DICTATION MACHINE
A dictation machine is a sound recording device most commonly used to
record speech for later playback or to be typed into print. It includes digital voice
recorders and tape recorders

M-AUDIO MICROTRACK II
The M-Audio MicroTrack's LCD display and menus are controlled by a jog-switch on the
right.

It's easy to set up a recording via the large, toggle switches on its front, and you can
either use the small, dual-mic 'T' plug-in supplied with it or plug two microphones of your
choice into separate 0.25in jack sockets.

We were disappointed with the quality of recordings: they all showed noticeable hiss.
When listening to third-party MicroTrack II samples from the web, though, we couldn't
hear the hiss so perhaps ours is a rogue sample.

Even so, we reckon that the MicroTrack II is a bit pricey, and we're putting a question
mark over its performance.
