Tascam TM-60 Condenser Microphone
In recording, microphone plays an important role, that is, converting the pneumatic vibration that turns the sound into electric signals. Of course, a preamplifier that amplifies the microphone signals, an AD converter that converts the sound into digital signals, and the DAW software that shapes the sound. All these gears are important after the recording stage. However, these gears work with the sound which has already been converted by the microphone. This means, the quality of a microphone detemine the sound quality of the entire song.
To easily acquire high-precision sound in a home recording environment, why not starting from adding a condenser microphone in your recording gears?
The condenser microphone has a different structure from the dynamic microphone which can be easily seen everywhere. In general, the condenser mic has high-precision, subtle sound quality. Diaphragms are largely divided into large diaphragms and small diaphragms according to the size of diaphragm that converts the sound into electric signals. Small diaphragms are normally used for condenser microphones for their versatility.
Among the TASCAM microphone series that have been tested with the TASCAM products, the TM-60 is the only model that does not require phantom power supply. It is optimum for the mobile environment where phantom power supplies cannot always be provided. It is optimum especially when operating the audio interface by the bus power of PC or when using the condenser microphones by the devices operated by batteries such as DP-008EX or DR-44WL, for it enables to use the condenser microphones without consuming the electric power of the devices.
* The figure shows a diaphgram of typical condenser microphones. TM-60 is a condenser of back electret condenser type, which has a slightly different structure, but no specific difference is in the features.
