M-Audio Updates MicroTack OS


M-Audio kindly informed me this morning – being a user of the MicroTrack for our various location recordings and interviews, that they’ve just updated the driver (and presumably the OS) for the unit. The new update 1.4.1b2 applies to all OS platforms and fixes a bug where MP3 files recorded on the unit wouldn’t play in Windows Media Player. However, the email didn’t mention what I found in the release notes for the update which I think is important to be aware of: NOTE: This is a beta release. As such, we do not recommend using this release in a critical use environment. Such use is at your own risk. If you experience any issues with this release, please use our beta release support form to report it at:
http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support.betaform Those of you not familliar with the charms of this small portable device might enjoy some sales blurb:
The MicroTrack is a rugged high-fidelity mobile 2-channel digital recorder that records WAV and MP3 files to CompactFlash or microdrives—perfect for everything from professional field recording to corporate meetings, training, education and worship. Record via balanced line inputs or built-in high-fidelity microphone preamps complete with phantom power for studio-quality microphones. Connect MicroTrack to a PC or Mac via USB and simply drag and drop recordings to your computer for immediate editing or Web posting. Power derives from a lithium-ion battery, and the unit can recharge via the computer’s USB connection or USB power adapter. The MicroTrack combines quality beyond that of DAT recording with the convenience and cost-effectiveness of personal digital recorders for the ultimate solution in mobile recording.
