There isnt much info on this at the moment, but it does look like this is the first multitrack recorder for the iPhone. It appears very simple indeed at the moment, and I’m expecting as it is called a “lite” version that there may at some point be a more functionally rich version, but I get we’ll have to wait and see. The developer’s site has no information at present so this really is early days.

MeTeoR, the multi-tracker recorder for Windows Mobile has been updated to version 1.1. The main features added to this version are;
1) The ability to make a clip from a selection of a larger clip.
2) A new monitor tab adds the ability to control the input gain and monitor stereo out.
3) The new markers function.
I’ve just loaded this onto my Palm Treo 750v and it is very impressive indeed. I really like the monitor function.
Thanks to Chris for the details on this recorder. It does look good. Here’s what SoundonSound have to say:
The LS10 is a portable stereo audio recorder that can capture uncompressed (linear PCM) WAVs at up to 24bit/96kHz. It’s also capable of recording and playing back MP3s and WMA files, and users can even listen back to recordings using built-in stereo speakers. As you can see from the picture, the LS10 has a pair of microphones located at the top of its body, but an external mic can be plugged in via a mini-jack socket on the side of the device. Data can be recorded to the LS10’s 2GB of on-board memory, although there’s a slot for inserting an SD or SDHC card, into which a card of up to 32GB can be inserted.
Front panel controls include the expected play, record, stop and skip features, as well as buttons for entering and navigating menus. An A-B Repeat button enables you to loop a section of audio that’s being played back, making transcribing slightly less painful and mastering that guitar lick a breeze! The large backlit LCD displays a reasonably large bargraph meter, as well as information on the current status of the machine.
Down the sides of the slim aluminium body are thumb wheels for controlling the input and output volume of the device, and switches for adjusting the on-board mics’ sensitivity and engaging an automatic gain control (AGC) function. There’s also a stereo line-level input on mini-jack.
FutureMusic has a couple of stories on new pocket recorders. One from Yamaha called the the Pocketrak 2G, a compact recorder featuring 2GB of built-in memory, easy USB file transfer, and Steinberg Cubase AI DAW software.
The other is the snappily named Sony ICDUX70 and ICDUX80 digital recorders / portable MP3 players. These new models have 1GB / 2GB respectively of internal storage space and a USB 2.0 port for transferring and recharging.
M-Audio are releasing their MicroTrack II next month. I have to admit that it is a nice looking recorder, but expensive. Here’s what their site says about it.
“The redesigned MicroTrack II brings even more professional features to the original high-fidelity mobile digital recorder that’s been embraced by audio and film professionals worldwide. With an extended input gain range, analog input limiter, 48V phantom power, faster file transfer rate, seamless recording of files beyond 2GB in size and other enhancements, MicroTrack II delivers the highest quality mobile recording experience available today. Simply record WAV (BWF) and MP3 files to CompactFlash or Microdrives through balanced line inputs or built-in microphone preamps—then drag and drop recordings to your computer via high-speed USB 2.0 for immediate editing or Web posting. MicroTrack II is perfect for a wide variety of applications including field recording, capturing live shows, songwriting, education and more.”
Recording Gear News: Zoom PS04 Digital Palm Top Recorder
A good brief summary of the Zoom PS04. I’m still thinking about that new Boss Micro-BR, but my friend Paul tells me that the Zoom is better and has more features.
