Ideal for Content Creators

The versatile Olympus LS-P4 Audio Recorder is the perfect tool for YouTubers and content creators. If you’re a vlogger, a musician, a documentary filmmaker, a journalist, host your own travel, lifestyle, food or any other channel on YouTube, this sound recorder is sure to dramatically improve your production quality.

Tresmic 3 Microphone Array

The P4 features a Tresmic 3 Microphone design that offers wide-band recordings from a low 20Hz to 20,000Hz. Mimicking the function of the human ear, it utilises two directional microphones for stereo coverage, and incorporates a third for lower base frequencies. The end result is a rich, hi-resolution sound that does justice to a broad range of soundscapes.

Noise Cancellation Functionality

Its unique 3 mic design makes it possible for the recorder to deliver noise cancellation recordings. Offering clearer results in noisy environments such as train stations, general street traffic, restaurants, music festivals and more. Simply select the Noisy mode in the RecScene menu when you want to record a piece to camera or an interview with maximum vocal clarity.

Low-Cut Filter

Alternatively, a built-in Low-cut Filter reduces low frequency sounds such as air conditioners and other electrical appliances, to give you options to tune your settings based on your shooting environment.

Pre-Set Scene Recording

Pre-set scene recordings allow you to optimise sound for selected recording scenarios. Aside from the NOISY option, you can choose from real-world scenarios including Music, Dictation, Meeting, Conference, Lecture and Speech-Recognition to deliver more natural sounding results instantly. No post-processing required!

Zoom Microphone Recording

A zoom microphone function utilises the latest technology to narrow the directionality of the microphone and proportionately increase the recording level to isolate close-up recordings in noisy environments or recording a specific sound source from a distance.

3.5mm Microphone Input

For vloggers and YouTubers the recorder also features a 3.5mm input, accepting your favourite lavalier or other microphone. It also features a headphone port to allow you to monitor and adjust your recording levels to eliminate the risk of clipping.

FLAC Lossless Audio Codec Compatible

Designed to give you the most amount of creative versatility, the recorder is capable of saving files in the professional ultra-high quality FLAC format. Delivering a near-faultless 96kHz/24-bit recording that is better than CD quality, it ensures you retain the best possible audio quality for post-production requirements.

7 Sampling Rates

Naturally, the recorder also supports PCM (WAV) and MP3 formats allowing you to customise your output to suit your existing workflow. It also offers 7 different sampling rates including the popular 44.1kHz and 48kHz with a 24-bit depth for further flexibility.

Built-in Bluetooth Connectivity

Built-in Bluetooth connectivity enables you to pair the LS-P4 to your Android compatible smartphone. In conjunction with the free Olympus Audio controller BT App, you’re equipped to remotely start and stop recording, perfect for interviews and live music.

8GB Internal + Up to 32GB External Storage

8GB of internal storage offers up to 253 hours of MP3 quality audio recordings. For added versatility, the Olympus LS-P4 also supports microSDHC memory cards (sold separately), allowing you to add up to 32GB additional storage.

Integrated USB Interface

An integrated slide-out USB interface makes it a breeze to connect to your computer for fast file transfer. Conveniently eliminating the need for troublesome cables its ideal for busy content creators who usually find themselves editing in cafes, bus stops, airports, hotel rooms, ubers and other random ‘offices’.

Compact, Lightweight Metal Body Design

With a rugged metal body design that weights only 75g including the AAA battery, the Olympus LS-P4 Audio Recorder features a rear 1/4-inch thread at the rear of the device, enabling you to mount it on top of a DSLR or Mirrorless camera for a true high-resolution audio accompaniment for your video production.
