Patent application serial number 628760 is assigned to Alesis, L.p.
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present patent document relates generally to audio mixers and more particularly to an audio mixer and multichannel recorder configured for tablet computers.
"Audio mixers are well known in the art. However these prior art audio mixers have limited capability to interact with modern tablet computers. Accordingly, there is a perceived need in the industry for an audio mixer capable of pro-level audio mixing that has integrated tablet computer connectivity."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "The present invention solves the problems of the prior art by providing an audio mixer that includes integrated tablet computer dock for seamless operation with a tablet computer. The audio mixer, as described herein, includes four or more channels of audio input. The channels are set up as a standard audio mixer. They can be mixed into 1 (mono) or 2 channels and fed to the tablet computer for processing or recording. Additionally, each channel can be independently transmitted to the tablet computer for software applications that allow Multi-channel recording or processing.
"The audio mixer is designed to operate as a standard audio mixer when the tablet computer is removed. That is, the audio mix can be routed direct to the outputs. All settings, filtering and processing internal to the audio mixer are not affected when the tablet computer is not present in the dock.
"One of the inputs may also be used with calibrated microphone. This enables the audio mixer to be used with applications utilizing real time audio analyzers.
