||Review: Olympus DS-2 Stereo Voice Recorder|
Response to: Meeting Room
@Shelbyjean: Sorry to hear about your recording problems.
1. Did you set the DS-2 to Hold or Off mode between uses? On my WS-200S, which uses just one battery, the charge lasts for weeks. And what type of batteries are you using?
2. Did you have the Variable Control Voice Actuator (VVCA) activated? That would have changed the recording length by omitting silences, but would also have made the recording shorter, not longer...so maybe you do have a dud.
3. As noted below, I had to turn the output level of the source way down to avoid distortion at the DS-2 input when recording.
4. Also as noted below, the DS-2 wouldn't be my first choice for digitizing line-level sources because of its automatic gain control and data compression. I'd go directly into the computer instead, ideally using an external audio interface.
