Not A Hack: ProTracker Turns Your iPod Into Pro Audio RecorderAlesis ProTrack is a buddy device for the iPod turning it into a Pro Audio digital recorder.Â Not that many of use would need up to 160GBs of high quality audio recording, but it’s out there if you need it.Â The Alesis ProTrack includes 2 combo XLR input jacks for in line mic recording [or other line recording] that will digitally record those spoken word masterpieces at 16-bit, 22kHz or 44.1kHz stereo. The ProTrack offers up 1/8 output stereo connection along with limiter and volume control.
Designed for any on-spot location the ProTrack will run solid for five hours with just four trip-A batteries.Â The little guy is also threaded for tripod mounting to set it & forget it.
ProTrack is ideal for capturing sound effects, recitals, jam sessions, speeches, interviews, rehearsals, performances, meetings, lectures, notes-to-self, or any other audio material directly to iPod. It will be available from pro audio dealers Q3-2008.The ProTrack is due out in 30-45 days (although Alesis is notories for pushing back release dates) with an undisclosed price tag [damn].
