Wide range of playback and editing functions

It has a full range of playback functions, including Voice Balancer and Noise Cancellation for easier listening and editing functions that can be performed without a computer.

Voice Balancer ensures everyone can be heard

The voice balancer automatically makes smaller voices louder when voices are at different volume levels due to distance and physical relationship to the recorder. It ensures that louder voices stay below a given level, providing playback where everyone is audible. This comes in handy when recording sound sources from multiple positions, such as a large meeting or conference.

The voice filter function operates simultaneously and reduces the prominent noise produced when amplifying small sounds. By eliminating the lower and higher frequencies during playback, any recorded voice is further enhanced.

Normalization – Maximized volume for easier listening

The LS-P5 includes a Normalization function that operates within the recorder without computer software. This function raises the volume of recorded data to its highest limit without causing distortion. So even when the recording level is too low, it can be raised to a decent level. Normally, when raising the recording level to capture quiet sounds, the resulting audio may become distorted or when making adjustments to avoid this distortion, the recording may be too quiet. The volume is maximised with the Normalisation function while maintaining recording quality during playback. Available to record a normalized file as a new file.

Noise Cancellation for clear playback quality

The Noise Cancellation function ensures clear playback by powerfully reducing unwanted continuous ambient noise such as air-conditioner noise or projector fan noise found in busy offices or noisy meeting rooms. This function is very effective when playing back recording files.

  • Recording containing background noise
  • Recording with noise cancellation applied

Efficient Voice Playback – Hear only what you need

Using the Voice Playback function allows you to skip non-voice parts during playback and only play parts of the file where there is speech to save time and improve playback during transcription. Additionally, by selecting ‘Record and Extract at Once’, the parts which contain voice will be extracted during recording, so the Voice Playback function will be ready to use as soon as the recording finishes.

File Divide makes it simple to handle longer files

Recordings of long meetings with many topics or audio files that are too big to send via email can be divided on the recorder without having to use a computer. This makes it easier to manage files according to the content or divide files into a smaller size to send via email.

Trimming function - Songs trimmed to perfection

The Trimming function allows you to remove the unnecessary start and finish of recordings directly on the recorder – such as the time taken to ready the instrument after pushing the REC button or the time taken to press the stop button when you’ve finished playing. LS-P5 also has a Partial Erase function, and It is useful for recording several songs continuously and allows you to select and cut out the unwanted space between songs.

Find your recordings fast with Calendar Search

With this handy function, your saved recordings are automatically marked with the date and displayed in a calendar format. Because the files are displayed in this format, you can easily find the file you are looking for by the date it was recorded.

Various features that make it easier to find playback files

In addition to creating folders, you can add names such as "Conference" or "Lecture" to recording folders to make files easier to find. You can change folder and file names to whatever you like using the DVR.Remote smartphone app. There is also an Intro Playback function which allows you to play back just the intro, making it easy to find the file you’re looking for.

  • Creating a folder
  • Changing a file name

Fade-in / Fade-out for smooth track transition

This feature gradually increases the sound volume from the first second of the sound source and reduces volume over the last second. This links songs naturally when recording live sound and helps eliminate unnatural clicking sounds to produce a smooth transition between tracks.
