File this one under useful. The iKey Plus is a portable USB recorder for your iPod, particularly of use for live audio recording.
Designed to work with the iPod or any external USB storage device, the iKey Plus can record live audio to MP3 or WAV format directly to a USB compatible storage device in real time. In real terms, that means you can record your vinyl to MP3 or WAV, record a live DJ set or record interviews or speeches. And you can record a live gig (if you’ve got permission).
The updated iKey now features an LCD display, Mic Input, Phono Pre-Amp, VU Meter Display, and Headphone Output, which all should help you get your recordings just right. Available now, you can pick one up for around £179.
