Testing….Testing…. The Zoom M3 MicTrak Stereo Shotgun Microphone and Recorder consists of two internal shotgun mics that can switch between hyper-focused supercardioid (90°) or wider bidirectional (180°) modes at the press of a button. Thanks to dual AD converter circuits, no gain adjustment is necessary, and the M3 captures quality audio in 48 kHz / 32-bit floating point for crisp sound without clipping.
Designed for Ease of Use. This unit replaces the need for extra recording devices, making this truly compact 2-in-1 microphone a great option for your recording and audio needs. The four channel internal system allows you to record in stereo while simultaneously monitoring the mid and side microphones to hear the differences, a useful feature for mixing an ideal stereo signal from a wide, bidirectional recording.
Fuel and Features. The Zoom M3 has two different options for fuel: AA batteries or USB bus power. Battery life for both options will run you about 12 hours on a full charge. AA batteries are not included in this rental, but we have a few options for you here! Additionally included on this unit is a 3.5mm headphone output for real-time monitoring and a 3.5mm stereo line out for sending your audio directly to an external recorder, such as a camera audio input or a secondary field recorder. The M3 is fully compatible with microSD memory cards.
