Yamaha AUDIOGRAM 6 USB audio interface
At last week's Musikmesse/Pro Light+Sound show in Frankfurt, Germany, Yamaha announced its AUDIOGRAM 6 ($199.99) and AUDIOGRAM 3 ($139.99) USB audio interfaces, which are bundled with Steinberg Cubase AI software. A USB cable is included in each package.
The AUDIOGRAM 6 features two XLR combo inputs with built-in preamps and one-knob compression for dialing in the desired sound from microphones and instruments. One input includes switchable phantom power for using high-quality condenser microphones. The unit also has two stereo inputs, stereo and headphone outputs, and a USB jack. The AUDIOGRAM 6 includes separate controls for audio inputs and computer playback for complete control while recording.
The AUDIOGRAM 3 features one phantom-powered combo input switchable for microphones or instrument recording, a stereo input, a stereo and headphone output, and a USB jack.
Yamaha expects the AUDIOGRAM Series to be available in August 2008.
