High quality recording

With the ease of use found in all WS series recorders, this model achieves a highly realistic stereo feeling thanks to the two low noise, high sensitivity microphones. The new Intelligent Auto Mode provides automatic sensitivity adjustment, and a Low-cut filter removes unnecessary noise from your recordings.


Superb stereo feeling with True Stereo Microphones

Two low-noise directional microphones positioned at a 90° layout enable you to create high quality recordings with a realistic stereo feeling. This feature ensures that you capture the sense of direction and distance of the speakers in the recording which is useful for meetings, lectures or training presentations.

Automatic sensitivity adjustment with Intelligent Auto Mode

The new Intelligent Auto Mode function automatically adjusts the microphone sensitivity according to the input level. For example, when you record the voice of a person far away in a large meeting room, the input level tends to be lower. In this case, the recorder automatically raises the sensitivity of the microphone making them easier to hear. Alternatively, when you record in a smaller meeting room with only a few people, the sensitivity is automatically lowered, so that the voice of the speakers close by do not sound too loud. In this way, the function automatically keeps track of the input level and simultaneously adjusts the recording level so that it always records in the best quality. This ensures that the recording remains consistent by not having a speaker’s voice too quiet or too loud. To set this function, simply select "Auto" as the recording level from the menu.

  • If you select "Conference" for the recording scene while in Simple Mode, Intelligent Auto Mode is activated.
  • When low, the sensitivity is raised
  • When high, the sensitivity is lowered
The sensitivity is automatically optimised

Low-cut filter eliminates extraneous noise

During recording, the low-cut filter is used to cut the sound at frequencies of 300 Hz and lower during the recording process. Typical examples of these lower frequencies include air conditioner noise, projector fan noise, and even wind noise while outside. By cutting the lower frequency during recording your audio is natural sounding and free of background noise and distortion during playback.
