Gibson Memory Cable shoves a digital recorder in to your guitar lead
When noodling around on your guitar I am pretty sure you’ve probably come up with a great progression or harmony line and thought to yourself “I’m digging that, I’ll remember that for sure” only to not play it again, turn up to rehearsal and go blank. Gibson’s Memory Cable wants to help you out.
Gibson Brands has launched a first-of-its-kind in its Memory Cable.
This lead has a built-in, super-compact recorder (designed by TASCAM) and will remember everything you play.
Gibson says that, boasting uncompressed CD-quality 44.1kHz/16-bit resolution and recording for up to 10 hours with the included 4GB Micro SD card (expandable for more time), the high-quality audio is ideal for transferring to computer-based multi-track recording programs.
I for one sometimes can’t be bothered to switch on the computer to record my ideas when jamming to tracks on my phone through my RH450 with headphones on and I can’t always have my amp through my cab when my ideas land at night.
I may, however, be more inclined to record things if the recording device is already in my lead and the Memory Cable doesn’t even need to be plugged it to an amp – it can simply plug in to a guitar, bass, or keyboard for instant recording should inspiration come to you in the back of the van.
Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and CEO of Gibson Brands said, “We are delighted to launch our new Gibson Brands memory cable in partnership with TASCAM. Gibson is always striving to create a better experience for our customers, so I am personally very excited about the Memory Cable’s ability to help musicians capture their brilliant creative moments–and never lose a great musical idea again.”
The ultra-simple user interface doesn’t interfere with the creative flow, and the WAV file format is compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android.
