Alesis unveils Core Series 24-bit USB Audio Interfaces

Alesis has announced the new CORE Series of 24-bit USB Audio Interfaces.

CORE Series interfaces offer a full range of recording solutions including XLR+1/4" combo inputs, Mic/Line or Guitar level switching, headphone outputs with level controls for efficient monitoring, and each model ships with a Cubase 7 LE.

CORE 1, a single input/dual output inline interface, is ideal for on-the-go recording or the budget-conscious producer. CORE 2 offers both audio and MIDI connections for full studio integration. Topping out the series is the CORE 8, an eight-channel rack mount interface suited for live or studio applications.

Alesis CORE Highlights

1-Channel In-Line USB Audio Interface

  • 2-channel mini USB, 24-bit/48 kHz output.
  • 1 XLR+1/4" TRS combo input with gain knob.

  • 2 Powered USB hub ports; MIDI In and MIDI out.

Alesis Product Manager Nate Lane explains, "Each recording interface in the CORE family was purpose-built for different customers with different primary applications. CORE 1 has a micro-sized aluminum housing that not only makes it portable, but ready to take a beating. CORE 2 shares the same aluminum housing material and takes a step up with high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz recording quality and two built-in USB-powered hubs for additional gear. CORE 8 addresses a different need with a utilitarian 2U rack-mounted interface for the budget-conscious home recordist looking to record drum kits or multiple instruments or vocals at the same time — all without sacrificing mic preamp or recording quality."

The CORE Series will have the following respective street prices, CORE 1 ($49.99 USD), CORE 2 ($149.99 USD), CORE 8 ($299.99 USD).

Alesis will present the CORE interface lineup at the 2014 NAMM Show in Hall A, Booth 6700, January 23-26 in Anaheim, California.
