Tossing another log onto the handheld record fire, Korg has introduced the Sound On Sound (SOS) handheld digital recorder.
The SOS records to microSD cards, with 16-bit/44.1 kHz BWF file performance. Korg estimates the SOS consumes 1 GB per 100 minutes of record time.
It features 100 DSP effects, 50 rhythm patterns, looping function, high-speed playback and onboard guitar, bass and chromatic tuners. A touchscreen and jog-shuttle dial facilitate operation.
There is an onboard microphone along with a 1/4-inch instrument input, 1/8-inch external mic input and a 1/8-inch stereo input. A headphone output and built-in speaker are also included.
For large operations Korg claims the SOS is able to handle an unlimited number of tracks. Expected price: $400.
