nd Nano have 16/44 wav going on.

similar to the iPad) once Windows 8 has been launched this fall.

 of the conventional Windows applications are however not suited very well =
for touch screen operation. The free Avisoft-SASLab Lite (and Pro) software=
 ( alreay provides a number of optimiz=
ations for touch screen operation.

dio interfaces directly without additional external power supplies.
