Alesis say that MultiPort brings an all-new level of iPod recording to the computer desktop by delivering professional-quality recording directly to an iPod, or computer. Synchronization with iTunes ensures that MultiPort is the only iPod dock needed on the desktop.
Alesis Product Manager Jim Norman told us, â€œPeople of all ages and backgrounds own iPods. Until MultiPort, there hasnâ€™t been anything that delivers pro-grade inputs and a USB audio interface in a single, compact desktop design for iPod.â€�
Hereâ€™s the rest of what Alesis have to say in their own wordsâ€¦
â€™Musicians, DJs, houses of worship, and corporations can make quick, easy use of MultiPort's built-in level meters, headphone monitoring and integrated iPod controls. MultiPort makes direct-to-iPod or direct-to-computer recording possible without a tangled mess of wires and confusing software. Simply plug a microphone or musical instrument into MultiPort, then connect MultiPort to a computer with a single USB cable and the rest is easy. Included Cubase LE software handles recording and is perfect for musicians or vocalists to lay down multiple tracks on their computer for mix-down to an iPod. MultiPort also supports Windows UPnP and Apple Core Audio, making it compatible with virtually any audio software available for either platform.
MultiPort also has industrial-grade, balanced inputs, 1/4" stereo outputs, and phantom power for easy use with professional or consumer microphones. All of these features packed into a compact, functional form-factor make MultiPort the perfect iPod companion from the control room to the boardroom.
