Alesis Debuts ProTrack

By Lisa Johnston On Jul 7 2008 - 6:00am

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.
