24 Bit/ 96 KHZ Linear PCM Recording with Stereo Condenser Microphones.

By offering a PCM recording ability, the audio data is not compressed, demonstrating an extremely high fidelity. With a 24-bit maximum sampling rate and a 90 degree microphone layout, audio quality is never compromised with the LS-100. A frequency range of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz captures low bass and high treble frequencies with exceptional clarity. Independent left and right recording levels help you maintain balance and make adjustments on the fly.

Eight Tracksg

Multi-tracking and editing is a staple of professional recording, and is a technique where multiple separately-recorded sounds are mixed together to create a single stream of sound. On the LS-100, up to 999 tracks can be recorded in the fixed 44.1 kHz/16 bit format for CD writing, and up to eight tracks can be edited simultaneously.

High precision tuner and Metronome

The LS-100 comes with a built in electronic tuner function, essential for tuning instruments. By following the display, a user tunes their instrument until the on-screen tuning meter points stright up. When utilising the multitrack feature, by ensuring that each instrument is precisely tuned can aid in producing a professional sounding recording. The metronome function aids in keeping time for recordings.

Live recorder with plenty of uses beyond music.

It’s ideal for podcasting. Journalists and foley artists will appreciate the clear sound. Use it to build soundscapes or capture ambient noise. Birding and nature enthusiasts can record wildlife with lifelike clarity.
