Tascam pocket sized iM2 stereo mic turns the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into a high-quality stereo recorder
Tascam today introduced a pocket sized iM2 stereo mic for iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch. TASCAM’s iM2 turns the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into a high-quality stereo recorder. A pair of condenser microphones – same high quality as Tascam’s best-selling DR-series recorders – plugs into the dock connector of your Apple device. The microphones are adjustable over 180 degrees for optimal sound placement. The iM2 contains its own microphone preamp and analog-to-digital converter for low noise and premium audio quality. Unlike mics that use the built-in iPhone preamp, the iM2 can handle up to 125dB SPL sounds for the loudest concerts and instruments.
Also enclosed in the iM2, is a stereo limiter to tame sudden loud sounds. The microphone level is adjustable with a knob on the side, making it quick and easy to adjust without looking at the unit. It’s powered through the dock connector so no battery is required. A USB input is provided to charge Apple iOS device for long recordings, either through a computer or Tascam’s PS-P515U power adapter.Tascam iM2 is the perfect recording accessory for musicians of all skill levels available for approximately $79. A PCM Recorder app, a perfect companion to the iM2 will be available shortly on the iTunes store at no charge.
