With phantom-powered XLR inputs and 16bit/44.1kHz audio quality it looks like TuneStudio could be a useful little piece of kit. It also acts as an external USB sound card, allowing the input of audio from a PC source as well as output to a PC from any of TuneStudioâ€™s connector inputs.
A Belkin spokesperson had this to say, â€œTuneStudio is compact, portable, and tough enough to withstand life in a rehearsal room or in a garage. Bands can easily attach instruments and microphones to TuneStudio and record jam sessions directly onto an iPod. Podcasters can also use this device to record their shows either in a studio or on location.â€�
