iBooster Connects Guitars and Mics to Macs

- Press Release

MXL microphones, the professional audio division of Marshall Electronics, proudly introduces the iBooster Signal Compatibility Interface for Apple® personal computers. Designed to raise any low level input signal, such as those characteristic of microphones and electric guitar, to interface with the audio input level of Apple personal computers, this compact, affordable interface is the essential tool for home recording and multimedia enthusiasts. With the MXL iBooster, adding dialog to a presentation, creating one's own podcasts, or recording a musical performance is easier than ever. The new iBooster is the perfect accessory for Apple Garage Band™ and all Macintosh® users.

Because both electric guitar and cardioid condenser microphones (the microphone type used in professional recording environments) output a relatively low level signal, they need to be raised to line operating level to be used effectively with Apple Macintosh computers—both the iMac™ and the larger Power Mac™ tower systems. Prior to the introduction of the iBooster, Mac users needed to purchase an expensive and complicated preamplifier to drive the Mac to the proper operating level. MXL's new iBooster Signal Compatibility Interface resolves this issue—cost effectively and without occupying any appreciable amount of space.

MXL's new iBooster Signal Compatibility Interface is the perfect complement to the company's Desktop Recording Kit (DRK). Designed specifically for the computer enthusiast seeking the highest quality audio for vocal recording, the DRK consists of a professional cardioid condenser microphone, complete with a desktop microphone stand, microphone clip, XLR cable, XLR to Mini-Plug adapter cable, 3.5mm Mini-Plug to ¼ inch adapter, and power source.

With a white color designed to blend aesthetically into the Macintosh computing environment, this diminutive accessory includes a power supply and a guitar adapter cable—everything needed to ensure trouble-free operation. The iBooster also incorporates a power switch and power LED to indicate when the unit is on.

According to Wayne Freeman, MXL's Director of Sales and Marketing, “Macintosh users have been searching for an easy to use, affordable solution for integrating professional quality microphones and electric guitar with their Macs for years. Our new iBooster Signal Compatibility Interface addresses this issue inexpensively, and enables Mac enthusiasts everywhere to integrate microphones and electric guitars into their multimedia/recording activities.”

Slated to ship in September 2005 with a suggested retail price of $29.95, MXL's new iBooster Signal Compatibility Interface is the essential accessory for all Macintosh enthusiasts wanting to use their computer for personal recording. By specifying DRK/Mac, retailers can conveniently order the Desktop Recording Kit and the iBooster together.
