  • When high, the sensitivity is lowered

2-Mic Noise Cancellation for recording in noisy environments

2-Mic Noise Cancellation effectively suppresses ambient peripheral noise to create a clear recording of your voice. Select the ‘Noisy Situation’ recording scene and bring one of the microphones close to your mouth. By recording with one microphone closer to your mouth, the recorder detects the difference in input levels between environmental noise at a distance from one microphone and your closer proximity voice received at the other microphone. In this way, the recorder can suppress environmental noise when recording in noisy environments.


Slate Tone convenient for video sound source recording

You can send and record a reference signal (Slate Tone) to the LS-P5 and your digital camera audio data for easier editing. With OM Workspace, audio recorded on the camera and the LS-P5 can easily be swapped.

  • The LS-P5 must be connected to the camera via an audio cable.

Test Tone convenient for adjusting camera recording levels

This feature is convenient when using the compact, high-performance LS-P5 as a microphone for video recording. Setting the camera audio recording level in conjunction with the Test Tone sent by the LS-P5 makes it easy to record at the optimal level.


Overdub your recordings and music to create something unique

You can monitor instrumental or other music data using earphones (or headphones) while recording and layering an original performance or song. When enjoyed for personal use, CDs and other commercially available music can be used for karaoke. You can also use recordings of city noise, the sounds of trains, birds, etc., in combination with other audio in post-dubbing. Use the recorder to inspire creativity in music and video production.
