Now Shipping: Aardvark USB3!(July 25, 2001)
The USB3 ($299 US List) is a professional USB audio interface that comes with everything needed to record, playback and monitor professional quality audio from any Mac, PC or Laptop. The clever mixing interface, professional 24 Bit A/D converters and versatile portability make the USB3 the new standard for home recording.
The USB3 enables recording from any analog source directly to the computer without the need of an outboard mixer or preamp. It features a high quality ¼" mic preamp which doubles as a Hi-Z guitar input. The Hi-Z input's Enhanced Frequency Response (EFRTM) circuitry is specifically tailored to add maximum clarity and "punch" to direct recording of high-impedance instruments such as electric guitar and bass.
The USB3's front panel features a convenient ¼" headphone jack with slider level control, making real-time monitoring refreshingly easy. A clever mixing control surface allows for precise adjustments of all input and output audio levels. The input clip LEDs and output metering provide an additional source of accuracy in addition to giving the USB3 an eye-catching presence.
Along with the self-powered USB connection to the computer, the back panel has professional ¼" stereo line inputs and outputs that work simultaneously with the mic & guitar input. The Record Select switch allows separate monitoring and recording busses similar to working with an outboard mixer and sound card. This allows for up to 5 channels of low-latency monitoring for recording, mixing and playback.
The 24 bit A/D converters in the USB3 are completely shielded to capture professional, studio quality audio. As a self-powered, professional audio mixer and interface, the portable USB3 can make professional recordings on laptops, PCs and Macs anywhere in the world.
The USB3 is $299 US LIST and ships with Cakewalk Metro SE for Mac and Cakewalk Guitar Tracks 2 for PC.
