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

The Doves nest wasn't all that far from where I was standing, just round the
corner of my house.
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.

No it can’t read the memory and systemin information.
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.

Ok, thanks for shairing, that make sense.
It sounds like the p4 mikes is more clearer and crisper than the ls14.
What do you observ?

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.

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.

Will the P4 tell you which file format you're recording in? May consider buying this unit. How easy is it to set up by a blind person out of the box? Thanks in advance.--Matthew Chao

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.

I agree, I love most of there recorders, and I stil enjoy the dm7 as
well. The only thing I don't like about ls14, is that the mikes is not
as crisp as the ls100 or zoom stuff, but yes its very quiet. Its also
the only recorder that have the ability to split files while recording
in real time. And yes to overdub is so easy on both ls14 and p4.

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.

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

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.

Smart mode isn’t everything.
The LS-P4 has a solution, you can normalise the recording.
If you’re not sure where to set the level for your recording then set the level to a fairly low value.
Start your recording and - if necessary - apply the normalise function to the recording when finished.
As you will hear with my capture of the Dove, the ‘Auto” mode does a pretty good job for most things.

Okay.
During clock set use the F3 key to toggle between 12 and 24 hour clock mode.
The recorder won’t announce which mode its in but you’ll know by using the up/down keys to move between the hours, if you’re in 24-hour mode you’ll hear values lead out larger than 12 obviously.

To be honest I've not seen this documented well anywhere.
The manual may reference this in a diagram perhaps but no verbal description exists.
I stumbled across this whilst playing about with the recorder when trying to set the time.
