First of all, the palm-sized PalmTrack has a bunch of different recording modes, so you can tailor it to capture whatever you need to record each day. Use the 4-mic omni mode to capture surround-style sound of the whole band practicing in the room. Go with stereo mode when you just want to capture sound right in front of the PalmTrack — great for capturing your singer/songwriter ideas. You can even plug in your own mic or line-level gear into the 1/8" jack to expand your PalmTrack's recording capabilities.

On top of PalmTrack's flexible recording capabilities (up to 24-bit/48kHz WAV files or standard MP3s), it also has a bunch of built-in effects and processing to help you finalize your tracks. You can use chorus, delay, and reverb to get creative. More than that, you'll also appreciate the bass compensation tool that helps reduce the boomy proximity effect when you close-mic instruments and vocals. The PalmTrack's high-contrast mode makes it easy to see just what effects you're dialing in, even when you need to work in dimly lit environments.

After you made some recordings with PalmTrack, you can listen back to them with the built-in monitoring system or by plugging in a set of your own 1/8"-equipped headphones. When you're ready to transfer your files, just connect the Alesis PalmTrack to your computer via USB — or pull out the SD card and put it in your card reader.
