HAMBURG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With its inaugural appearance at the Frankfurt Musikmesse, Olympus emphasises its position in the music recording business. Visitors to the Olympus booth, designed in the look of a backstreet garage, can discover the award-winning Linear PCM audio recorders. Demonstrating their ease of use will be up-and-coming band Helene Hart, who will also perform live and premiere a video giving a behind the scenes look showing how the Olympus LS-12 and LS-14 make an invaluable contribution to the creative songwriting process. A special highlight for members of the press takes place on the first Musikmesse day. Helene Hart will make an exclusive live performance at a special press get-together on 10 April, 5:00 to 7:00 pm in the Olympus Garage. Members of the media wishing to attend are requested to register their participation in advance. The trade fair takes place in Frankfurt, Germany, from 10-13 April. The ‘Olympus Garage’ is located in Hall 5.1, Stand A80.
With its raw ‘roll up the sleeves and get to work’ look, the ‘Olympus Garage’ sets the scene for a genuine hands-on musical experience at the Frankfurt Musikmesse. The booth showcases the Olympus Linear PCM audio recorders, which are renowned for high-performance recording with superior sound and incredible ease of use.
German newcomer band Helene Hart, which is receiving increasing national attention, uses the Olympus LS-12 and LS-14 recorders enthusiastically. The band will debut a recently made video showing how the Olympus audio recorders supported the song making process for their song ‘Won’t Stop’ – enabling the exchange of ideas between band members quickly and on the go – from the initial idea to the finished track. The video was produced with kind support from cooperation partner and multimedia specialist MAGIX who will also be onsite at the Olympus booth.
With the Olympus audio recorders, musicians can record the inspiration that leads to a song in a flash using the Quick Mode, enabling easy instant recording. This initial idea can be shared via email or other electronic means with others who then may add their own ideas and comments to let the idea grow – by making overdubs to the original recording. As the process continues and the song matures, tracks can start to be laid down – with the Olympus recorders ensuring songs are both in tune and time thanks to built-in tuner and metronome functions. The sensational Smart Mode, which represents a real breakthrough in portable audio recording, is best used at this stage: it intelligently analyses input sound over a defined period and adjusts the optimal levels for true pro results – even up to an ear-splitting sound pressure level of 130dB SPL, without clipping. Each recorder incorporates two high quality 90-degree directional stereo microphones, which the LS-14 enhances with a third omni-directional mic to provide a Tresmic system returning especially pure, natural-sounding bass.
With its first-ever participation at the world-renowned Musikmesse Frankfurt, Olympus underpins its position in the music recording business. Torsten Lenk, Audio Business Unit Department Manager, explains: "Presenting the critically acclaimed Olympus Linear PCM audio recorders as well as live performances plus the video from the rising star of the north German music scene, Helene Hart, the Olympus Garage will grab the attention of visiting industry professionals and musicians alike."
The ‘Olympus Garage’ will be open for visitors to the 2013 Frankfurt Musikmesse from 10-13 April.
