Gibson’s new Memory Cable
How many great riffs, chord progressions and solos do you lose a week? It’s not a problem if you’re constantly recording, but for me, that means breaking out the microphones, firing up Garageband and…actually that’s it. But that process can still be a royal pain. The folks at Gibson feel they’ve come up with a new solution—Memory Cable.
Memory Cable has a built-in digital recorder, designed by Tascam. It records up to 13 hours of audio onto an included 4GB Micro SD card. The audio is uncompressed, CD-quality—44.1 kHz/16 bit fidelity. Files are saved in WAV format, compatible with Mac/Windows/iOS, and Android.
You can set Memory Cable to record continuously, or only when you are playing. If you play something you like, you can tag it afterwards to put it into a separate file.
The 16 foot cable also works with bass, drum machines, syths, etc., and line-level signals. Plug it in to a PA mixer output to record rehearsals. You can also use it for “re-amping.”
It’s powered by one AA battery, good for approximately 8 hours of recording. Fortunately, the cable will still work if the battery is dead.
