Pro recordings made easy – with Mode Dial & Smart Mode.

- Thanks to the user-friendliness of the LS-12, recording in top quality is a synch.

Fed up with getting lost in endless on-screen menus? The LS-12 goes back to basics – without compromising on any of the finished recording quality. It features a single front dial that lets you choose between tuner and various recording modes in an instant. Combine this with user-friendly display interfaces, an intuitive button design, a Voice Guide with audio announcements, and a Smart Mode that automatically adjusts to the optimum recording level, and it has never been easier to achieve such studio-standard results.

Cutting-edge microphone system for clear and powerful sound

- Produce loud, stereo recordings in top quality with acoustic resistance of 130dBspl.

The LS-12 effortlessly captures pristine, better-than-CD quality sound as linear PCM recording with up to 96kHz/24bit. This is thanks to two high-sensitivity and low-noise microphones set at 90-degree angles to allow natural and expansive stereo recording that faithfuly capture the original sound. This system is also capable of capturing pure sound of up to 130 decibels – for high-quality and immersive recordings without clipping even when recording live shows and concerts. The audio and system circuitry are separated to minimise sound degradation, while a switchable low-cut filter (100Hz/300Hz) helps you reduce unwanted background noises, wherever you’re recording.

Tuner, metronome, overdubbing & more.

- Enhance your tracks with high-powered functions specifically developed for musicians.

From the Chromatic Tuner for getting instruments in tune and the Metronome for keeping everything in time, right through to high-powered overdubbing capabilities and variable playback speed control, the LS-12 boasts a whole bunch of features that will be music to any musician’s ears. The ingenious pre-record buffer even captures several seconds of sound before you press the record button, so you never miss the beginning of a track recording. And once you’ve finished recording, the LS-12 also gives you a host of professional file management and editing options – including File Divide, Partial Erase, and Trimming capabilities.
