SNAMM08: Affordable Stereo Mic


TASCAM has announced the TM-ST1 Mid-Side Stereo Microphone. Users can select between 90 degree and 120 degree stereo pickup patterns to vary the amount of ambience, audience sound or background noise captured in the recording. The Mid-Side pickup pattern captures a wide stereo field while maintaining a solid center image for great mono compatibility.
Paul Jenkins, VP of Sales and Marketing for TASCAM, told us, "The success of our portable recording systems like the DR-1, DP-02 and US-144 showed us the need for low-cost microphones.The TM-ST1 is our latest microphone offering, and it reinforces TASCAM's history of making great recording quality available to musicians everywhere."
TASCAM's TM-ST1 employs a back-electret condenser capsule for crisp response with a long battery life. The output cable terminates to a 3.5mm stereo jack for use with recorders like TASCAM's DR-1. Also included with the microphone are a tabletop stand, wind screen and mic stand clip. TASCAM say that the affordable microphone excels at capturing live music, school ensembles, worship ceremonies, songwriter demos and album sessions. The TM-ST1 is now shipping with an MSRP of $99.
