensitivity and low noise microphones set at 90 degree angles to allow natural and expansive stereo recording. Capable of capturing pure sound of up to 130 decibels, the LS-12 produces high-quality, immersive recordings without clipping even when recording live shows or gigs. The audio and system circuitry are separated to minimise sound degradation whilst a switchable low cut filter (100Hz/300Hz) helps you reduce unwanted background noise.

Musician Friendly Tools

The LS-12 has a number of functions specifically designed and developed for musicians. A chromatic tuner ensures your instruments are in tune before you start while a metronome keeps time. High powered overdubbing capabilities and variable playback speed control mean the LS-12 boasts a whole bunch of handy features. The pre-record buffer is an ingenious function that captures several seconds of sound before you press record so you'll never miss the beginning of a track! Once you've captured your sounds, the LDS-12 recorder gives you a host of professional file management and editing options including File Divide and Partial Erase.
