The iM2X features a pair of condenser microphones and a high-quality preamp and plugs into the dock connector of the iOS device.

Unlike mics that use the iOS device’s built-in preamp, the Tascam iM2X with its internal A/D converter ensures low noise and better linearity in frequency response. The mic elements also used in Tascam DR series recorders can handle sound pressure levels up to 125 dB to capture the loudest concerts and instruments without distortion. Thanks to an input level control and a two-color level meter, level adjustment is very simple. A switchable limiter also contributes to this by reducing sudden peaks and protecting against unforeseen overload.
The Tascam iM2X is powered through the dock connector, so no battery is required. A USB input is provided to charge the iOS device for long recordings, either through a computer or a USB charger. An appropriate 2-track recording app (Tascam PCM Recorder) for iOS devices can be downloaded from AppStore at no charge.
