[NAMM] Alesis USB Recording Kit
Alesis announced the USB Recording Kit, a computer-recording system, which is available now.
Consumers can connect the pair of AM2 condenser microphones to the iO|2 digital-audio interface to record stereo audio into their computer using the included Steinberg Cubase LE 4 digital audio workstation software. They can monitor sessions and playback with the output of the M1Active 320 USB speakers. No extra sound cards, no special connectors or adapters and no software drivers are needed. All the user needs is a Mac or PC with two available USB ports and a pair of common microphone cables.
The AM2 stereo microphone set contains a matched-stereo pair of AM2 condenser microphones, an XY-stereo mount, stand clips, windscreens and a carry case. The low profile, miniature cardioid condensers offer a switchable pad and high-pass filter.
The iO|2 is a flexible digital audio interface with two XLR-1/4-inch combination inputs and 48V phantom power. The inputs enable users to plug in microphones, instruments and line-level inputs for recording of guitar, bass, keyboards and more. The iO|2 sends CD-quality 16-bit, 44.1 kHz digital audio to the user's computer via USB and stereo signal to the user's headphones.
The M1Active 320 USB studio monitors feature one-inch silk-dome tweeters and three-inch lightweight woofers and both analog and USB inputs designed for clean, low-distortion signal flow. The speakers have additional inputs, enabling users to employ them as a standalone recording solution when connected via USB. When used within the bundle, the speakers' inputs add to the input count of the system.
Pricing & Availability
The USB Recording Kit is available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers at an MSRP of $399.99 and an estimated street price of $299.99.
