Tascam has added two new models to its growing range of microphones – TM-70 and TM-82.
The TM-70 is a dynamic microphone that is an outstanding choice for live broadcasts, podcasting, film dialogue and audio streaming. Designed as a unique hybrid of super-cardioid and dynamic elements, the TM-70 suppresses ambient noise and is ideally tuned to the nuances of the human voice. With its distinctive directivity and a frequency range of 30 Hz to 20 kHz, this mic captures what it is aimed at and effectively emphasises it. As a result, the user gets a clean, clear audio signal with first-class speech intelligibility.
The Tascam TM-70 comes with a suspension shock-mount to reduce low-frequency rumble, a mic cable, and a table-top stand – everything needed to set up at one’s desktop and immediately start recording.
The TM-82 features a unidirectional cardioid pattern specifically suited for speech, vocals and acoustic instruments. Thanks to excellent reproduction quality over a frequency range from 50 Hz to 20 kHz, it can be used equally well for recordings and live performances. The cardioid pattern reduces the risk of feedback and also produces a moderate proximity effect that can give vocals and other sound sources a particularly warm “bottom”. Furthermore, the microphone is easy to handle as it does not require phantom power.
The TM-82’s robust metal construction and proven electrical concept make it a reliable companion for musicians, rental companies or municipal event venues for many years.
The TM-70 has the SRP of £79.00 / €85.00 and the TM-82 has the SRP of £42.00 / €45.00. Both products are available from the end of January.
