A new device called the SLUG has been developed by SoundSlug and its
founders Kenny & Seena, which has been designed to enable you to rip
any audio with ease. The Slug simply plugs into your headphone and mic ports and allows you to record any audio from your computer or any external devices such as MP3 players or mobile phones.
The SLUG will even record streaming music and comes supplied with a
software suit that will automatically split tracks based on silence, so
if you record from streaming music the software will automatically
create each track as a separate file. It also includes a feature which
deletes tracks under a certain length, allowing you to block out
advertisements. Watch an introductory video created by its designers after the jump.
The legality of the device is still a
little clear as it will allow you to record anything. But the SLUG
device is currently on the Kickstarter website and is currently looking
for pledges. So if you think the idea is something you could use jump
over to make a pledge.
