micromemo.pngMicroMemo is a new voice recorder for the iPod that captures 16-bit audio at 22 kHz and 44 kHz to the hard drive.
Recording audio has tons of uses but it’s most beneficial to anyone that attends meetings, lectures, and interviews or otherwise needs a recording of an event.
MicroMemo attaches to the dock connector of the full-size iPod and requires no software. Once attached a simple interface appears on the iPod screen that allows you to either “record” or “save” a recording.
MicroMemo includes a flexible, detachable mic and you can attach any microphone with a standard 3.5mm plug. A built-in speaker allows you to listen to your recordings immediately.
The sound quality was very good as you can hear in the following sample files:
High Quality – 44kHz, WAV, 00:23, 3.9MB, (~170kb/sec)
Low Quality – 22kHz, WAV, 00:38, 1.6MB (~42kb/sec)
MicroMemo is available now from XtremeMac for US$60 in black and white is available to pre-order.
