Digitize your cassettes with TapeLink USB. This dual-cassette deck enables your to store your irreplaceable recordings on hard disk, flash, burn them to CD, or take them with you on your iPod. Clean up your old tape recordings of your band's rehearsals and performances and listen in your car.

TapeLink USB is a dubbing and playback deck with digital-audio output via USB. It contains a plug-and-play USB-audio interface which requires no drivers for use with most computers. Its CD-quality 16-bit, 44.1 kHz audio output accurately captures your tape recordings for secure digital archival.

Normal and high-speed dubbing modes save you time when copying your music, and dynamic noise-reduction circuitry and Alesis' software suite assist you in cleaning up aging tapes. TapeLink USB works with metal and CrO2 tapes, and contains an LED level-meter for visual-level reference. Its full auto-stop features saves your irreplaceable older tapes from breaking.

TapeLink USB comes with a software suite containing three applications. BIAS SoundSoap SE (Standalone Edition) noise-reduction software removes hiss, room noise, rumble, electrical hum, and other background noise. Audacity audio-editing software enables you to make basic modifications, and EZ Tape Converter makes transfer simple and convenient.

With the great Alesis lineage behind it, TapeLink USB joins a prestigious family of audio recording tools including ADAT, SR16, and MasterLink to name just a few. Includes a USB cable, power cable, software CD, and quick start guide.

Tape to Computer

By Greg Elson

from Chandler, AZ

Comments about Alesis TapeLink USB Dual Cassette Digital Archiver:

Although the tape deck itself has some significant motor noise, it's very easy to use & does a very good job of transferring audio tape to computer file via USB. The finished file is then saved to your iTunes. The supplied software runs well & the online instructions for trouble shooting are easy to follow also. Overall, it's doing exactly what I need it to do without any major issues.
