TapeLink USB

Alesis has released the TapeLink USB, a dual-cassette deck designed to digitally archive audio. The device allows users to transfer cassette recordings onto a hard disk, flash memory, CD or iPod. Connection to a computer is provided via USB, with support for 16-bit, 44.1 kHz CD-quality recordings. Two different dubbing modes are available for either normal or high-speed dubbing. To protect tapes from damage, the deck also features full auto-stop capability. Users can extract audio from either metal or CrO2 tapes, while LEDs offer a visual reference to the sound levels.

The device comes bundled with three different applications; SoundSoap Standalone Edition (SE) for reduction of background noises such as room noise and electrical hum, Audacity audio-editing software, and EZ Tape Converter to assist with transfers. TapeLink USB is compatible with Mac OS X and carries an estimated street price of $200.
