Equipped With a High-performance AD Converter, Direct Transmission of Digital Audio to the Camera

Because of TASCAM know how and premium AD converters, the CA-XLR2d is all about clean, noise-free, professional audio. It enables high-quality audio and smart voice recording utilizing various specialized brands of audio equipment. By transmitting digital audio directly to the camera via an accessory shoe that supports digital transmission, there is no deterioration in sound quality, but it also frees you from the work of synchronizing images and sound in post production. In addition, the CA-XLR2d is driven by the power supply from the camera, so if you connect it to a compatible camera, you can have compact operation without the need for a dedicated power supply.

High-performance HDDA Mic Preamplifier Achieves High Sound Quality, Low Noise, and Wide Dynamic Range

CA-XLR2d is equipped with a high-performance microphone preamplifier that can process anything from room tone to explosions and support a wide range of sets and environments. Each input supports microphone / line level switching and + 48V phantom power supply. CA-XLR2d allows input of dynamic microphones, condenser microphones and line-level audio signals from a mixer.

Designed For a High Degree of Freedom

A cold shoe on the top panel expands setting flexibility. The shock mount mechanism is vibration resistant, noise-friendly and allows connection of various microphones. Two XLR/TRS input terminals and one 1/8-inch stereo mini microphone input terminals supports multiple shooting scenarios. CA-XLR2d has the flexibility that adapts to the gear necessary for the job.

Built-in Processing With User-friendly Control and Highest Recording Quality

CA-XLR2d includes internal processing such as Auto Level, Low Cut Filter, and Limiter, all using convenient switches. The CA-XLR2 also supports the 1+2 LINK function, which allows you to adjust the L-R volume simultaneously when recording in stereo. The premium sound quality is possible because of professional grade 16bit/24bit, 48kHz/96kHz bit rates and sampling frequencies.

Direct monitoring using headphones is possible

Built-in analog output terminal with headphone mode options that provides latency-free direct monitoring.
