Weighing just 71g, the MTCR captures professional audio, synchronised with timecode

Lectrosonics has designed its MTCR (Miniature Time Code Recorder) for when the distance is too great or it’s not practical to use a wireless microphone. Its  size and rounded shape, the MTCR can travel with the subject by being placed in garments and costumes or concealed if it’s being used as a ‘plant’ microphone to capture environmental or location sound.

The MTCR records in 24-bit/48kHz digital onto a microSD card (HC type, Class 10) in the industry-standard WAV format. The unit can be jammed to external timecode via the standard five-pin Lemo connector. A headphone output jack allows for monitoring the signal input or listening to previously recorded files but cannot be used to send live audio to another device while recording. The input connector is the TA5M jack that accepts any mic or line-level signal and provides bias voltage to power a wide variety of electret lavalier microphones. The input connection and wiring are compatible with microphones pre-wired for use with Lectrosonics professional wireless microphone transmitters with servo bias-type inputs.

Setup and adjustment are made through an interface provided by the keypad and LCD. The housing is manufactured from tough aluminium alloy then hard anodised for the ruggedness needed in field production. The MTCR reportedly runs for over six hours on a single lithium AAA battery. It provides a 20Hz–20kHz frequency response, 105dB(A) signal-to-noise ratio (in HD mono mode) and 0.035% distortion. Timecode is SMPTE 12M – 1999 compliant. The MTCR measures 60mm x 54mm x 17mm and weighs 71g with the battery. It comes with an M152/5P low-noise omni lav microphone, microSD memory card, belt clip and AAA lithium battery.
