Griffin Announces The New iMic(October 19, 2005)
Griffin Technology Inc., creator of exciting innovations for Mac, PC and iPod, today announces the new iMic USB audio adapter, redesigned for today's hardware.
iMic was the original USB audio adapter that enabled Mac and PC users to add stereo input and output to their USB computers that, otherwise, lacked the necessary hardware support. iMic allows you to connect virtually any microphone or sound input device to your iBook, PowerBook, PowerMac or other Mac or PC systems with a USB port. iMic supports both mic and line level inputs via a selectable switch, as well as a variable level output for connecting speakers or headphones.
iMic's audio is superior to most computers' built-in audio because it uses USB for the audio signal. USB isolates the audio signal from the noisy electronics in your computer, giving you higher quality sound when you record, and higher quality sound output for external speakers. Use it in conjunction with your laptop for noticeably cleaner and louder output.
iMic shines as the essential tool for converting your old LPs and tapes into MP3s and CDs. Griffin's audio recording software Final Vinyl* (provided for free exclusively to iMic owners) makes recording old records and tapes super easy, with several advanced features such as waveform-based cue editing and built-in 10-band EQ. Final Vinyl can also equalize LPs without having to connect a turntable to a pre-amp. Just hook the turntable directly to the iMic (with the included 7" stereo mini jack to RCA adapter cable) and Final Vinyl will record your LPs perfectly.
iMic, now updated for modern hardware, provides the perfect solution for almost any audio need, including:
? Final Cut Pro
iMic requires no software driver installation. Just plug iMic into an available USB port and start recording in your favorite compatible application. It's the simplest solution for the best possible results.
Pricing & Availability
The new Griffin iMic's suggested retail price is $39.99 USD, and is scheduled to begin shipping in mid November. Pre-orders are being accepted at www.griffintechnology.com.
