ALESIS SHIPS GuitarLink Plus

Single Cable Connects a Guitar To a Computer Creating Instant FX Rack Using the Included Guitar Rig LE from Native Instruments

Cumberland, R.I. (Feb. 22, 2011) – Alesis, a leading manufacturer of professional audio equipment and studio electronics, announces the immediate availability of GuitarLink Plus, which connects guitars to computers with a single USB cable, and includes software that simulates a studio full of effects gear.

GuitarLink Plus easily connects guitars and other line-level audio sources directly into a computer. GuitarLink Plus’ internal, analog-to-digital conversion brings studio-quality, 16-bit, 44.1 kHz digital-audio straight to a computer from 1/4" to USB. No need to install drivers, GuitarLink Plus connects plug-and-play to Mac or PC for a simple, streamlined studio solution. Once the guitar and computer are hooked up, Native Instruments Guitar Rig LE® software is included to begin processing the signal with effects including distortion, reverb and more. 



Guitar Rig LE® shapes a guitar sound with many emulations of classic amplifiers and effects pedals. Guitar performances can even be recorded within the software. GuitarLink Plus is the no-hassle way of running a guitar through a computer and making it sound better than ever.

“Getting your guitar recorded into your computer has always required a fair amount of time and patience,” said Dan Radin, Product Manager, Alesis. “GuitarLink Plus not only makes recording to a computer drop-dead simple, it includes everything a guitar player needs to jam with different effects thanks to the included Guitar Rig LE software.”
