I was in the market for a cheap recording device that would let me record some conversations between two people, keeping each person's voice contained to a separate track. I also wanted something that would let me use XLR mics and would provide phantom power. I went to several stores and looked at.

I was in the market for a cheap recording device that would let me record some conversations between two people, keeping each person's voice contained to a separate track. I also wanted something that would let me use XLR mics and would provide phantom power. I went to several stores and looked at several field recorders (from Sony, Tascam, Edriol & MAudio) and some desktop digital multi-track recorders (Tascam, Fostex & Boss).

However, I then came across this little mixer/recorder from Belkin, costing several hundred dollars less than the other devices I had been looking at. I already had an iPod that will work with the Belkin recorder, so I figured I would give it a try.

I was immediately very impressed with the quality and design of the device. As it happened, I was running late to my first recording session, so I didn't have time to work with the Belkin before I had to use it for real. Fortunately, the Belkin was extremely simple to use. The controls are intuitive, and the mixing board is well-designed and easy to read. (I should mention that several of the other recorders that I looked at were extremely difficult to use, with lots of menus and settings that didn't make sense.)

I then downloaded my recordings and started working with the audio. The audio is recorded as uncompressed WAV files at 1411Kb/s. The sound quality was excellent. There was no hum/hiss from the board, the control knobs did not create any noise when adjusted, and the on-board compressor did its job (there is an adjustable compressor that will keep the audio within the limits of iPod's recording capabilities).

Although I think I will still get a field recorder for true portability, the Belkin works wonderfully as a desktop mixer/recorder.
