M-Audio Mobile MicroTrack 2496 ONLY $425.99 Great For Field Recording !

MicroTrack 2496

The Microtrack 2496 is the perfect field recorder for musicians, interviewers, etc.

The MicroTrack is a rugged high-fidelity mobile 2-channel digital recorder that records WAV and MP3 files to CompactFlash or microdrives—perfect for everything from professional field recording to corporate meetings, training, education and worship. Record via balanced line inputs or built-in high-fidelity microphone preamps complete with phantom power for studio-quality microphones. Connect MicroTrack to a PC or Mac via USB and simply drag and drop recordings to your computer for immediate editing or Web posting. Power derives from a lithium-ion battery, and the unit can recharge via the computer’s USB connection or USB power adapter. The MicroTrack combines quality beyond that of DAT recording with the convenience and cost-effectiveness of personal digital recorders for the ultimate solution in mobile recording.

One of the secrets to the MicroTrack’s compact size is that, like many of today’s digital cameras, it records to CompactFlash or microdrives. Recording capacity is based on the recording format selected and the size of the currently inserted media. An affordable upgrade to a 1GB CompactFlash card or microdrive, for example, will hold approximately 100 minutes of uncompressed CD-quality 16-bit stereo 44.1kHz WAV files. That same 1GB media will store 1500 minutes of stereo speech-quality MP3 audio at 96kbps. Of course, you can use and swap out whatever capacity media suits your needs.

Simple Transfers

You can record as many unique files as the capacity of your available storage allows. Then just connect MicroTrack to your PC or Mac via USB, and it appears as a USB mass storage device showing the unique identification number of each file. Just drag and drop the files to your computer’s hard drive and your audio is ready to edit and/or post to the Web. The included Audacity software even gives you the power to easily edit your files and convert between file formats.
