News Cakewalk UM-1G

Cakewalk announces a new line of four cable-based interfaces designed to easily connect musical instruments and other components to a computer.


The three MIDI interfaces and one audio interface hardware solutions introduced today are designed for a wide range of digital music creators — from hobbyists to professionals — who need to connect multiple instruments, MIDI devices, or other equipment to a computer.

Each product will have a MSRP of under $100 US and be usable with both a Mac and PC. They are all USB-bus powered, requiring no AC adaptor and affording users enhanced mobility for recording on the go.

The new UM-1G, UM-2G, and UM-3G MIDI interfaces are designed to be affordable solutions to easily connect MIDI devices with a computer through a USB connection. Each MIDI interface:
  • Is a compact, cable-style interface with a sleek form factor
  • Is Mac and PC compatible
  • Incorporates an independent MIDI OUT/THRU hardware selection switch for each output, providing functionality even if your computer is turned off
  • Provides FPT (Fast Processing Technology) for fast, stable MIDI data transmission, as well as lower latency performance through FPT’s Advance Driver mode
  • Offers standard OS-based driver mode for instant connection to computers even when drivers are not available

Other highlights of the new MIDI Interfaces include:

UM-1G:
  • 1-In/1-Out MIDI port (male), with LED indicators for MIDI I/O signal monitoring
  • MIDI Check switch for quick troubleshooting of MIDI connections
  • MIDI cables are engraved with “Connect to MIDI In” and “Connect to MIDI Out” labels for no confusion when connecting devices
  • Designed for hobbyists who want to connect a MIDI keyboard to a computer, or musicians who need MIDI connectivity to control or record music with a computer
  • Ideal for small studios or academic settings where only one MIDI device will be connected in close proximity to the computer
  • In live performance settings, use the UM-1G to control a synth, drum machine, MIDI light set-up, or master recording console

UM-2G:
  • Features 2-In/2-Out MIDI ports (female), 32 channels of MIDI to control hardware and software
  • Provides ability to connect multiple MIDI keyboards, sound modules, control surfaces, and other devices to a computer
  • Designed for musicians, producers or recording engineers with more than one MIDI device in a small studio or portable MIDI configuration

UM-3G:
  • 3-In/3-Out MIDI Ports (female)
  • Controls up to 48 channels of MIDI equipment
  • Expandable design allows you to daisy-chain up to three UM-3G interfaces providing nine total MIDI inputs and outputs without the need for additional USB Ports
  • Advanced Driver mode uses FPT (Fast Processing Technology) to ensure low-latency, even with three UM-3G interfaces daisy-chained together
  • Up to 3 units can be rack mounted via Roland RAF-70 kit, available separately
  • MIDI interface for the mid- to larger-sized studio
  • Out or Thru selectable switches built-in; select between MIDI Out and MIDI Thru for each output port
  • Designed for live settings using multiple MIDI applications, including traditional instruments, synths, sequencers and live sound, lighting, and special effects

The UA-1G is a 1 Stereo In/1 Stereo Out USB Audio Interface. Highlights include:
  • 24-bit/96kHz audio quality
  • Low latency ASIO 2.0 performance (PC); UA-1G is also WDM (Windows Vista, Windows XP) and Core Audio (Mac OS X) compatible
  • Large Input Level knob for easy control while recording
  • Includes Cakewalk’s SONAR LE digital audio workstation for high-quality music recording, mixing, editing, and publishing
  • Contains high-end A/D and D/A converters for accurate recording and playback
  • An electret condenser microphone input, similar to, but higher quality than the “MIC-IN” on most internal soundcards
  • Headphone output with volume control to quickly and easily listen to audio from your computer
  • A 1/4" jack with Hi-Z switch option which is ideal for recording high-impedance instruments like electric guitar or bass
  • S/PDIF optical I/O
  • Designed for use with a laptop in mobile or portable environments, whether it’s the tour bus, hotel lobby, rehearsal studio or and even at home
  • Hobbyists can use the UA-1G to record tapes or vinyl to a computer, or for higher-quality audio connection of their computer to their home entertainment system
