In a quiet corner of the impressive M-audio stand, were a couple of interesting gems. First up was the Flash Tracker, a dimunuitvie hand-held recorder, using Compact Flash and Micro-drive as media, it sports (according to preliminary specs):
2x TRS mic/line jack inputs
48V phantom power
3.5mm jack mic in with 5V power for electrec and back condenser mic
3.5mm headphone out
RCA stereo out
The unit really is palm sized and something that we are certainly lusting after. Unbelievably, this unit will be capable of 24-bit 96kHz recording and no doubt some popular compressed formats, we'll have to wait and see - this is the only one there is for now. Stay tuned for more details.
iLike iThis iControl iThingy
Tantalizing by it's presence but with very little (actually none) information, the iControl appears to be a Garageband control surface. With dedicated track volumes, transport and access to various parameters, this could be just the thing for the avid user of Apple's iLife component. No, one could tell us anything about it however, so you'll just have to look and wait like us.
