- Hosa Technology has debuted the new TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface.
- Designed to provide easy, direct access to software-based audio applications, the TRACKLINK is a 10-foot, XLR3F to USB Type A interface cable that enables one to make a single point-to-point connection between the microphone (XLR output) and a USB port on a personal computer. Fully functional with both condenser and dynamic microphones, the TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface makes it easier than ever to record speech, vocals, sound effects, and more with today’s most popular software.
As a plug and play device, the TRACKLINK requires no drivers when used with one’s favorite application. The TRACKLINK is compatible with most Windows® and Apple Macintosh audio software, including Cakewalk’s SONAR LE (for Windows PCs) and GarageBand™ on Macintosh computers. For those interested in podcasting who may not necessarily be musicians, the TRACKLINK is an exceptional tool as it simplifies the process of getting audio into the computer. The TRACKLINK even provides visual confirmation of a secure connection and recording status via its onboard indicator lights.
The new Hosa TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface incorporates switchable 48 V phantom power for condenser microphones and adjustable gain for dynamic microphones. With its 16-bit/48 kHz sampling rate, this easy-to-use interface delivers CD Audio sound quality. It’s the perfect solution for home studio users looking for a convenient means of connecting a microphone to their computer.
System requirements for using the Hosa TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface are minimal. The TRACKLINK runs with most Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) or similar audio recording software on Windows PCs with Windows 98 SE, 2000, Me, XP, Vista (32-bit systems), or Windows 7. Macintosh computers must run OSX V10.3.9 or later. The TRACKLINK is a USB 2.0 device.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology’s Director of Sales and Marketing, commented on the new TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface. “The new TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface completes our TRACKLINK USB line,” states Pusey, “which also includes our USQ-110 Guitar to USB Interface and the USM-422 MIDI to USB Interface. With so much focus on software-based audio applications, this new interface enable musicians to use a notebook computer and record whenever and wherever the creative moment strikes. If a mic pre or signal processor is used, the XLR connector simply plugs into the end of the signal chain. The on-board analog-to-digital converter will faithfully reproduce the sound in CD-quality. Our TRACKLINK is an easy-to-use, Plug and Play solution that makes recording more spontaneous than ever.”
The new TRACKLINK Microphone to USB Interface carries an MSRP of $69.95. The TRACKLINK Instrument to USB Interface is available now.
