For extended recording control, the recorder contains a variety of audio utilities. Features such as auto-gain, compressor/limiter and low cut filter let you manage any acoustic or dynamic problems you may encounter while recording; all accessed through a newly designed menu interface. For gain control, a smooth, precise and silent analog dial is used over a digital control, so if you adjust the gain mid recording, there’s no handling noise added to the recording.
