About the peak level meters

During recording, the peak level () appears for the left and right built-in microphones to indicate the recording volume levels for the input sound.

Please adjust the orientation of the built-in microphones, the distance from the sound source, or the sensitivity setting of the microphones so that the recording volume level stays around -12 dB, which fits within the optimum range, as illustrated above. See Selecting the sensitivity level of the built-in microphones (Built-In Mic Sensitivity) for selecting the microphone sensitivity level.


  • When the input sound volume is low, it is recommended you move your linear PCM recorder closer to the sound source or increase the microphone sensitivity level.
