Re: [all-audio] Looking For Equivalent to Olympus DS-40Recorder

Hello list:  Well I decided on the DM720 (hopefully this will turn out to be 
what I am after) mainly, I wanted something that will record live music well as 
that's how I used my old DS-40 (someone said that the DM720 is kind of the 
"updated" version of the old DS series!  I received the DM720 today, so now I 
need someone to get me going in the right direction; need to figure out where 
the batteries go in, as well as learn what talks and what doesn't talk!  I do 
appreciate everyone's indulgence and suggestions!

Alright well if you would like a DS I think that this then means and I 
don't know if this even ixists anymore, I'll suggest the DS 71. My 
friend Brian has it. What exactly of the DS do you want in your new 
recorder? Here's the thing with the LS-P2. It's part of the LS line with 
is a bit more pro focused. But it is a musicians thing and stuff. It's 
able to record up to full glorious Blu-Ray disk quality of 96 KHZ at 24 
bits per sample. So you get a little mini 1 tripple a powered stick in 
your pocket and go HD recorder. You'll be able to set the date and time 
on your own

  cause they've now had the british lady they record come back and say 
the months days hours and so on. That's basically the thing with that. 
Now the other thing is you don't have to wory about that little snap off 
mike cause the mikes are built in and the jack for the external is some 
place else. So there is another advantage there. But if it's a DS you 
are after exactly then the DS 71 if it can be found even on Amazon would 
be the way to go. Someone correct this if wrong but I do think that the 
71 can record DVD quality 48 KHZ 16 bits. So there's that. Hence why I 
steped up to the LS line with the LS-14 cause I love recording at 
Blu-Ray quality. But the 71 doesn't do it nor do the DM's which are the 
consumer music player recorders. The most famous with blind people of 
which is the DM4.

Tom,

I reaalise that it is difficult to keep pace with the developments in

is
now very ordinary.

For Olympus digital audio recorders, take a look at the following web
page:
https://www.olympus.com.au/Products/Digital-Audio-Recorders/Business.aspx

Under the heading "digital audio recorders" you will see the various

That is to say, user interfaces for the sound and field recorders

interfaces for notetaker devices or business devices are designed for
dictation or recording meetings.

Therefore, a DM-720 business recorder will be good for dictation and
meetings but, even though it has the digital technology to do so, it
will
not make it convenient to record live music.

By the way, if you take the time to look, the LS-100, LS-14, LS-12
and
LS-P2 are all shown as current models.

Tom,

I reaalise that it is difficult to keep pace with the developments in
technology but what we thought was fantastic technology 10 years ago is
now very ordinary.

For Olympus digital audio recorders, take a look at the following web
page:
https://www.olympus.com.au/Products/Digital-Audio-Recorders/Business.aspx

Under the heading "digital audio recorders" you will see the various
categories of digital recorders.  For example, under the heading of
"business" you will see the DM-720 which is the current equivalent of your
old recorder.

What is not obvious is that all of these recorders have the same core
technology and just have different user interfaces to make them more
usable for different classes of people.

That is to say, user interfaces for the sound and field recorders (the LS
series) is designed for people making high fidelity recordings.  The
interfaces for notetaker devices or business devices are designed for
dictation or recording meetings.

Therefore, a DM-720 business recorder will be good for dictation and
meetings but, even though it has the digital technology to do so, it will
not make it convenient to record live music.

By the way, if you take the time to look, the LS-100, LS-14, LS-12 and
LS-P2 are all shown as current models.

Ah okay. Well apparently the multy track stuff and over dub is sorta 
kinda usable on the 100. But if you like me get thrown off easely 
without speach and loos track of what's happening it may not be useable 
enough. I'd try 1 before getting 1. Who knows save up the money for 
future and maybe Olympus might make something like the Zoom H6 that is 
maybe even more accessible then the LS-P2 and the DM720.

I just use the sinority software to sync the pc date and time on the 14.
As for ptr2, I love that machine, but unfortunetly, plextalk really
have to keep up with times and they should think of supporting newer
stuff as well.
Why don't they take the pocket for example and then make it able to
record on cd directly by means of a external USB dvd drive? Everyone
have it or can obtain it. And pocket ptp1 is cheaper and stil
available.
I fear that ptn2 can also go as the hardware is no longer available
for aph bookport models.

Tom,

I reaalise that it is difficult to keep pace with the developments in 
technology but what we thought was fantastic technology 10 years ago is now 
very ordinary.

For Olympus digital audio recorders, take a look at the following web page:
https://www.olympus.com.au/Products/Digital-Audio-Recorders/Business.aspx

Under the heading "digital audio recorders" you will see the various categories of 
digital recorders.  For example, under the heading of "business" you will see the DM-720 
which is the current equivalent of your old recorder.

What is not obvious is that all of these recorders have the same core 
technology and just have different user interfaces to make them more usable for 
different classes of people.

That is to say, user interfaces for the sound and field recorders (the LS 
series) is designed for people making high fidelity recordings.  The interfaces 
for notetaker devices or business devices are designed for dictation or 
recording meetings.

Therefore, a DM-720 business recorder will be good for dictation and meetings 
but, even though it has the digital technology to do so, it will not make it 
convenient to record live music.

By the way, if you take the time to look, the LS-100, LS-14, LS-12 and LS-P2 
are all shown as current models.

If you look around, you can still find an LS-14.  I purchased a brand new one 
as recently as 6 weeks ago.

However, you may find it cheaper and just as good, quality wise, to purchase an 
LS-P2.

The LS-P2  has the voice guidance for the menus and is, to all intents and

It is, however, physically smaller than the LS-14 but it is particularly good

Yeah the over dub could'a been done like it is on the 14. Same for multy 
track. Unless you don't have to throw away the whole file cause you 
screwed 1 track? As for the epic PTR2. Ah so they've finally done it? 
They got rid of it. Sye. I knew it saddly had to happen at some point. 
For pure sillyness too. It's cause of the limits on what CF cards work. 
Well there's the whole CD thing too. But it wasn't picky about CD's. But 
1 people don't use CD no more and 2 even if you did the PTR2 spun up 
like a laptop drive and so using CD kills your battery like there's no 
tomorrow. Trust me I remember. That's why I always used CF cards. Along 
with the fact that you don't then get the drive noise either. Sad to 
hear but oh wells. I knew that saddly it was gonna happen. In fact, I 
was rather plesantly shocked to find a PTR2 at the Plextalk table at the 
2013 NFB convention. Cause of the card thing. Which is just silly. I 
mean look at the 2004 Pac Mates they exept what ever CF cards. Heck to 
stick with recorders and the time period of the PTR2 look at the Marantz 
PMD671. That thing would take what ever. It was about the price of a 
PTR2 as well. But the big thing with that would be phantum power from 2 
XLRs and that it could record in Blu-Ray disk quality audio. PCM WAV 96 
KHZ 24 bits. That's a Blu-Ray disk. But Plextalk never went above CD. 
Heck step up to 48 KHZ even and that is DVD at least. But anyways good 
to know that the multy track and over dub are at least some what usable 
on the 100. Neal made it sound like meh why even bother. But then again 
maybe he was right. Lots of people me included can get easely thrown off 
with out speach or beeps or nothin.

Ah which issues were those? Meh I can't tell you how accessible it is now VS

Ah yeah that's right. But I seem to remember Neal having that channal issue 
with boath. But yes you're right. It's a limiter that the 14 has.
A digital 1 I might add. Which a guy on youtube named Curtus Jud doesn't verry 
much like. Cause as it's a software thing the distorsion can still happen and 
ruen your audio before the limiter does it's thing to it. He says an analaug 1 
on the pres is better. Mind you though this guy is a pro. He does TV adds and 
stuff. Which I guess the 100 is kinda for people like him. I always just 
considered the LS-100 the accessible version of something like the Zoom H4N Pro.

2017-12-23 Thread Hamit Campos
Alright well if you would like a DS I think that this then means and I 
don't know if this even ixists anymore, I'll suggest the DS 71. My 
friend Brian has it. What exactly of the DS do you want in your new 
recorder? Here's the thing with the LS-P2. It's part of the LS line with 
is a bit more pro focused. But it is a musicians thing and stuff. It's 
able to record up to full glorious Blu-Ray disk quality of 96 KHZ at 24 
bits per sample. So you get a little mini 1 tripple a powered stick in 
your pocket and go HD recorder. You'll be able to set the date and time 
on your own


 cause they've now had the british lady they record come back and say 
the months days hours and so on. That's basically the thing with that. 
Now the other thing is you don't have to wory about that little snap off 
mike cause the mikes are built in and the jack for the external is some 
place else. So there is another advantage there. But if it's a DS you 
are after exactly then the DS 71 if it can be found even on Amazon would 
be the way to go. Someone correct this if wrong but I do think that the 
71 can record DVD quality 48 KHZ 16 bits. So there's that. Hence why I 
steped up to the LS line with the LS-14 cause I love recording at 
Blu-Ray quality. But the 71 doesn't do it nor do the DM's which are the 
consumer music player recorders. The most famous with blind people of 
which is the DM4.

If you look around, you can still find an LS-14.  I purchased a brand new one 
as recently as 6 weeks ago.

However, you may find it cheaper and just as good, quality wise, to purchase an 
LS-P2.

The LS-P2  has the voice guidance for the menus and is, to all intents and 
purposes, the replacement for the LS-14.

It is, however, physically smaller than the LS-14 but it is particularly good 
for live recording.

Tom,

The best unit to replace your old recorder is LS-P2 which you can read
about on the page:
https://www.olympus.com.au/Products/audio/Sound-(Music-Field)/LS-P2/Ov
erview

The list price is shown as $179 but I'm sure that if you look around
you will find it cheaper.

Don't let the hype on the web page fool you.  This is a small unit
that will easily fit in a shirt pocket and is, for the most part, simple to use.
You'd better make that a shirt pocket with a button down flap because
unless you wrap the P2 in a tissue, it will slip out when you bend
over. Better still, buy a Gutman wind screen for it.

It is the replacement for the LS-14 and, like the LS-14, has voiced
menus.Bob Nelson

Re: [all-audio] Looking For Equivalent to Olympus DS-40Recorder

2017-12-20 Thread Norma A. Boge
Tom, you might want to look on Ebay, I got 26 hits for Olympus DS 40, some
new, some preowned. And I'm sure they would have some DS 50 listings as
well. HTH Norma

Subject: [all-audio] Looking For Equivalent to Olympus DS-40Recorder

Hello list:  Well it would seem that I have lost my good ole Olympus DS040
digital recorder!  I've looked all over in areas where I thought it might
be!  But alas, it just doesn't seem to be here!  I know that this series of
digital recorders don't exist anymore under DS-40 or DS-50!  But what is
Olympus making now that is the equivalent?  I used this recorder mainly to
record music gigs (I know it mainly is supposed to be a voice recorder) but
I found that it doesn't do bad for recording live music!  I also liked this
machine because of its size (small enough that I could just stick it in my
pocket) so assuming that I cannot locate the one I have, I'd surely love to
find a good replacement for it; I'd even go for the equivalent to the DS-50
(which might be even better; also would like to know where would be the best
place to find one here in the U.S.A.?  

Thanks,

Tom Kaufman
