Field Report: Olympus LS-11

        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

The unit comes with a USB 2.0 connection so files can be retrieved easily and placed within any audio editing software. It comes packaged with Cubase LE4 music production software. The installation DVD-ROM also comes with a Cubase training video.

Audio files can be somewhat edited directly on the player by giving the user the ability to split files or delete parts of files. One of the features I found fun to use was reverb. While limited to on-the-player adding of reverb, I found myself recording man-on-the-street responses and playing them back as man-in-the-tunnel recordings. Just some extra to make the use of the Olympus LS-11 open to more imaginative uses, especially now that I have gotten over the If only I had this when phase and now moving to What else can I do with this recorder?


Some other aspects of the LS-11 worth mentioning are the visual aspects of the unit. The two mics come with foam wind guards that not only serve their purpose but give the unit a very professional look. The display screen is well-lit and easy-to-read and didn't have any icons that required a translation table. All the data displayed is straightforward.

All in all the Olympus LS-11 is perfect for anyone seeking a solid recording device for any professional use.
