The new miniature Teenage Engineering TP-7 field recorder has debuted
Following a release of a miniature studio microphone, the Teenage Engineering TP-7 field recorder has been revealed by the Swedish consumer electronic company based in Stockholm. The nifty gadget is designed to record sound, music, and interviews with “zero friction in the highest possible quality.”
As the most recent entry to their “Field” product lineup, the intuitive design of the Teenage Engineering TP-7 field recorder is about the size of a deck of cards and allows for simple, single-handed usage. On the left side of the recorder, there is a rocker that allows the user to easily switch between recording modes and scrub through audio.
Its three stereo two-way jacks (3.5 mm) enable connectivity with other microphones in addition to using the built-in microphone to record sounds without any issues. Keep in mind that the jacks can also fit other audio devices, such as other Field products by Teenage Engineering.
Additionally, the TP-7 contains a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. When recording audio, the user can pair it with an iPhone or laptop via the USB-C port or Bluetooth and use the Teenage Engineering iOS app to receive automatic transcriptions. The recorder also features a built-in speaker, a 7-hour rechargeable battery, and 128 GB of internal storage.
According to the company, the Teenage Engineering TP-7 field recorder is “a device engineered in every detail to do only one thing and to do it well,” and a great choice for “journalists, lawyers and medical professionals.” Priced at $1,499, expect the TP-7 to launch later this summer.
