Edison, NJ (November 4, 2005)–In a move that places tremendous recording power in the hands of consumers, iKEY-Audio, a division of Gemini Sound Products, introduces the iKEY, the first portable USB recorder that enables consumers to record live audio and convert it into high quality MP3 and WAV files that record directly onto iPod or other USB compatible storage devices.
From music and concerts to live speeches and seminars, the iKEY is a consumer-centric device that is capable of capturing an audio signal in real-time and converting it into MP3 and WAV format. The iKEY delivers quality recorded sound without relying on complicated computer programs and software.
The iKEY is extremely user-friendly and easy to operate. Consumers simply connect a cable from their headphone jack, CD player or other output source to the iKEY, connect the iKEY to a USB storage device such as an iPod, select a digital audio format, and hit record; it’s that simple. The audio is saved in either MP3 (with a choice of 128, 192 or 256 kbps bit rate) or WAV format and can be immediately replayed on playback devices. The iKEY has an MSRP of $229.99.
“The iKEY is satisfying consumer demand for an efficient way to record quality audio,” stated Artie Cabasso, Gemini’s chief executive officer. “Whether consumers are interested in recording concerts, meetings or church sermons, the iKEY’s compact design, easy connectivity and ease of use makes it the ideal product for consumers to record.”
