TC Applied Technologies released an update to their audio drivers that are used with the em32 Eigenmike® microphone array. The new TCAT driver version 4.2.1 now officially supports OS X El Capitan (10.11.x) and Windows 10. To get the latest TCAT audio driver update for the Eigenmike® em32 please go to the Download page and look in the Utilities table.
A windscreen is available for the em32 Eigenmike®. For outdoor use it is recommended to shield the Eigenmike® array with an acoustically transparent windscreen if recording is done in an environment where wind might be present.
The windscreen is specially designed to easily connect to em32 Eigenmike® arrays that have the aluminum shaft mount at the bottom of the em32 array. The windscreen was designed to be acoustically transparent, light in weight and fold flat to make transport easy.
