There are thoughts, ideas and fragments that - for the sake of humanity - we need to record and be able to return to as a reference, as a seed for new thoughts or just to remember another time. TP-7 is built to record sound, music, interviews and important ideas with zero friction in the highest possible quality. A device engineered in every detail to do only one thing and to do it well. A dedicated piece of hardware for ideas, or just a dirty riff for you and your mates.
Intuitive muscle reflex control
TP–7 fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and lets your fingers naturally adopt the controls. the index finger triggers fast forward and the middle finger rewinds. your thumb records a memo, the pinky selects the mode. it's a genuinely rewarding man-machine experience.
tape reel sensation
the centre piece of the TP–7 is the motorised tape reel. a delicately engineered brushed motor with ball bearings, and a highly sensitive hall sensor that lets you virtually grab your recording. the reel is also used for scrubbing, to pause, menu navigation and as gentle visual feedback during playback and recording.
the side-mounted rocker allows you to quickly scrub through your audio. just press on the top edge to fast forward, and down to rewind. watch the wheel spin around and hear your tracks scrub in ’hyperspeed’.
transcription hell turned into transcription heaven
if you've ever experienced the process of transcribing recorded speech to text by hand, you'll know what we mean. a key feature of the TP–7 is its ability to streamline the process of turning audio into text. simply connect your phone to TP–7 via ble or usb, open the TP–7 app and press transcribe. job done!
off the record
picture yourself in an interview situation. the reel on the TP–7 is spinning slowly, the bright red record lamp is lit. both the reel and the lamp indicates that a recording is taking place. the interview is going quite well. the situation gets heated, you're suddenly asked some personal questions. in that moment, you gently place a finger on the reel and pause the recording, allowing you to continue the interview ‘off the record’.
the importance of zero friction.
(or how to remove steps from thought to action.)
let's compare TP–7 to the most common recorder today – the smartphone: once you've turned on and unlocked your phone, found the recording app and started recording, you've probably forgotten whatever you had in mind. when recording on TP–7: press the memo button and start talking.
inputs, outputs and 20 years of ideas
TP–7 features three stereo two-way jacks to be used as either inputs or outputs, for connecting external mics, headphones, studio monitors, or any other audio equipment like OP–1 field or TX–6, recording with all 6 stereo channels. use usb-c for multi-channel audio interface, midi, data transfer and charging, and ble and MFi for wireless connectivity. TP–7 also includes our 6.35 mm to 3.5 mm jack adapter. add to that 128 GB of internal storage and you can preserve 5 minutes of ideas a day for 20 years.
the field system
TP–7 is part of our ultra-portable sound recording and performance system. all battery-powered, rechargeable via usb-c and with full interconnectivity (midi and high resolution audio). compatible with iOS, macOS, and windows it's the most powerful, highest quality, portable system in the world 'as we know it'.
