Hooke Lav
« on: September 15, 2020, 10:29:02 AM »
Not quite the usual kind of thing discussed here but interesting none the less - lav mic which can record to built-in storage.

https://tomsfinds.com/hooke-lav/a100-001-i1/

Launch price $98, normal price $179.

Will be interesting to see how well it actually works, actual specs and how good it sounds, and if there are sync issues.

They mention using two units simultaneously in two-channel "duet mode", yet do not mention stereo recording capability, which is suspicious.

"Fly solo or pair two Hooke Lavs to your smartphone via Bluetooth for 2-channel input to record and mix different audio."
"Use two Hooke Lavs to override the internal mic on your smartphone and take your livestream to the next level with incredible sound."

An email from them today mentions 8GB storage.  Yesterday it was said to have 16GB.  Perhaps they will halve the price.

Hey All! Anthony here, founder of Hooke Audio and inventor of Hooke Lav. Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions. In the beginning we had planned on using 16GB on internal storage, but we decided on 8GB. This will still give you over 24 hours of 24bit 48kHz audio recording internally. And just to note the internal storage is used to backup Hooke Lav recordings in real time, this allows for 0 dropout recordings when recording to smartphones. Thanks!

It launched today on Kickstarter.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hooke-audio/hooke-lav-a-sleek-wireless-mic-with-pro-grade-sound

They had a goal of raising $10,000. They're already at over $74,000.

Looks like the prototype design is mostly done. Needs to transition into manufacturing.

Uses a MEMS omni mic element with 69 dB S/N. Based on that, it's not designed for recording very quiet sound sources.

7 hour battery life.

Projected retail price: $179.

Projected first deliveries: March 2021, with regular deliveries in May.

For tapers: Its max SPL before obvious distortion isn't specified. In the video demo, as the speaker got closer to it, there was some obvious distortion in the recording. That could be an artifact of the prototype, the levels that were set, or the phone.

hi anthony!

does it use compression? a single channel of 24/48 wav is about 500MB/hr, so i would expect just under 16hrs with a (nominal) 8GB storage

also how do multiple devices clock with respect to each other?
