question

If I import my MP3 music library onto the player or micro sd card will I be able to access my folders and subfolders? (On the Olympus ws853 it will only allow me to play individual tracks loaded into folders a b etc. meaning that I can't simply copy and paste my library as is.) Also, will it play consecutive tracks in an album automatically? (the Olympus will not)
Asked by: Joshua F.
Hi Joshua F,This recorder can access folders and subfolders and you'll just have to organize your music files in a folder to play them consecutively.Thanks,>Joffrey

question

I am curious about recording a lab mic into the unit and using the monitor port into a wireless system. What is the quality of the audio monitor port? Is it degraded?
Asked by: Michael
The headphone jack on this unit and similar are designed for simple dictation and not meant for high quality audio output. In addition the ICD-UX533 outputs a line level signal that will likely distort the input of most wireless system transmitters which are generally designed for mic level input only.

Can this record simultaneously from mic/line input AND built in mic? One mono channel each?

As far as I know you have to use the included sound organizer software. Just select 'New Group' on the right hand pane and name the new folder.
