I’ve been recording audio for fun using a 2nd generation ipod nano & a couple of accessories, the Belkin TuneTalk Stereo & the xtrememac MicroMemo. (I switched from using the MicroMemo to the TuneTalk because the latter works much better with my microphones – the autogain balances out for phantom power or bias power, I forget.) Out of curiosity, I checked to see how well they work with various ipods:
MicroMemo TuneTalk ipod - 4th gen no no ipod - 5th gen untested works nano - 2nd gen works works nano - 3rd gen works works nano - 4th gen works ipod classic works works iphone no no iphone 3G no ipod touch no no touch - 2nd gen no response
There are other accessories that allow you to record – the ivoice (for touch & iphone, apparently) & the Griffin italk pro, at least – but I own neither, so haven’t tested those broadly. The italk pro worked well in a brief test with the nano 2nd gen & my microphones, at least.
Update (12/10): Tried the TuneTalk on a newer generation of ipods.No comments
