£124.13 ex. vat
The Tascam TM-180 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with suspension shockmount, soft/hard case. 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. Types of "large diaphragm" microphones, which have a large diaphragm that converts the sound to an electric signal, especially it has a unique tone that is suitable for lead vocal recordings.
The vocal recording can be a typical application for a large-diaphragm condenser microphone. The US-2x2 incorporates Ultra-HDDA microphone preamplifier which boasts a great EIN performance of -125dBu. This means you can record a vocal track by US-2x2 with an extremely low noise level even when you are not singing while solo part is playing. Please use TM-AG1 (optional) as a dedicated pop filter. When the room resonance does not work at home, use TM-AR1, the acoustic control filter that gives you a dry, processable sound quality.
