TASCAM in Montebello, Calif., introduces the pocket sized iM2 stereo mic (street price of $79), which provides 44.1kHz/16-bit linear PCM stereo recording for the Apple iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4G, iPad, and iPad 2. The iM2 comprises a pair of condenser microphones (the same microphones found on TASCAM’s DR Series recorders) that plug into, and are powered by, the Apple device's dock connector.

The microphones are adjustable over 180 degrees for optimal sound placement. The iM2 contains its own microphone preamp and analog-to-digital converter for low noise and premium audio quality. Unlike mics that use the built-in iPhone preamp, the iM2 can handle up to 125dB SPL.

The iM2 also includes a stereo limiter and an adjustable input level control on the side of the unit. A USB input is provided for charging an Apple iOS device for long recordings, either through a computer or TASCAM’s PS-P515U power adapter.

TASCAM states that a PCM Recorder app for the iM2 will be available on the iTunes store at no charge.
