I’ve been waiting for this for some time. I’ve always thought that a product like that would be perfect for taking a desk mix at a gig/rehearsal etc. Records at 16-bit/8kHz – I presume this is a limitation of the iPod itself. That’s not great – but worth looking into anyway. It certainly seems to fall well behind the iRiver (Damian bought one recently) – I assume that it does CD quality recording (16bit/44.1kHz).
The iPod, with from 15GB to 40GB capacity, is a handy portable storage device. Sean’s looking to use one for storing photos from a digital camera. It’s a pity it seems the recording capabilities are so ordinary.
