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.

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.
 
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.
