Alesis has announced a new device called the ProTrack for recording stereo audio directly to an iPod. Alesis has dubbed their upcoming ProTrack as “the world’s first professional handheld digital stereo recorder for iPod”. While Belkin has their TuneStudio, it is not quite small enough to be considered a handheld device.
Key features of ProTrack include:
- Integrated iPod design
- Records to iPod (Classic or 5th Generation), or iPod nano (2nd or 3rd Generation)
- Professional connectors: two combination XLR – 1/4-inch inputs, 1/8-inch stereo output
- Supplies 48V phantom power to inputs when wall-powered
- Records 16-Bit, 44.1kHz or 22kHz stereo
- Two built-in condenser microphones for detailed recording
- Built-in microphones in XY configuration for optimum stereo image
- Switchable limiter ensures overload-free recordings even in unpredictable aural situations
- AC power adapter included
- Four AAA batteries provide up to five hours of operation
- Tripod stand mount for placing into ideal recording conditions
The Alesis ProTrack will be available in Q3-2008.
