My Microtrack broke!

I love my Microtrack 24/96 portable digital audio recorder which I bought a few months ago, as my post in June not so subtly (nor concisely) illustrates.

It’s been the perfect recording device when on the move. I’ve made quite a few podcasts with this cool gadget, the last one being in Sweden last week. I used it to record some conversations at the Edinburgh conference on Wednesday which I hope to get posted here as podcasts by the weekend.

So imagine my dismay when I switched the Microtrack on yesterday morning, and got no screen display. The device works just fine, but with no display. The light blue backlight works but no text shows on the screen.

As it’s still under warranty, I contacted M-Audio support via their website. Completed the web form and sent it off. Received an automated email reply acknowledging the form.

Nothing more yet. I do hope I hear from them very soon indeed.

Back to the trusty iRiver IFP-790 in the meantime…
