M-Audioâ€™s MicroTrack II 2-track mobile recorder has been embraced across the digital media production spectrumâ€”from cutting-edge music producers and Hollywood sound designers to top-shelf video game developers and photojournalism agencies, to songwriters and amateur filmmakers to worship leaders and audio engineers! The MicroTrack II is flexible and portable, offering reliability and great sound quality in any given situation.
HowAudio.comâ€™s newest tutorial on the MicroTrack II is available FREE in its entirety on the HowAudio.com site. Over 35 minutes in length, this tutorial covers the basics of using the MicroTrack II, plus in-depth coverage of the Hardware/Software Controls, System, Settings, Options and Files Menus, Recording Options from Selecting An Input and Setting Levels, to Connecting To A Computer and File Transfers to iTunes, etc. Veteran engineer Jeff Dykhouse, and the tutorialâ€™s author, also put the MicroTrack II through various applications, such as recording guitars, drums, piano, Foley sounds at the beach, on a farm, on a motorcycle, and more.
â€œWith so many digital recorders on the market today,â€� says Dykhouse, â€œthis video will help you discover the best of the best on the market today. Even though it is quite simple to use, the MicroTrack II does have a lot of additional options and features, which are highlighted in this tutorial. And since this is not your usual piece of recording gear, it seemed appropriate to get out of the studio to test the MicroTrack II in various situations, so we took it everywhere and recorded everything from music to machinery. The MicroTrack's lightweight and small size made it easy to drop in a pocket in case the perfect audio opportunity arises.
