PRESS RELEASE: Alesis announces the USB-MIDI Cable a cable that links MIDI instruments with computers via USB. The USB-MIDI Cable will make its debut at Alesis' booth, number 400, at the Summer NAMM Show held at the Nashville Convention Center, July 17 - 19.

The USB-MIDI Cable is the latest addition to Alesis' AudioLink Series of problem-solving cables for musicians. The MIDI-to-USB cable has traditional male and female MIDI (DIN) connectors on one end and a USB connector on the other. Musicians can use the USB-MIDI Cable to control virtually any MIDI-compliant software using any hardware device with a MIDI output jack, such as a keyboard, drum pad or MPC.

The USB-MIDI Cable is class compliant for plug-and-play USB connectivity on Mac and PC, requiring no software-driver installation or external powering. Musicians can use the USB-MIDI Cable with virtually all music production, sequencing and recording software.

"This new cable is perfect for bringing older MIDI controllers into today's computer-music age," said Jim Norman, Product Manager, Alesis. "The USB-MIDI Cable is one of those problem solvers that should be in every studio as an insurance policy, if nothing else."

The USB-MIDI Cable will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers Q3 2009.
