Buena Park, CA â€“ October 2008â€¦ Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, announces the new TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface. Designed to provide easy, direct access to software-based recording applications, the TRACKLINK is a 10-foot quarter-inch TS (tip-sleeve) to USB Type A interface cable that, for example, enables an electric guitarist to make a single point-to-point connection between the guitarâ€™s standard quarter-inch output and a USB receptacle on a personal computer.
As a Plug and Play device, no drivers are required when using the TRACKLINK with oneâ€™s favorite application. The TRACKLINK is compatible with most audio software, including Cakewalkâ€™s SONAR LE (for WindowsÂ® PCs) and GarageBandâ„¢ on Apple Macintosh computers. The TRACKLINK even provides visual confirmation of a secure connection and recording status via its onboard indicator light.
Ideal for use with guitars, basses, and keyboards, the new TRACKLINK can be used with any electronic musical instrument that uses a mono phone output. For guitarists using pedal effects and other outboard processors, the TRACKLINK is the ideal tool for incorporating custom effects settings into oneâ€™s recordings. By simply plugging the instrument end of the TRACKLINK into the last effect in the signal chain and the TRACKLINKâ€™s USB connector into the computer, the TRACKLINKâ€™s on-board analog-to-digital converter will faithfully reproduce oneâ€™s sound in CD-qualityâ€”direct to the software application of oneâ€™s choosing.
System requirements for using the TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface are minimal. The TRACKLINK runs on Windows PCs with Windows 98 SE, 2000, Me, XP, or Vista (32-bit systems). Macintosh computers must run OSX V10.3.9 or later. The TRACKLINK is a USB 2.0 device.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technologyâ€™s National Marketing Manager, commented on the new TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface. â€œTodayâ€™s software-based recording applications enable musicians to use a notebook computer and record whenever and wherever the creative moment strikes. Our new TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface makes this process easier than ever. No more difficult to transport than a standard instrument cable, the TRACKLINK is an easy-to-use, Plug and Play solution that makes recording more spontaneous than ever. No electronic musician should be without one.â€?
The new TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface carries an MSRP of $41.25. The TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface is available now.
