The 4th generation Song Meter SM4 is a compact, weatherproof, dual-channel acoustic recorder capable of capturing large amounts of data from wildlife such as birds, frogs and aquatic life. It's smaller, lighter and easier to use than the SM3.
- You need a quieter device to record more of the sounds that you want.
- You need less size and weight.
- You want scheduling blocks.
The SM4 features two built-in microphones, innovative scheduling tools, large data storage, and low power consumption – a unique combination of features that provide the longest deployment times of any acoustic recorder available.
Cabled acoustic microphones, acoustic hydrophones and a GPS option are available. The SM3/SM4 Power Adaptor Cable connects the SM4 to alternative power sources. NiHM batteries and high capacity SD cards are available as well.
The SM4 features entirely new, built-in microphones that create higher quality recordings than those from all previous Song Meter recorders. Alternatively to the built-in microphones, the SM4 includes two microphone ports – giving you the flexibility to record additional data from a cabled microphone; a new SMM-A2 cabled acoustic microphone, and/or hydrophone.
If you need to record two sources of audio at the same time, take advantage of the SM4's dual channel feature. Record in stereo or mono using the built-in microphones, or connect one or two cabled microphone/hydrophones. Adding additional runs of cable to the external microphone give you the ability to capture audio from far-off wildlife such as birds in the forest canopy, or frogs at a nearby pond.
The SM4 features new power circuitry that significantly increases deployment time over the SM3 – up to 400 hours of recording time using internal batteries. In Sleep Mode, between scheduled recordings, the SM4 uses almost no power, allowing it to remain idle for months – meaning longer deployments, and fewer trips into the field.
When deploying multiple recorders, use a single GPS accessory to automatically set the date, time and location settings of all recorders. The GPS accessory can also be attached to log the recording locations and path for mobile transects.
The SM4's new Quick Start menu and Scheduler feature are an industry first. The SM4 comes with out-of-the box recording programs; including daytime, nighttime, and continuous recording schedules. Simply choose schedule and press the Start button. The SM4's new Scheduler features makes it easy to create custom schedules that suit your exact needs.
The SM4 has two SD card slots that accept SDHC and SDXC cards. When fitted with two 512GB cards, the SM4 can store over a terabyte of data. In the future, when higher capacity cards come to market, the SM4 will store even more.
The SM4 features an integrated headphone jack to monitor activity in real-time.
The Song Meter SM4 was designed for use in extreme weather conditions – from jungles and deserts to parts in between. In fact, we're so confident that the SM4 can endure the most extreme environmental conditions, we back it with a 3 year warranty. That means you can focus on research, not equipment.
