Easily and inexpensively connect your instrument directly to your computer.

This LightSnake 1/4" to USB instrument cable is basically a "sound card on a cable" that lets you record audio from your guitar or other instrument directly onto your computer. The LightSnake offers true plug-n-play operation: simply connect the 1/4" mono plug of the 10 ft LightSnake cable to your instrument and then connect the USB end to one of your computer's USB ports. No additional drivers are needed for Win 98 SE/Win ME/Win 2000/Win XP/Win Vista, or Mac OS9/OS X.

An embedded 16-bit analog-to-digital converter with audio signal boost ensures extremely low audio loss and a 48kHz sampling rate provides you with high audio quality while recording. The HSDL (Host Side Data Loss) Noise Reduction function prevents any unwanted noise when converting the audio signal to digital format and saving to your computer. SoundTech's patented "Live when Lit" cable ends glow when connected properly and flash when sound is being transmitted.

The 10' LightSnake includes a DVD with 30-day trial versions of all of Sony Media Software titles, including Sound Forge, Acid, Vegas, etc. This addition makes the cable a complete solution right out of the box. Mac users can use GarageBand or any other Mac-compatible recording software.

  • Works well if you're not jumpy

    As reviewed by Jamie Tahirkheli on 1/12/2009

    It works just how it should for my MacBook on garageband, just make sure you plug it in before starting garage band, but if you plug it in after you start garageband, just switch to a different track and it will start to work.

  • Good Buy

    As reviewed by Carbenson on 10/12/2009

    Hey , it does what it says. It works great I've had it for 6 months with no trouble. No , its not good enuf sound quality to make a professional recording, but I don't think anyone with realistic expectations should be looking for that. I'm using mine with a Keyboard, that has a great deal of spectral variations, and it does well with that. If you need a studio, then lookelsewhere, If you want to pipe your chops into a computer, this will do it great!

  • Great Product

    As reviewed by Senor Chef on 7/2/2007

    I just bought this for use with garageband and am quite happy with it. The previous review complains about unwanted distortion but the signal from my bass to my macbook is very clear with no unwanted noise. Its cheaper then those big boxes and is much more portable. Also, the green led's look pretty cool. Great product if you want record from your instrument to computer and the mic isnt cuttin it for you this is a great choice.
