iPod Portable Recording/karaoke Studio

More and more people are recognising that the iPod is not just an iconic, slightly-passé DAP but an ideal way to record your weekend band.  The MusicJam holds an iPod and simultaneously plays music and records through the XLR socket (they even include a microphone), adding digital effects should that be your bag.

 

There's also free software which turns your iPod into a tiny karaoke machine, displaying lyrics and recording your wretched warblings so that you can upload them to the interweb and get featured on the next series of American Idol.  Priced at $229, it comes with the iPod connector cable, RCA cables, AC adaptor, and music stand clamp and promises studio quality sound.
