Packaged as complete computer music solutions, the AUDIOGRAM Series bundle together a hardware interface with audio inputs and outputs, software for recording and producing music, and a USB cable for connection to a computer. Recording music from instruments, microphones, CD players or MP3 players is as easy as installing the included music-production application, CUBASE AI, on your computer and connecting the audio interface using the USB cable provided.
“The AUDIOGRAM Series has been carefully designed to make everything from set-up to recording as easy as possible,” said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing - Technology Products for Yamaha Corporation of America. “With simple to use USB powered hardware and the included Cubase AI software, computer music production is now accessible to virtually anyone.”
The AUDIOGRAM 6 features 2 XLR combo inputs with preamps and one-knob compression for dialing in the desired sound from microphones and instruments. One of these inputs has switchable phantom power for using high-quality condenser microphones. Two stereo inputs, stereo and headphone outputs, and a USB jack complete the unit’s connections. The AUDIOGRAM 6 includes separate controls for audio inputs and computer playback for complete control while recording.
With a focus on simplicity, the AUDIOGRAM 3 features one phantom powered combo input switchable for microphones or instrument recording, a stereo input, a stereo and headphone output as well as a USB jack for connection to the computer.
