Alesis Premiers AM3 – Stereo USB Microphone
Alesis has premiered the AM3 stereo USB microphone. The AM3 is a stereo condenser microphone that enables users to record stereo audio directly onto their computers – an economical solution for portable stereo recording, musicians, journalists and other audio enthusiasts.
The AM3 features a dual-capsule condenser microphone design that enables users to record detailed stereo audio with a claimed 30 – 20,000 Hz frequency response. Its analog-to-digital conversion creates a stereo signal at 16-bit, 44.1 or 48kHz resolution and sample rate. The body of the AM3 features a gain control for adjusting the input trim with no computer control required.
The AM3 comes with a free Alesis podcast-hosting subscription, enabling users to share their recordings with the world. The AM3 also comes with a carry case, mic clip and cable.
The Alesis AM3 will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers in April 2009. No official pricing has been announced. More information on the Alesis AM3.
