Cable tester

Clark Wire and Cable

Pro Aud1: The Pro Aud1 cable tester generates two test tones (1kHz or 440kHz) at three levels (+4dBu, -10dBV, and mic levels). Connections include XLR, 1/4" phone, RCA, 1/8" mini, TT and MIDI. It tests for opens, shorts and crossed wires, and features a memory hold function to easily identify intermittent connections. The Pro Aud1 shows which input pins are connected to each output pin by lighting its LED in the cable wiring display. While in cable test mode, pressing Reset stores the current cable wiring display and clears the Intermittent LEDs. If any change occurs in the wiring displayed, the intermittent LED corresponding to any input pin that had the change will light and stay lit until the next time Reset is pressed. The test tone mode is intended for use in checking audio system integrity and the rough setting of signal levels only and not for use as a voltage standard. During this mode, pins two and three are monitored for external dc voltage as commonly supplied to microphones. The phantom LEDs will light at any time the presence of a dc voltage greater than 5V is detected.

Portable recorder


DR-100: The Tascam DR-100 portable recorder targets recordists who need a reliable handheld recorder with advanced recording features. Building on the DR-1 recorder, the DR-100 has a pair of XLR mic inputs with phantom power for pro condenser microphones. In addition, the DR-100 has four built-in electret condenser mics — two cardioid and two omni — and a built-in speaker for playback. It's powered either through an included lithium-ion rechargeable battery or easy-to-find AA batteries. Analog line inputs and outputs are also available, as well as a mic stand mounting hole for recording flexibility. Other production-savvy features of the DR-100 include a wireless remote control and audio editing features. Playback can be looped or slowed down without changing the pitch, and locate points can be added while recording. The DR-100 records to SD or SDHC cards, and a 2GB card is included with the unit.
