The LightSnake from SoundTech allows any musician to hook their amplified instruments – guitar, bass, keyboard – directly into any USB based Apple computer running OS 9 or X. The cord features a built-in analog to digital converter, a signal booster, and glows green when in use. In the past, a sound card with the appropriate input was required for such a connection, but for a mere $70 any musician can record digitally. Included is a quarter-inch mini-adapter, and quarter-inch male to dual quarter-inch female splitter.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
