Record Multiple Instruments On Your iPod


Currently on show at CES in Las Vegas and Macworld Expo in San Francisco is Belkin’s new TuneStudio for 5th generation video iPods. The company say that it is the first four-channel audio mixer that lets you create high-quality digital recordings directly onto your iPod. This mixer allows the input of up to four different instruments or audio sources, and records the audio onto your iPod for instant playback.
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 TuneStudio’s connector inputs.
A Belkin spokesperson had this to say, “TuneStudio 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.�

    Looks like a great gizmo - but does it just record to stereo right? Would be even better if it did four track recording/playback..
