Check Out the New Gibson Memory Cable
Ever come up with an awesome riff, only to realize you had no way to record it, and by the time you finally got hold of a recording device the notes where already gone from memory? Truth is, it's probably happened to all of us. Luckily, Gibson has a solution for those of us with musical amnesia: The Gibson Memory Cable™! Simply put, this is a high quality guitar cable that has a built in recording feature.
The microSD card can record up to 13 hours of uninterrupted playing in 44.1kHz/16-bit resolution, and the best part is that you don't even have to be plugged in to your amp for the Memory Cable™ to work! The applications for the device are basically endless. Aside from using it to record song ideas, you could keep it running during practice sessions for later analysis, and it can even be plugged in to a PA if you want to record your band's rehearsal. Aside from being a convenient tool for on-the-go recording, it is also a great quality cable, and since you always need a cable to plug in to your amp, you'll most likely have it around at all times.
If you come up with a particularly good riff or song idea, you can even import the music to your favorite recording program and use it as the base for creating a new song. The Memory Cable™ can easily be set to only record when you're actually playing something, which saves memory by not recording silence. You also have the option to close the existing file and start a new recording with the push of a button. That way if you record a particularly good riff, you'll always know to look at the end of your files.
So go check out The Memory Cable, and start recording some killer riffs before you forget them!
