Re: Another Olympus recorder question:

Yeah that's kinda too bad the eltrinex  doesn't have that stuff. But then again they ain't promoing it as a super awesome epic pro recorder either. Meh just a little note taking thing. But again it can do Blu-Ray disk quality audio. I red something about recording in stereo so it either must have stereo mikes or a stereo mike jack. Sounds curious though. I'd like to hear the audio from 1. But meh maybe not something I'd jump on right away as I do want phantum power and XLRs and what not. I ended up getting the LS 14 due to money more than that being what I wanted. However, it does have features that make me wish that it had XLRs and phantum power. It's almost perfect but for that. Make it something Zoom H5 like even and it's golden.

As per your question regarding TTS? I’ll need some help on this but
to my knowledge the DM4 was one of the few Olympus recorders to have

Not to meantion 14 has smart mode. Which isn't perfect, but when it works vbro it's awesome. That's why I wish they had put XLRs on it. Then youwould be all set. But yeah the mikes on the 100 are better frequencie responce wize. But I don't bother with the 3 mikes on my 14 so much. I just use my real mike. The Audio Technica AT-8022. But dude if the LS 14 had XLRs like the 100 does then you could use the 4021 mikes. Which hear full range. From 20 Hz to full 20 KHZ. The 8022 only goes up to 15. Or better yet you could use a pare of 4022 omni mikes in spaced omni configuration or the Rode NT-5 mikes that can be cardiode or omni.

There’s one problem with the reading of the time and date setting that
Olympus should address, in 12-hour mode no indication is given of AM or
PM time so to work around this you toggle the LS-P4 to 24 hour mode.

As I understand it the LS-P1 is the model down from the LS-p2 and

Guidance.
As per your question regarding TTS? I’ll need some help on this
but to my knowledge the DM4 was one of the few Olympus recorders
to have a fully fledged TTS built-in so that’s why that particular
model was able to handle so much more in the form of Daisy books
and so on.

Re: Another Olympus recorder question:

Wow, this is the first I've heard of this recorder. It definitely looks very int interesting especially as a great note taker. Thanks for mentioning it. I downloaded the manual and listened to some of the YouTube videos available on their site. It’s a bit expensive but not so bad when you consider that I paid over $300 for my DM4.





Best,

For the person who just mentioned this recorder. True it doesn't go up all the way to 96 KHZ or better yet 192. But it does 48 KHZ 24 Bits. Your typical 7.1 Blu-Ray disk like Jurasic Park the 2014 Godzilla and anything else are 48 KHZ. So yes it does do HD audio. How did you hear of this?


Re: Enjoy The Dove

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Yes you can set the format bit rate and sampling rate.
Incredibly easy to set up out of the box, insert the battery, turn the machine on and follow the prompts.

Yeah the P2 and P4 mikes have more hi frequencie. However, the 14 has more of a studio vibe to it. Meh maybe not as studio as I'd like, but way more studio sounding then the P recorders. The P ones sound a bit like the DM's.

I’ve never owned a LS-14 so can’t comment.
I tried to purchase a Ls-14 initially but that model has long since been discontinued so I was offered the LS-P4 as a substitute and I’m very glad I decided to order it.
Now as for a statement made earlier in this discussion by one of the other participants.
The LS-P1 and the LS-P4 are exactly the same recorder, the only difference is that the P1 doesn’t have Voice Guidance or Bluetooth.
As far as I’m aware the P2 has also been discontinued.

Does anybody here have any experience with the Eltrinex digital recorder?

wich have improvements there. Example, on dm4 you had to switch a
setting on wich allow file names to be spoken, but with dm7 there is
no such thing, it just works. It read everything even the password for
wifi.

Hi Dane.


I will report back tomorrow but my understanding is that the ls-p1 is
the
ls-p2 without the bluetooth feature.


The manual seems to indicate that voice guidance is there but I will
confirm tomorrow.


Believe me if it doesn't its going back right away grin!

I hope I’m wrong, I think the LS-P1 is one of Those that don’t have
speech and not all Olympus recorders do.
As I understand it the LS-P1 is the model down from the LS-p2 and
lacks
some of the functionality of the P2 including Voice Guidance.
As per your question regarding TTS? I’ll need some help on this but to
my
knowledge the DM4 was one of the few Olympus recorders to have a fully
fledged TTS built-in so that’s why that particular model was able to
handle so much more in the form of Daisy books and so on.
It is a pity that Olympus never continued on with the good work of the
DM4 to finish the job but there we are.

Hi listers,


Eagerly awaiting the arrival tomorrow of my ls-p1 recorder and had
one
question.


Does the ls-p series actually contain a text to speech synthesizer as
I
am told the olympus dm-4 does?


I ask because I would like to give names to the folders on the
recorder
and possibly create new ones and have their names spoken.


Thanks in advance.


Don

Ok, thanks for shairing, that make sense.

Yes if Olympus put their mind to it then this function could be incorporated
into later firmware and perhaps it will be but not now.
There’s one problem with the reading of the time and date setting that
Olympus should address, in 12-hour mode no indication is given of AM or PM
time so to work around this you toggle the LS-P4 to 24 hour mode.

I used the "Auto" level setting of the Olympus LS-P4 which - in my view
-
is
one of the best "Auto" level setups I've ever used as the recorder has a
"Look Ahead" function for want of a better description to check what the
level is.
I used the internal microphones of the recorder and the recording as you
heard it is what I originally recorded including original filename and
format.
For what it is the Olympus LS-P4 is a pure gem.

Hi,
Ooh the birdies this just made my day I can't tell you how much fun this
was. How far away was that dove from you? Was this recorded with the
internal mics of the ls-p4? Was center mic on or off and did you use one
of
the preset mic levels or set them manually?
Thanks so much for sharing this.
Take good care.
Robin

I recorded this in my Back Yard with my Olympus LS-P4 recorder around 2
months ago.
