WNAMM10: Easy Archiving With The Alesis Phonolink Interface


Alesis have announced the PhonoLink, a stereo, analog-to-digital USB interface.
Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Alesis, told us, "Many musicians have old collections of tapes and records in their basements. The PhonoLink is an easy, all-in-one way to convert it for use on today's digital playback systems."
Here's the details directly from Alesis...
The PhonoLink is Alesis' latest addition to the AudioLink series of USB audio interfaces that enable musicians to connect analog audio sources directly to their computer and record them via a standard USB jack. The PhonoLink has stereo RCA inputs, which users can switch from line to phono level. Users can use the PhonoLink for converting music on records, tapes, or virtually any other source into digital audio wav or MP3 files.
The PhonoLink outputs studio quality 16-bit, 44.1 kHz digital audio thanks to its internal analog-to-digital conversion system. For archiving music from records, the PhonoLink features a built-in grounding terminal. For optimizing signal level, it has a convenient level control. The PhonoLink features plug-and-play connection for Mac and PC and is compatible with virtually all Mac and Windows class-compliant drivers and software.
  • Connect turntable, tape deck, mixer, or other stereo, line-level audio source to USB for stereo recording
  • Stereo, 16-bit, 44.1 kHz digital audio output
  • 6.5-foot length (2m)
  • Compatible with most Mac and Windows class-compliant drivers and software
