8 January 2008 @ 9:24Belkin Announces TuneStudio Available for Order
If Belkin’s TuneTalk does not offer enough inputs or features for your music recording taste, then you might want to consider stepping up to the Belkin TuneStudio.
- Acts as an external USB sound card, allowing the input of audio from a PC source as well as output to a PC from any of its connector inputs
- Compact, portable, and tough enough to withstand life in a rehearsal room or in a garage
- Records directly to iPod in 16-bit, 44kHz quality
- Streams audio through built-in USB interface to and from a PC or Mac® computer
- Each of the 4 channels is equipped with 3-band EQ, pan and level controls
- Phantom-power-enabled XLR inputs provide up to 60 dB of microphone gain
- High-quality stereo compressor with makeup gain enhances audio dynamics and keeps audio levels within recording limits of the iPod
- Features one-knob compression control
- LEDs indicate master audio level, power status, peak indication, compressor activity, and recording status
Unfortunately, I don’t yet see a way to buy the TuneStudio from Belkin. Their site still says “coming soon.” You can pre-order the Belkin TuneStudio from Amazon though for $299.99.
Update: I received this message from Belkin after inquiring about the TuneStudio:
Thank you for contacting Belkin Technical Support.
The TuneStudio part # F8Z109 still has not been released yet. The release date was pushed back after the press release was issued. It may be available around the beginning of February but there is no guaranteed.
