Boston, MA (March 24, 2009)--Cakewalk has launched a new line of four cable-based interfaces designed to connect musical instruments and other components to a computer.
The three MIDI interface and one audio interface hardware solutions are USB-bus powered, requiring no AC adaptor and affording users mobility for recording on the go.
"We're very excited to be able to introduce these powerful and easy-to-use, consumer-focused hardware products," said Greg Hendershott, Cakewalk's founder and CEO. "These new products will complement our well-established software product line and help us provide musicians and music lovers alike the tools they need throughout the entire process, from creation to recording to publishing."
The UM-1G, UM-2G and UM-3G MIDI interfaces are designed to connect MIDI devices with a computer through a USB connection. Each MIDI interface is a cable-style interface that is Mac- and PC-compatible.
The UA-1G is a compact one stereo In/one stereo Out USB audio interface that offers sound via multiple connection options. Highlights include 24-bit/96-kHz audio quality and low-latency ASIO 2.0 performance (PC). UA-1G is also WDM- (Windows Vista, Windows XP) and Core Audio- (Mac OS X) compatible.
Cakewalk will ship the UM-1G and UM-2G to retailers in the U.S. this month. The UM-3G USB MIDI interface and the UA-1G USB audio interface will begin shipping in April.
