XtremeMac today announced a new version of its MicroMemoâ„¢ recorder, designed specifically for the iPod nano 2G, as well as a lapel microphone called MemoMicâ„¢ that works with all versions of MicroMemoâ„¢. Together, these devices enable digital recording of interviews, lectures, meetings and more, directly to the iPod nano. Once uploaded to a computer, the audio can be used to create podcasts, multimedia presentations and more.
MicroMemoâ„¢ for iPod nano offers one-touch recording via on-screen menus and controls. The device features a flexible, detachable microphone and a built-in speaker for instant playback without headphones. The included microphone can be detached, exposing a 3.5 mm jack which accepts input from other microphones, or line-in devices such as digital mixers. MicroMemoâ„¢ attaches to the bottom of the iPod nano via the dock connector and a toggle switch on the unit selects between microphone, line-in sources, or headphones. MicroMemoâ„¢ is built to complement the shape and aesthetics of the new iPod nano and is available in black or silver anodized aluminum that matches the iPod nano for a suggested retail price of $59.95.
In combination with MicroMemoâ„¢, the MemoMicâ„¢ lapel microphone can be used to record lectures and presentations directly into the iPod or iPod nano with hands free convenience. MemoMicâ„¢ simply plugs into MicroMemo’s 3.5 mm jack and clips on to a jacket, shirt or tie. This allows the presenter to slip the iPod into a pocket and move around while recording. MemoMicâ„¢ is available in black at a suggested retail price of $29.95.
â€œThe MicroMemo for iPod with video has been very well received by industry experts and consumers alike,â€ said Gary Bart, CEO of XtremeMac. â€œIt has earned high praise in reviews for exceptional recording quality and design, and in fact was just named iPod audio recorder of the year by iLounge.com. We have taken the same features and performance, and created a version that is perfect for the new iPod nano.â€
MemoMicâ„¢ is now shipping via the XtremeMac website. MicroMemoâ„¢ for iPod nano is available for pre-order and will begin shipping in early December. Both products are available at www.xtrememac.com and will be available in major retail outlets this holiday season.
