Tascam recently introduced a pocket sized iM2 stereo mic for iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch.

Tascam’s iM2 turns the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into a stereo recorder. A pair of condenser microphones – same quality as Tascam’s DR-series recorders – plugs into the dock connector of your Apple device. The microphones are adjustable over 180 degrees for sound placement. The iM2 contains its own microphone preamp and analog-to-digital converter. Unlike mics that use the built-in iPhone preamp, the iM2 can handle up to 125dB SPL sounds.

 

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. It’s powered through the dock connector so no battery is required. A USB input is provided to charge your Apple iOS device for long recordings, either through a computer or Tascam’s PS-P515U power adapter.

 

Features:

  • Stereo condenser microphones for iPhone 4, iPod Touch or iPad dock connection
  • Stereo condenser microphones – same as our best-selling DR-series recorders
  • Microphones adjustable 180 degrees front to back
  • Built-in analog to digital converter and microphone preamp for low noise recording
  • 125dB SPL maximum level for recording loud shows without distortion
  • Switchable limiter attenuates high-level signals to prevent recording overload
  • Adjustable input level control
  • Powered through iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch dock connector
  • USB input allows the iPhone or iPad to be charged from a USB connection or optional TASCAM PS-P515U
  • CD-quality digital recording (44.1kHz/16-bit linear PCM)
  • Compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4G, iPad, iPad 2
Pricing:
iM2 is available now at a street price of $79.  A PCM Recorder app, companion to the iM2 will be available shortly on the iTunes store at no charge.
