The SoundTech LightSnake line was born out of the desire to create a simple solution to provide the ability to enjoy digital recording to everyone. An intelligent instrument-to-PC cable with embedded analog to digital converter and signal booster was created.
The LightSnake USB's unique design enables anyone to plug their guitar, bass, keyboard or other electronic instrument directly into a PC eliminating the hassle, clutter and learning curve associated with high-quality digital recording. This was accomplished by virtually placing a sound card onto the cable.
The LightSnake features SoundTech's patented "Live when Lit" technology cable ends that glow when connected properly and flash indicating when sound is being transmitted. The simplicity of these cables and their price point make the digital recording arena accessible to every one.
The cables are packaged with a DVD that contains 30 day trail versions of all of Sony Media Software titles, including Sound Forge, Acid, Vegas, etc. This addition makes the cable a complete solution right out of the box. Mac users are not left out as GarageBand recording software is on every new Macintosh sold.
