About the peak level meters indicating the recording volume levels

During recording, the peak level meters () appear to help you adjust the recording level.

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 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 IC recorder closer to the sound source or increase the microphone sensitivity level.
