Recording for New iPods?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
There's been a number of posts at in the past couple days demonstrating that the new iPods actually do have recording capabilities, it just hasn't been built into the current interface.

According to the reports, mono-recording is possibly through the headphone jack while the line out on the dock can also be used as a stereo line in. Here's a quick excerpt.


To record right now:

Plug in earphones

Activate Diagnostic Mode - Reset (hold MENU and PLAY) and hold down PREVIOUS, NEXT and CENTER buttons at Apple logo - Release buttons and you'll hear a chirp and Diagnostic mode will appear

Use Next button to navigate to "J. RECORD"

Speak into Left earphone when "BEGIN..." appears

You'll get about 6 sec. of record time and then "DONE"

Press center button for playback

Press Play/Pause to return to list of tests
