A machine for anyone who has ever heard the perfect sentence, riff or idea in the wild and wished they had a quality recording of it later, the tiny TP–7 is built to record sound, music, interviews and important ideas with zero friction in the highest possible quality. TP–7 fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and lets your fingers naturally adopt the controls. Your index finger triggers fast forward and the middle finger rewinds, while your thumb records a memo and the pinky selects the mode.A genuinely rewarding person-machine experience, the centerpiece of the TP–7 is the motorized tape reel: a delicately engineered brushed motor with ball bearings, used for scrubbing, to pause, for 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. If you've ever experienced the process of transcribing recorded speech to text by hand, you'll be thrilled by the TP-7’s 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 to get the job done.
