Tascam goes live
Developed for live broadcasting, podcasting, film dialogue and audio streaming, the TM-70 dynamic microphone from Tascam combines super-cardioid and dynamic elements and is reportedly resistant to ambient noise. With a frequency response of 30Hz – 20kHz, the TM-70 was specifically engineered to capture what it is pointed at, isolating sound sources such as directional dialogue. The mic’s super-cardioid directivity is said to enable users to achieve a clean, clear audio signal that results in “first-class speech intelligibility”. Accessories include a shock mount to reduce low-frequency rumble, a 1.8m cable and a table-top mic stand.
Featuring a unidirectional cardioid design, the TM-82 has been developed for recording and performance applications. It has a frequency response of 50Hz – 20kHz and is said to capture the character and nuances of performances without introducing room sound into the mix. Suitable for both vocals and instruments, the mic comes with a holder that is compatible with all standard microphone stands.
The manufacturer has also announced several new features to its DR-10L micro linear PCM recorder. An OLED backlit display reportedly provides clear, real-time information about record levels and SD card status. In addition to support for 48kHz/24-bit BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) and WAV format recording, the DR-10L also offers MP3 recording at both 128kbps and 192kbps. Another new feature is its Poly file dual record capability with adjustable dB level that automatically makes a backup track to the SD card. Users can, for example, set the dB level of the backup track to –6dB or –12dB to create recordings that are said to be free from clipping or distortion. Level meters are now active during both recording and playback.
