I’ve been wanting to start a new series of “Shows” where I cover tech topics of interest to me. Today, I’m covering using your iPod as a recording device using a free distribution of Linux for the iPod called podzilla. It’s very simple to install and use, and it will turn your normal headphone jack on your iPod into a Mic or Line-level recording input. Unfortunately, there’s no gain control, so recordings come out a bit quiet on my microphone, but you can adjust it up a bit in post-production without distortion. It’s definitely good enough for voice, not sure about music quality. Definitely worth it for an on-the-go recording solution.
