Add wireless control and timecode support to your Portacapture X6 or X8 multitrack recorder or your DR-10L Pro miniature field recorder with the TASCAM AK-BT1, an ultracompact Bluetooth adapter that plugs directly into the USB-A port of your recorder and lets you control vital functions from a mobile device.
The free Portacapture Control app, offered on iOS and Android platforms, provides convenient access to the recorder's transport functions, gain, mix adjustments, and other parameters, even when the recorder is at a distance—with a maximum Bluetooth range of 32.8 feet, depending on conditions. This app-based integration makes producing videos, podcasts, songs, and location audio faster and easier.
With the AK-BT1 Bluetooth dongle, the X6, X8, or DR-10L Pro is ready to wirelessly sync timecode with supported Atomos products, including the Ultrasync Blue. Timecode allows videographers to perfectly align audio recordings with video, even when there is no audio on the camera. Timecode is crucial when videographers are dealing with multicamera video shoots, and saves valuable time in postproduction.
