ALESIS PHONOLINK INTERFACE ENABLES EASY ARCHIVING

Cable Interface Turns Stereo Analog Line or Phono Signal Into USB Digital Output

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 14, 2010) – Alesis, a leading manufacturer of professional audio equipment and studio electronics, announces the PhonoLink, a stereo, analog-to-digital USB interface. Alesis will introduce the PhonoLink at the 2010 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, booth 6400, January 14–17.

The PhonoLink is Alesis’ latest addition to the AudioLink series of USB audio interfaces that enable musicians to connect analog audio sources directly to their computer and record them via a standard USB jack. The PhonoLink has stereo RCA inputs, which users can switch from line to phono level. Users can use the PhonoLink for converting music on records, tapes, or virtually any other source into digital audio wav or MP3 files.

The PhonoLink outputs studio quality 16-bit, 44.1 kHz digital audio thanks to its internal analog-to-digital conversion system. For archiving music from records, the PhonoLink features a built-in grounding terminal. For optimizing signal level, it has a convenient level control. The PhonoLink features plug-and-play connection for Mac and PC and is compatible with virtually all Mac and Windows class-compliant drivers and software.

“Many musicians have old collections of tapes and records in their basements,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Alesis. “The PhonoLink is an easy, all-in-one way to convert it for use on today’s digital playback systems.”

The PhonoLink will be available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers in January 2010.
