playback to help you monitor your raw, unmastered recordings. Other handy
additions include a chromatic tuner and tripod stand mount.

Another recording mode is the Auto Level setting, which sets the level based on
the sound level in the room. Other settings include a low cut filter, useful for
removing rumble or wind noise when outdoors.
