Alesis TwoTrack Handy Recorder : Review


Simplicity and quickness

It has been designed to be really easy and fast to use. It doesn't feature a complex menĂ¹ or editing functions, but only basic controls. So, it is very simple, with two condenser microphones and with the well-known Alesis quality.

Only the necessary minimum

It provides only a gain control and a led to avoid signal distortions. Everything is immediatly accessible, as you can see in this image.


Additional controls

Few things: the volume, some basic functions, the files organization, and the slot for the SD card, or SDHC. The same slot provides the USB port.

Additional controls

The tripod

It can be mounted on a tripod for a more comfortable recording. This option can be useful for a musician, for instance. It isn't included.



We must say that with a small additional cost you can buy other portable recorders with more functions than the TwoTrack. Anyhow, this Alesis product is valid.

    Gain can be adjusted manually or automatically, so to avoid distortion of the signal. Notwithstanding the price, rather low, it is equipped with some very useful additional features, as the tuner and the metronome.

  • DR-05
  • Tascam

    The Quick Menu lets you set the main parameters quickly and easily. The analog and digital circuits are separate, so to avoid low-frequency noise and distortions. 125dB SPL sensitivity for the built-in mics.

  • VN-7200
  • Olympus

    A product that can be the perfect solution for who is looking for a cheap device but with all the necessary for a good final result. The display is much large and the autonomy, really remarkable, is an important added value.
