The Olympus recorders don't have editing functions at all. The only way you
can vary the sound or vary the pan or cut and paste is to use your PC to do
it. The recorders themselves are very basic; the only basic buttons are
record, stop, play, forward and rewind, and volume. And the menu button of
course. There are a few others like erase and folder toggle.
I will have the Edirol R-1 some time soon and I suspect that it works in a
similar way except it has some effects, specifically reverb, that I want.
And with the Edirol, you have some control over how loud the recording will
I suppose if you wanted to vary the pan or use equalization (vary treble and
bass, as you said) you would need a mixer. I just got a Behringer UB802 and
it has a three band EQ built in so you can vary the sound that comes
through the mixer. I am still trying to figure some things out, such as
where the stereo inputs are (I know where the two XLR mono and the two
line-in mono inputs are.) The only output I've figured out so far is the
headphone jack. I know where all the EQ knobs are, and the master knobs, and
the headphone volume and overall master volume for the mixer. I don't know
about the other outputs though, and it sure doesn't look like the tape in
and out use standard RCA plugs. But I could be wrong.
The trouble with a lot of this stuff is that you end up with a lot of stuff
to plug in if you want to do a simple mixed recording, and you need a lot of
cables and AC outlets. There's no one thing that will do everything.
