Alesis’s Protrack allows you to record stereo audio directly to your iPod. The Protrack’s pair of cardioid condenser microphones captures 16-bit digital audio in either 44.1kHz or 22kHz. The built in switchable limiter ensures your recordings are distortion free. Files are automatically dated and stamped while recording ensuring accurate organization of your recordings. A pair of 1/4 XLR jacks make the Protrack studio ready by providing connections for professional mixing devices. An illuminated LED-level enables the user to keep an eye on metering even in dark surroundings. You can check out your own recordings through the 1/8 inch headphone jack.
