According manufacturer Alesis the iMultiMix 8 USB
is the "first mixer to fuse together professional quality mixing, 3 band per channel EQ, guitar/line inputs, built-in FX and iPod recording in a single, intuitive package." The cool thing is that once you've completed your recording you just sync the iPod as normal and your new masterpiece is automatically added to your iTunes library, where you can find it for further editing, etc. The recordings are made in stereo at 44.1 or 48kHz either direct to iPod or to your Mac via USB. Anyway, for the budding musician or multi-channel podcaster this looks like it could be a great piece of kit. The Alesis website lists the iMultiMix 8 USB
as "coming soon," but according to iLounge
it "is scheduled to ship in Q3 2007 for $499."
