Gibson's Memory Cable Records Your Playing - First Look

Built-in recorder offers insurance for your inspiration - never lose a new riff   16-Apr-14

Gibson Brands has launched the first-of-its-kind Memory Cable, which ensures musicians and songwriters never miss a brilliant creative moment again. They say that, with its built-in, super-compact recorder (designed by TASCAM), the Memory Cable is a premium-quality instrument cable for guitar, bass, or keyboard that literally remembers everything the musician plays.

Gibson says that, boasting uncompressed CD-quality 44.1kHz/16-bit resolution and recording for up to 10 hours with the included 4GB Micro SD card (expandable for more time), the high-quality audio is ideal for transferring to computer-based multi-track recording programs. Whether for songwriters whose next inspiration might be the next top 10 hit or garage warriors who simply don't want to lose a great riff, the Memory Cable doesn't even need to be plugged it to an amp--it can simply plug in to a guitar, bass, or keyboard for instant recording.

Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and CEO of Gibson Brands said, "We are delighted to launch our new Gibson Brands memory cable in partnership with TASCAM. Gibson is always striving to create a better experience for our customers, so I am personally very excited about the Memory Cable's ability to help musicians capture their brilliant creative moments--and never lose a great musical idea again."

The Memory Cable can even plug into a PA mixer's output to record rehearsals, is the perfect "re-amping" solution, and can record practicing for later analysis. The ultra-simple user interface doesn't interfere with the creative flow, and the WAV file format is compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android.

Pricing and Availability:
Available May 15th in the USA.

If the most important thing about capturing the moment is always having a recorder ready to go I suppose this is a good thing.

It's definitely as simple as you can get.

Wonder wot the price is?

Yup, brilliant idea. My question is though is this one fixed unit or can you swap out the cables on either end of the recorder. Typically the most vulnerable part of a cable over time is its connector jacks so if one of those goesecomes flakey have you just lost your whole recorder device too.

One addition that would make this amazing, if it had a headphone jack and you could disconnect the longer part of the cable and use it as a small preamp (like the VOX amplug) and recorder that would be a game changer
