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.

  • Tascam

    Clearly, a product for the musician, above all a guitarist. It is equipped with an amp simulator, 55 effects, the overdubbing function, a drum machine, a low cut filter, and an analog limiter. It is compatible with the MP3 ID3 tags (up to 2.4 version).

  • ICD-SX750
  • Sony

    It can work with two batteries, that can be alkaline or rechargeable. Two formats: WMA and MP3, up to 750 hours (LP mode), or 35 hours (MP3). It lacks a slot for an SD card and the price is excessive.

  • DR-1
  • Tascam

    Many advanced functions for the editing, like the "Vocal Cancel" and the Overdub. Moreover, a low cut filter, an analogic limiter and a control for the Gain. A good product.
