WNAMM09: Compact Portable Audio Interface

ESI has announces shipping of their UGM96, a brand new portable guitar and microphone USB audio interface. They tell us that the new extremely compact UGM96 is the smallest interface with this feature set on the market. Here's what ESI have to say in their press release...
UGM96 allows the connection of up to two guitars (via the Hi-Z instrument inputs) or alternatively one guitar and one microphone simultaneously to a PC or Mac via its front panel. The backside offers two stereo outputs for monitoring, i.e. with headphones. The interface comes bundled with Cubase LE 4, the professional multichannel audio sequencing software from Steinberg and the Studio Devil Virtual Guitar Amp plugin for realtime guitar amplifier simulation from Gallo Engineering. The combination of both eliminates the need for cabinets, special microphones, and expensive amps for getting professional guitar tone and allows musicians to directly start laying down their own tracks. All this makes UGM96 the perfect companion for guitar recording applications on the road or studio environments.
"It was a challenge to add this number of features into such a small unit but we are really happy that we managed it without compromising the quality." says Claus Riethmüller, Managing Director of ESI Audiotechnik GmbH.
Pricing and Availability:
UGM96 is available in North America beginning January 2009. The expected street price is $99 USD. More information:
