Note: Song Meter Mini will be released in March but you can already place an order!

The Song Meter Mini is an acoustic passive recorder for the long-term recording of birds, frogs and other vocal species. It is the successor of the popular SM4 from Wildlife Acoustics with similar specifications but then a lot cheaper and a lot smaller in size. A big difference, however, is that the Song Meter Mini can be operated via a smartphone or tablet with a BlueTooth connection. It also sends interim updates via the same connection to the free app on your device. You can download the "Song Meter Mini Configurator" app for free via Google Play or the Apple App store.

The Song Meter Mini has an optional second output so that you can also record in stereo.

The Song Meter Mini can record for many months on normal AA batteries: a total of 240 hours. If you use the 18650 lithium-ion batteries, you can collect no less than 1,200 hours of data.

The Song Meter Mini is of course also compatible with the Kaleidoscope software for further processing of your data.
