November 16, 2007 An attractive option for bands chasing a simple, portable solution for capturing jam-sessions or podcasters aiming to enhance audio quality, Belkin’s 4-channel audio mixer enables the recording of high-quality digital sound directly to iPod.

The mixer allows the input of up to four different instruments or audio sources and records in 16-bit, 44kHz quality. Each of the channels feature 3-band EQ, pan and level controls and Phantom-power-enabled XLR inputs enable up to 60 dB of microphone gain. Designed to withstand the rigors of llife on the road, the device also features LEDs that indicate master audio level, power status and peak indication, plus one-knob compression control, and a stereo compressor that maintains levels within the recording limits of the iPod.

The first 4-channel device of its kind, the USD$399.99 TuneStudio recently captured a CES “Best of Innovations'' Award.
