Product Description

Presenting the new MasterLink ML-9600 two-track hard disc recorder - literally, the state-of-the-art in do-it-yourself mixing and mastering systems.

Only MasterLink lets you capture your mixes in stunning 24-bit, 96kHZ; edit your recording and apply finishing tools - such as high-resolution parametric EQ Compression, limiting and normalizing - all in the same system and then burn the finished recording in either industry-standard Redbook, or new high resolution CD24, fast becoming the new standard for archiving and transferring high-res. audio files to the mastering room.

But don't take our word for it. Visit your local Alesis dealer today and learn why top pros like George Massenburg, Roger Nichols, Elliot Scheiner, Al Schmitt, and Greg Ladanyi have traded in their DAT's for Masterlink. Or better yet, just get off your musically inclined little butt and buy one!

After all, it's only your career we're talking about here.
