Designed to suit a wide range of content creators ranging from solo YouTubers to small video crews, the Deity BP-TRX is a flexible microphone recorder and wireless transmitter/receiver with timecode input and output capabilities. The compact, metal unit records to a microSD card, allowing it to be used as a standalone pocket audio recorder. In addition, you can pair it with additional BP-TRX units or a DUO-RX (both available separately) as part of a remote-controllable, camera-mountable, or bag-suitable digital wireless microphone system—with back-up recording capabilites if RF interference is encountered.

The compact BP-TRX easily clips to talent via a removable belt clip and features a locking 3.5mm input connector to accommodate the supplied omnidirectional lavalier microphone; a foam windscreen and lapel clip are also included. Input gain is adjustable from -12 to +36 dB, while the Guard Rail Analog Limiter keeps the signal from clipping and distorting if the source gets too loud—letting you place the recorder in the talent's pocket without worrying about sudden level changes. The unit records audio at a 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution to a microSD card (available separately) with a maximum capacity up to 128GB.

The BP-TRX can be used as a digital wireless transmitter in the 2.4 GHz spectrum at a range of up to 328' and paired with up to four additional BP-TRX units or a DUO-RX on the receiving side. To record from a BP-TRX in receiver mode, connect its locking 3.5mm output to your camera's 3.5mm input using the included coiled cable. The unit can record to the microSD card while transmitting, giving you a clean audio take if there is interference in the wireless transmission.

The transceiver design allows for a wide variety of uses, including IEM and camera-hopping applications. What's more, it enables remote control over numerous parameters on the transmitter, including input levels, low-cut filter settings, and RF output adjustments, all remotely from the receiver. You can even engage the on-board recording feature remotely without interrupting a take.

The onboard SMPTE timecode generator also outputs to the 3.5mm connector, allowing you to use it as a master clock for additional BP-TRX units and other devices that support timecode. A timecode sync and audio cable is included that lets you record both signals to an external device. The unit jam-syncs to incoming code via the same locking 3.5mm input used for the microphone. 

Power is supplied by a built-in rechargeable battery, and the unit operates for up to 12 hours when used in transmitter or receiver modes, up to 21 hours in record mode, and up to 25 hours as a timecode-only box. The USB Type-C charging port also functions as a stereo audio interface for Mac and Windows computers. A charging cable and removeable 1/4-wave antenna are included.

Dropouts and Interference nonstop

I've been using these for a week straight in the middle of farmland in Montana with no cellphones on and only one wireless lav running, and I'm still getting nonstop dropouts and horrible interference, despite cycling through all the freq options. They're completely unusable except for the internal record... Only problem is I've only used that feature a handful of times and I've already had a corrupted recording file. Wasted hours and hours of time on set this week.

Everything You've Always Wanted In A Lav Mic System!!

By s
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-26

It's not just one of the best lav mics available today, but it's also an audio recorder!! Not only that, but it can simultaneously record internally to a MicroSD card AND transmit the audio to a receiver!!! NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT'S ALSO A TIME CODE GENERATOR!!!!! Everyone needs one of these immediately!! Other stuff: You can pair it directly to another BP.TRX, so one will transmit and one will receive. You can output directly from the BP.TRX into camera, with the supplied cables. It comes with a 3.5 to 3.5 cable, a 3.5 to SDI and XLR (it's not a splitter, as the SDI is for time code). IT COMES WITH A LAV MIC!! (and it's pretty decent!) It's also quite small, fits in your palm; I would say slightly larger than a Senheisser G3. Everything I saw online depicted, what I thought was a much larger unit, but it's small! It has a solid metal housing, so I'm sure it can be sat on a bunch. I wouldn't say it's as solid as a Lectrosonics, but VERY solid. The BP.TRX also has an ANALOGUE Limiter, to prevent peaking!! AND IT'S ONLY $250.00!!!!!!! Cons (because no one will believe the awesome unless you give them cons): The sides have sharp corners, not the top and bottom, but the sides. It may be uncomfortable to talent, if used for long periods. (This was a first impression of actress, as I asked her opinion of the new lav mic. Inside a lav mic strap, the corners are not a issue. This is so minor compared to what you get). Note: Deity licensed the technology to simultaneously record and transmit an audio signal from Zaxcom, like what they use on their A10, as used on big budget Hollywood films; it lists it right in the back of the unit. Conclusion: I bought one and am VERY happy with it. I plan on only buying this lav mic in the future.

Great value for money

I REALLY wanted these to work. But unfortunately, they're simple not a reliable product. I'd advise that you save your time and find a different option. Some of the issues I experienced are present in other prosumer wireless mics. Wireless interference, dropouts, pairing issues etc. even so, I've used many different systems and none of them had as many and as frequent problems as these. Worse, I was relying on the self-recording feature to mitigate some of the wireless issues. I hoped that even if I had issues with the wireless, I would have a safe back-up recording. Not the case. In four days of filming, I had two different corrupt files. In addition, many of the recordings that did not corrupt had electronic noises. (sounded like digital communication of some kind) It's also worth mentioning that I tested these fairly extensively before going out on the field. I had read about other peoples issues and wanted to avoid them. In bench testing, I didn't experience ANY problems, but once the transmitters were in a pocket, it in proximity to a human body, all the problems started. I really hope that Deity improves these because they could really be an enormous benefit. I would gladly pay double the price if the system worked properly!

I own set of Tentacle Sync TRACK E Pocket Audio Recorder with Lavalier Mic . They support timecode. Can this device be used with the tentacle audio recorder as a timecode generator ?
Asked by: Joel
Not sure what you mean by "with the tentacle audio recorder". In terms of timecode, once you jam them to each other they'll all keep them same time for around 24hrs. I don't think the track E can output timecode like the sync e (I know it can receive timecode via the mic input) so either the BP-TRX would need to be the master to jam it to the Track E, or you use the phone app to sync a Track E AND a Sync E and use the sync E to jam each bptrx in turn. If you also meant does it work as a transmitter for the Track E to monitor then yes it would (except in the US where the headphone is disabled while the track e is recording).

If I wanted to use a mic other than Deity's ...

If I wanted to use a mic other than Deity's lavalier with this, would it need to be compatible with Sennheiser's or Sony's locking 3.5mm connector?
Asked by: Dale
You will want to use a lavalier mic that is compatible with Sennheiser transmitters, not Sony. The locking 3.5mm connectors used for the Sennheiser and Sony transmitters are the same, but they are wired differently. Sennheiser uses a standard wiring configuration while Sony uses a different configuration. Any of the lavalier microphones that are wired for compatibility with Sennheiser transmitters should also work with the Deity Microphones BP-TRX recorder/transceiver.
