Winter NAMM Show Wrap-up
Every year, in January, the musical instrument industry gets together in Anaheim, CA to show off its latest new gear. This year the Alesis booth was the buzz of the show with a ton of new products, high-profile artists stopping by, and a great location.

TapeLink USB Now Shipping
If you’re like a lot of musicians, you have a bunch of cassette tapes collecting dust in your basement. Maybe you have that recording of the greatest performance your band ever had. Or maybe you have all of your song ideas catalogued for safekeeping. Well how do you listen to them?

NEW MasterControl Video
You’ve probably heard the buzz: the Alesis MasterControl is turning heads throughout the recording world. It combines a versatile software control surface with motorized faders, a 192kHz 24-in/six-out interface, and it even has a talkback mic and speaker switcher. The MasterControl is pre-programmed to work with nearly every audio application you can find.
