The Alesis MultiPort can record directly to your iPod, making it an incredibly convenient recording solution. No matter what you’re recording, you walk away with a track you can listen to anywhere!… While you can record to your iPod, you can record to your computer as well! The Alesis MultiPort connects to your computer via one USB port and sends audio straight into your favorite DAW – just like many other USB interfaces – yet it offers the convenience of iPod recording as well.
