Instant FM Music
Believing that many radio listeners seek a closer link between FM and their music players, ADSTech recently began shipping its Instant FM Music USB tuner. The small adapter plugs into a host computer and identifies each song played as broadcast through the device, creating a playlist that reflects actual track information. Users can also record shows and create separate files for each song, easing the process of transferring music to a CD or portable music player afterwards. The Instant FM can also recognize the RDS information embedded in many radio signals and can also record Internet-based stations, ADSTech says. Bundled with an external antenna and a traveling pouch, the Instant FM is immediately available for $49.
