Swedish consumer electronics company, Teenage Engineering, has finally completed its new line of Field products after launching its CM-15 mic and TP-7 recorder. These two Field products are also joined by the previously released TX-6 mixer and the OP-1 Field synthesizer.
The CM-15 is a tiny studio microphone packed with impressive features wrapped in an aesthetic design. With dimensions as tiny as 90 mm x 65.6. mm x 19 mm and a weight of 132 g, the CM-15 makes for one ultra-portable large-diaphragm studio microphone. Its mic sensitivity is comparable to the industry-favorite, Shure SM7B, and can give other great studio microphones a run for their money in terms of overall performance. A few of the CM-15 studio microphone highlights and features are the following:
With such features, the CM-15 can be used in various applications such as vocal recording, instrument recording, interviews, podcasting, field production, and even as a camera microphone. All things considered, the hefty price tag of $1,199 is understandable as the CM-15 can pass as your go-to studio and on-the-go microphone for almost everything.
As for the TP-7, this recorder is indeed built for the “field” as it takes the concept of portability, convenience, and accessibility to another level. This portable recorder that perfectly fits in the palm of your hand has a long list of highlights and features that combine the best parts of a vintage cassette recorder and a digital one (and possibly more):
In addition to all these, perhaps the best feature of the TP-7 is its audio-to-text function. The process of transcribing all the audio recordings will be quick and easy as the TP-7 can do this for you by simply connecting the device via BLE or USB and opening the TP-7 app. With everything said, the TP-7 is the perfect recorder to use for interviews, podcasts, voice memos, field recordings, and even live performances.
