Edirol's new UA-1X (SRP: $95) is a compact USB audio interface that replaces the UA-1A. It offers RCA audio input and output, as well as a combination port that offers both headphone out with volume control and S/PDIF optical output.

The UA-1X includes signal indicators to show when audio signals are present, and functions using the standard USB Audio driver included with the user's operating system (PC or Mac). The UA-1X offers audio recording capability up to 16-bit/48kHz quality.

Other new products from Edirol include the UA-3FX, which offers onboard DSP effects, up to 24-bit/48kHz audio quality, support for both ASIO2.0/WDM and OS standard drivers, and low-latency, direct-monitoring support. The UA-3FX includes RCA and S/PDIF connections, one guitar input and a microphone input. The device is USB bus-powered and comes with a SRP of $215. In the MIDI department, the company's new UM-1X and UM-1SX devices replace its UM-1E and UM-1S with the addition of MIDI signal indicators and a Selection switch to allow the user to choose between the Edirol Advanced driver and the OS standard MIDI driver. The UM-1X offers a complete cable solution from the USB port of the computer to the MIDI device. The UM-1SX offers a MIDI input and a MIDI output port to allow the user to connect his or her own MIDI cable of any length. Suggested retail prices: UM-1X, $50; UM-1SX, $45.
