Alesis introduced what the company is calling the first professional handheld digital stereo recorder for the iPod.
The ProTrack, which secures the iPod into its design, is engineered for direct-to-iPod stereo digital recording.
Features include two built-in condenser microphones, a pair of combination XLR – 0.25-inch inputs for connection for external microphones and line sources, and a universal dock for the iPod.
It also has LED signal indicators. Four AAA alkaline batteries provide four to five hours of operation, according to the company, and a threaded mount is integrated for tabletop use on a camera tripod. An AC power adapter comes with the device.
The ProTrack works with the fifth-generation iPod, the Classic, or the second- and third-generation Nanos.
It is scheduled for third-quarter availability; the company would not provide pricing.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
