This LightSnake cable is a 1/4" to USB cable which is ideal
for guitars or other musical instruments. The LightSnake
instrument cable is basically a â€œsound card on a cable" and
with this cable you can record audio directly onto your computer.
Connect the 1/4" mono plug of the LightSnake cable
to your instrument and then connect the USB end to one of
your computers USB ports.
This is a true USB plug-n-play connection. No additional
drivers are needed for the following operating systems â€“
Win 98 SE / Win ME / Win 2000 /Win XP and Mac OS9 / OS
X. An ASIO driver is forthcoming for recording software that
implements this technology.
An embedded 16 Bit Analog to Digital Converter with audio
signal boost ensures extremely low audio loss and 48 KHz
Sampling Rate provides you with high audio quality while
recording. The HSDL Noise Reduction function prevents any
unwanted noise when converting the audio signal to digital
format and saving to your computer.
The SoundTech LightSnake line was born out of the desire
to create a simple solution to provide the ability to enjoy
digital recording to everyone. An intelligent instrument- to-PC
cable with embedded analog to digital converter and signal
booster was created.
The LightSnake USBâ€™s unique design enables anyone to
plug their guitar, bass, keyboard or other electronic instrument
directly into a PC eliminating the hassle, clutter and
learning curve associated with high-quality digital recording.
This was accomplished by virtually placing a sound
card onto the cable.
The LightSnake features SoundTechâ€™s patented â€œLive when Lit"
technology cable ends that glow when connected properly and
flash indicating when sound is being transmitted. The simplicity of
these cables and their price point make the digital recording arena
accessible to every one.
The cables are packaged with a DVD that contains 30 day trail
versions of all of Sony Media Software titles, including Sound-
Forge, Acid, Vegas , etc. This addition makes the cable a complete
solution right out of the box. Mac users are not left out as
GarageBand recording software is on every new Macintosh sold.
