      LightSnake

      Easily and inexpensively connect your instrument directly to your computer.

      This LightSnake 1/4" to USB instrument cable is basically a "sound card on a cable" that lets you record audio from your guitar or other instrument directly onto your computer. The LightSnake offers true plug-n-play operation: simply connect the 1/4" mono plug of the 10 ft LightSnake cable to your instrument and then connect the USB end to one of your computer's USB ports. No additional drivers are needed for Win 98 SE/Win ME/Win 2000/Win XP/Win Vista, or Mac OS9/OS X.

      An embedded 16-bit analog-to-digital converter with audio signal boost ensures extremely low audio loss and a 48kHz sampling rate provides you with high audio quality while recording. The HSDL (Host Side Data Loss) Noise Reduction function prevents any unwanted noise when converting the audio signal to digital format and saving to your computer. SoundTech's patented "Live when Lit" cable ends glow when connected properly and flash when sound is being transmitted.

      The 10' LightSnake includes a DVD with 30-day trial 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 can use GarageBand or any other Mac-compatible recording software.

      First don't be discouraged by some of the negative comments here. People need to learn how to set up their hardware. I've been using the Lightsnake for several months now and I am completely satisfied with this purchase. I use it with Sonar, Cubase, Guitar Tracks pro, Amplitube, Revalver, Guitar Rig 3 ect. ect. It is far quieter than my on board sound card, and is far more convenient. Get ASIO4ALL and set it up right. You wont be sorry!

      I'm an amateur musician with the most basic of recording setups and i still found myself frustrated with this cord. It is easy to set up with a Macbook Pro and GarageBand and gets you instant plug-and-play capability. There is, however a constant background white noise. When recording with an acoustic electric, it's mostly manageable with proper EQ, but it becomes cripplingly noticeable when trying to record an electric track with any amount of distortion. Some of that may be attributed to hot EMG pickups, but there is still a lot of background static. After an extended period of playing, the sound will start to delay to the point where there will be a large, noticeable gap between the input and the output, which can really mess with your timing. This problem is largely fixed by just unplugging and then re-inserting the cord, but that's still a bit aggravating.

      If the cable is working properly, the cable is great! However, the cable only works half the time.

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      The device does not work with a great many Macs, despite claims to the contrary. The manufacturer support is poor and the distributor forum posts copy/paste from the alleged manual. The web is full of user complaints about the cable not being seen by OS X, Windows and Linux. None of the posted questions have been resolved.Run, do not walk, away from this junk

      Not worth the Hassle

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      I bought this to use with Garage Band on my Mac, I had alot of problems, the signal started to fade out after several minutes of use, after restarting the snake again things would return to normal then static would slowly start creeping into the sound of the guitar, it's cheap, it worked for about a week, I guess I got my money out of it, thanks china for a great product!!!! Im gonna spend a little more next time and buy something of quality, that has good reviews overall

      Vista or Linux can't find it?

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      It's a nice Idea but it's not ready for the real world yet.. No Driver support. Windows can't find it and Linux can't find it. I am still waiting for the support Email they said their going to send. It just sits in stand by mode, Spend a few more $$ and get something that works.

      Metallica quality with guitar rig 4

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      This cord is better than every other cord out there. It is EXTREMELY CLEAR. And I get tones like Sad But True - Metallica or acoustic sounds like Fade To Black - Metallica with guitar rig 4. I can say I cant fully get the sound I want with it but it is defiantly stage quality

      pretty nifty device

      By Matt Coggins

      from Millington, MI

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      One thing that surprised me was that it plugs right into the guitar, and you dont need to run it through your amp or anything so that's really nice. then I recorded a couple of riffs, and we really impressed with the clarity of the sound. the only downside is the lack of distortion, and my guitar doesn't sound that great when its naked.HOWEVER I would highly recommend this for someone recording with a acoustic-electric, because you'll get a clean and a bright sound. I do believe it is a bit pricey.

      Great Product for a Great Price

      By JonnyHawes

      from Bluefield, WV

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      I use this on my Macbook Pro to connect my Guitars/Basses GarageBand and Logic Pro. Have never had any troubles with it at all. I looked around and other USB interfaces to your computer will cost you quite a bit more. This is an excellent product. The only thin I do not care much for is the green LED lights that are on the entire time you are using it. I found them to be annoying after a while. Other than that, not a single complaint.

      Great Product. Must read the instructions

      By Rob-TC_Hh

      from Milwaukee, WI

      Comments about LightSnake Guitar/Keyboard USB 10ft Cable:

      This is a great product. My XP installed in with no problem. You MUST read the instructions though. Don't just assume it's going to work right away. I made that mistake at first then I realized I had to follow the manual to get it to work properly. The Glowing lights are really cool. You can see you music being played from the data transfer. Also, USE the spitter. It cancels the lantency. Plug the USB port into your computer then plug the splitter into your amp. That's the best combination. Best $40 I ever spent!!
