This is it… the iTalkPro

Well, I’ve been waiting for this ever since I bought my first 3G iPod a couple years ago. We’ve known for a while that the new 5G iPods support high quality voice recordings, but up until now there’s not been a way to actually make recordings.

All that changed today, when Griffin announced the iTalkPro.

It’s powered by the iPod, has built-in mics, software gain controls, and can record CD quality stereo sound. No word on whether you can hook up an external mic or monitor while recording. This probably won’t replace your pro flash recorder, but if you carry an iPod around already, it might be a nice accessory to bring along.
