M1Active 520 USB monitors
Alesis has debuted its M1Active 520 USB Studio monitors at the NAMM show in Anaheim. Designed for professional studio use with an internal digital-audio interface, the M1Active 520 USB are a pair of active, bi-amplified, two-way reference speakers that provide an audio range from 20kHz down to 56Hz. In addition to the USB playback ability, the speakers come with a pair of TRS-balanced 1/4-inch inputs that converts them into a computer audio interface.
Alesis has announced first shipments of its MasterControl audio interface and control surface. Designed as a professional audio interface and recording control tool, the device provides 44.1kHz to 192kHz recording capabilities. The input section consists of two XLR inputs with phantom power and channel inserts, six TRS line inputs, and expansion capabilities. Master Control also comes complete with a talkback microphone, a full MIDI interface, and the ability to review knob, button, and fader settings before sending them to the DAW software.
USB Recording Kit
Alesis has announced its USB Recording Kit, a complete computer-recording system on display at the NAMM show. The bundles allows recording higher quality audio by combining AM2 condenser microphones and two-way active studio monitors with a digital audio recording interface. Recording music involves only hooking the equipment up through any computer using two USB ports and a pair or microphone cables.
