Intempo has introduced The Rebel music sampling system.

Rebel is an FM radio that will automatically record songs played, cutting out DJ chat, ads and news, once the FM radio is tuned into a station.  The product uses PopCatcher technology which automatically records music over a 24-hour period, saving tracks as MP3 files. 

If a song is repeated it will just save the optimal version and can record up to 40 songs which can then be sent across to your Mac for syncing with an iPod or iPhone. The system is equipped with a line-in to connect and record from digital or internet radio.  

Available in two colours - red or black, Rebel costs £69.99 and will be available next month from leading online and high-street electrical retailers.

"At Intempo it’s all about the music and Rebel is all about getting easy access to the music you love," said Katie Richards, marketing manager at Intempo.

Rebel needs to sample music on a radio station for approx. 12-36 hours in order to record at optimal levels.
