Musikmesse Frankfurt : Alesis Releases The world’s only handheld stereo USB microphone
Field recording, interviews, and other on-the-go recording applications have always been tricky. You had to deal with preamps, microphones, interfaces, and all the cable hassles. The new AM3 stereo microphone captures CD-quality stereo audio and outputs it as digital signal on a single USB cable. How easy is that?
The world’s only handheld stereo USB microphone. The AM3 is a stereo digital microphone for directly recording stereo audio into your computer. You can place the dual-capsule condenser mic into nearly any environment and capture true stereo sound.
EASY COMPUTER INTERFACE
The AM3 makes computer connection simple, requiring nothing more than a standard USB port on your Mac or PC. Because it has a stereo, analog-to-digital conversion system built inside its housing, there's no need for a preamplifier. And because the AM3 has a mini-USB jack output, there's no need for complicated interface boxes or timecode alignment between the two sides. One cable is all you need for this digital solution.
QUALITY AUDIO CAPTURE
The AM3 features a dual-capsule condenser microphone design that enables you to record detailed stereo audio. Wide, 30 – 20,000 Hz frequecy response rivals that of microphones costing tens of times more money! And its studio-ready analog-to-digital conversion creates 16-bit, 44.1 or 48kHz signal. The mic's body even has a gain control for adjusting the input trim with no computer control required.
COMPLETE THE PACKAGE
The AM3 comes with a free Alesis podcast-hosting subscription enabling you to share your recordings with the world. The AM3 also comes with a carry case, mic clip, and cable.
