August 25, 2008 by Mobile Beat

LOS ANGELES — Turning analog signals into digital files that can be edited, mixed and stored has never been easier or more affordable, thanks to the new Audio Genie Pro from American Audio. Working with a variety of software programs, this nifty little product (it weighs a mere half pound) connects directly to a PC’s USB connection to turn analog signals into digital files without using a sound card or driver.

Great for home and portable recording studios, the Audio Genie Pro allows mobile entertainers to record music with their computer’s built-in audio recorder or favorite production software, including Windows MME, Audition, MacIntosh Garage Band, IMovie, Audio Hijack Pro, Sound Studio and Sound Manager. The Genie Pro supports a 48/44.1 khz sampling rate for both playback and record.

“The Audio Genie provides DJs and other mobile entertainers with a user-friendly cost effective way to take their analog music and convert it into digital files that can be used in their productions,” said Tom Freret, national sales manager of American Audio. “The Genie Pro has built-in features, such as a low noise phono preamp circuit and signal/peak LED indicators, that help ensure the sound quality of the digital files that are converted from audio.”

Other performance features of the Genie Pro include a frequency response ranging from 10Hz-20Khz, +/- .5 dB, as well as:
· THD – 0.01% typical a 1 khz
· Hum and Noise less than 89dB below clipping
· Maximum Input Level – 40m Vrms at 1 Khz (phono) plus 19dBu line

Microsoft Vista Premium compliant, the Audio Genie Pro works with a RCA preamp line output connection and a 1/8 inch mini-jack USB monitor/headphone output to receive analog input. The unit has a 9 volt AC/DC at 150 mA power requirement, or it can be USB bus powered.

The Audio Genie Pro has suggested retail price of $99.95 (the unit does not include RCA cables), so it’s priced to fit any budget. For more information, contact American Audio at 800-322-6337 or visit
