Tentacle Track E
Tentacle Track E
Pocket Audio Recorder
Professional sound recording.
Are you a musician having a live jam on the street, a professional sound mixer or a documentary filmmaker who can’t afford to miss the perfect shot? Or perhaps you’re an upcoming podcaster, a dedicated YouTuber or a traveling journalist: Whatever your project, record it professionally and easily with the TRACK E audio recorder.
Easy integration into your workflow.
One app. Countless possibilities.
Our Tentacle Setup App – which remotely controls everything except the weather – helps you enjoy seamless integration into your current workflow. Sync, control and monitor your TRACK E's audio via Bluetooth® on your mobile device. One screen. All the information you need.
Everything you need to get started. Straight out of the box.
Unbox your TRACK E and you can be ready to go in just three minutes. Here’s what you get: One pocked-sized TRACK E audio recorder, a multi-purpose lavalier microphone and a 16GB microSD card. The lockable mic input is compatible with any lavalier mic, that you might already call your own. Output timecode or playback your recordings via headphone out, charge your unit and transmit your data through the USB-C port really fast. It even comes with a funky black belt clip to free up your hands while recording.
32-bit floating-point technology.
Hit record and start creating.
Say goodbye to leveling and digital clipping. The TRACK E with its significantly enhanced dynamic range is a versatile, set-&-forget device that always delivers high quality audio. Users can treat audio like photographers use the RAW camera photo format. You don’t need to worry about the gain of the recorded audio. All details can simply be adjusted in post-production, significantly reducing pre-shoot preparation time. Recorded too low? Simply raise the volume without raising the noise floor.
100% lavalier microphone compatibility. Just clip and go.
The TRACK E comes packed with its very own broadcast-ready lavalier microphone. Yet, if you still prefer to use your own mics, you can – we also offer a range of suitable adapters to give you the flexibility you’re looking for. The microphone plugin power is 5 volts, so even more microphones are compatible.
Independent multi track recording.
The only limit is your creativity.
One TRACK E = one track. Now you can record as many audio tracks as you like. Simply sync all of your TRACK Es to create your own multitrack recordings from the individual mono tracks. Then just drop the synced audio into your editing system or prepare for further post-production with Tentacle Sync Studio – we include a free license with every TRACK E purchase.
World-renowned software. Simple synchronization. Perfect processing.
Our well-known and loved Tentacle Sync Studio software (for Mac) ensures seamless synchronization at all times. It also comes packed with tools to help you with the 32-bit and audio processing. In combination with your SYNC E and TRACK E, you now have a seamless and professional audio and video workflow. It’s time to get creative.
10 hours recording time.
For the longest days. And nights.
With at least 10 hours recording time, the long battery life will be by your side on the longest of shoots. And if you should find the battery running low, the TRACK E's super fast charge will ensure the boost you need to finish the working day.
