This package comes with two essentials for your recording equipment rig: the easy-to-use Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 USB Audio Interface with the Cubase 5 Essential software. Combined you have all the tools you need for audio composition, recording, editing, and mixing.
Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 Computer Recording System
The Yamaha AUDIOGRAM Series has been carefully designed to make setting up your computer-based recording studio an absolute breeze. Coming as a complete kit, the AUDIOGRAM3 USB Audio Interface bundles together a hardware interface that adds audio inputs and outputs to your computer, software for recording and producing music, and a USB cable for connecting the audio interface.
The recording equipment will instantly turn your computer into a powerful yet intuitive tool for recording and editing audio from virtually any microphone or audio input device. What's more, setup is as easy as installing the bundled music-production application, Cubase AI, on your computer and connecting the audio interface using the USB cable provided. You're then ready to connect instruments, microphones, CD players, MP3 players, and even old record or tape players for recording straight into Cubase AI.
Streamlined audio interface
With a focus on simplicity and ease-of-use, the Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 delivers a compact audio interface complete with both a mono and stereo input channel. Providing maximum flexibility for recording from almost any audio source, the mono input channel features a combo-type connector that can be set for microphone or line level input, while the stereo channel has both phone and RCA connectors. Of course, as this interface is USB bus-powered, it needs no external power supply and is an ideal solution for mobile applications.
High-quality microphone preamp
Also supporting microphone-level input, the AUDIOGRAM3 mono channel features a microphone preamp offering excellent audio quality. And should you want to connect a condenser microphone for higher-quality recordings, this channel can even be phantom powered. Regardless of what type of microphone you choose, however, the professional mixer technologies integrated into this preamp will deliver perfect recordings every time.
Direct connection of electric guitars and basses
With one touch of the MIC/INST select button, you can set the sensitivity of the Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 mono channel for direct connection of either microphones or instruments. When set to instrument-level sensitivity, for example, you can directly record electric guitars, basses, and many other input devices. And all audio recorded using either of the MIC/INST settings can then be processed to give professional-sounding results using CUBASE AI's built-in effects.
Stereo channel for practically all sound input devices
With the Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 USB Audio Interface, you also get a stereo input channel with both phone and RCA pin connectors that can be used to conveniently connect not only synthesizers, portable keyboards, and electronic pianos, but also a diversity of other sound sources such as CD players, MD players, portable audio players, and even old record and tape players. Providing maximum flexibility for many different recording situations, the AUDIOGRAM3 even supports simultaneous recording of the instrument or vocal on the mono channel with the audio being input via the stereo channel. For example, you could easily use this feature to record yourself playing along to a CD or MD backing track or singing to a karaoke track created on a portable keyboard.
