Win An Ace Portable Studio

Not every band can afford to hire Abbey Road or Muscle Shoals to lay down their new material, but then pre-booking your creative endeavours is a bit old-school nowadays anyway. What happens if inspiration strikes when you’re halfway up the motorway? Or a mountain?

The sharp minds at Olympus have come up with a nifty new gadget for any musical types who find themselves in just such a predicament. The LS-10 is a portable recording studio small enough to slip into your back pocket but capable of recording better-than-CD sound, across a variety of settings. Once back at home you can then transfer it across to your PC or Mac, and it comes complete with an intensive sound-editing software package.

A useful item then, and even old-school pros are impressed. Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, for example, has lauded the LS-10, suggesting that it’s “capable of recording at a quality that was previously only possible with a full mobile recording studio and a catering truck to look after that team of roadies. If you want to make the demo that will convince those record execs to write the cheque for the big advance then this is the machine for you. The fact that the additional software available lets you overdub and mix really completes the package.”

And he knows his onions.
