Product Description

See the Light. Now that you have a "Soundcard in a cable," digital music recording has never been easier. Just plug in your microphone and start recording in CD quality. You can start your own music production straight out of the package - Package includes Sony demo software and cable is Garage Band ready. You no longer need any additional interfaces the SoundTech LightSnake brings new meaning to "plug and play". Great for Pod casting.

Customer Reviews

This is a simply plug and play product and it works like a charm!
Melody Brooke
On an XP w/sp3, the system does not recognize the device and asks for the location of a device driver.
Doctor of Democracy
What's more, the built-in preamp is weak, and the volume is extremely quiet.

The cable is fine and if you have a good dynamic mic then you can get a good sound from it. I use a Mac and you do have to go into sounds under preferences to set the mic up properly. Otherwise, with garageband it all worked fine. My only complaint is that it is not made clear anywhere on the packaging or website that this cable does not provide phantom power. So you can't use it with a condenser mic. I just wish this was made more clear to me before buying.

I'm been trying to create computer files of spoken announcements that will at least rival those picked up by the high-end mics (Shure SM7UB) at the radio station. Like many audiophiles, I assumed it would require a condenser mic for its fabled superior frequency range along with a pre-amp for phantom power and a pop filter to handle the sibilants and explosives. I started with Blue mics, then tried Behringer, Cad, and several others, with mostly disappointing results. Then I realized that the expensive Shure mics at the studio are dynamic, not condenser, mics and that the most popular mic among all musicians is also a Shure dynamic mic--the Shure SM58 (or SM57, for musical instruments).

Initial results with the LightSnake used in tandem with the SM58, a combination allowing me to convert the XLR connector of the SM58 to a USB connector, are encouraging. The volume, as others have pointed out, is a bit soft, but an inexpensive A.R.T. preamp gave me all the gain I could ask for, providing phantom power should I go back to a condenser mic. To my ears the sounds approach the baritone richness of the Shure SM7B, but I won't know for certain until I get the verdict from the station manager (some of my experiments have resulted in hum or noise that wasn't clear on my end but, after sending it to the radio station, proved to be a problem for air-time use).

The cost may seem a bit high for a cable, but not if it can produce the sounds claimed on behalf of all those mics I had to return. Moreover, it's no ordinary cable. As the name implies, this snake lights up (on both ends) when its fangs strike a profitable vein. Also, if you're a PC person, it comes with Sony demo software; if you're a Mac person, it comes with instructions for use with Garage Band.

This product seems to work on some machines but not all. On an XP w/sp3, the system does not recognize the device and asks for the location of a device driver. Of course this is not available and SoundTech Tech claims that they do not know what device driver the cable uses. They also claim that they cannot find out what device driver is needed as they do not manufacture the Lightsnake, and they do not have authority to contact the OEM. After searching the Internet, it appears that I am not alone with this problem, but SoundTech actually told me to call Microsoft to find the device driver. Not much help here as Soundtech cannot tell me what device driver I should be looking for. Maybe the worst tech support I have experienced in my 30+ years in the IT industry!

I have a Nady StarPower 1 dynamic mic and had not been able to use it for Rock Band on my 360; I tried another XLR-to-USB product and it did not work. I suspect the lack of phantom power is what makes this work with both Rock Band and Karaoke Revolution: American Idol Encore (although it doesn't work that well with the latter; I suspect that's by the programmers' design).

The LightSnake works very well: the lights are particularly helpful when I build up a little static and touch the mic. If the lights go out, I unplug it and plug it back in, and we're back in business - you know exactly when it's working and when it's not.

I am using the LightSnake cable with windows vista for voice commands and the clarity and results i have on all recorded sound is impressive. I also intend to start using it for a podcast and expect excellent results. A close friend is using it for podcasting and the quality is awesome.

I was really impressed with this product when I got it. The quality is so much better than I expected. This is not the type of cable that will easily break. It is plug and play for Mac, and has a CD for Windows-based machines.

Unfortunately, when I use it with my Mac, I get some serious buzz in the background - so much so that I stopped recording with it. I am not sure what the problem is, but the buzz is loud enough to be annoying.

Good quality cable if you want to give it a shot. The buzz could be how it talks to my computer and you may not have the same problem. It could also be my mic.

The cable is a very simple interface. I use a Shure SM58 to an iMac with Garage Band and it works perfectly.

The cable does work with an XBox 306s console, and allows you to use an existing XLR mic and appropriately long XLR cable (or wireless mic gear, if you have it, I presume works also).

However, on the 360s there is an issue with the rear USB ports on the console that cause problems.

The 360s has three USB ports on the back side. The top of the 3 is partly obscured by the plastic casing of the 360 console.. so the lightsnake cable could not be plugged in properly. This could be fixed easy enough with a rotary tool if you are ok with taking your xbox appart, but there are 2 other USB ports below it, or a short and thin USB extension cable may solve the problem, so don't worry about it.

The middle and lower USB ports on the backside of the xbox 360 seem highly sensitive to the position of the lightsnake connector cable in the port. A little pressure on the cable plug left or right or up or down and the connection would be broken and the lights on the end of the lightsnake went out. This made life difficult in getting things set up in the console I put my xbox 360s into, because after plugging everthing in (wires all exit out of the back of the console), I'd have to rotate the xbox 360 90 degrees to get it facing the right way, and was constantly disconnecting the lightsnake cable. I'd turn the xbox around again, and see the lightsnake is still plugged in fine. Touch it slightly and the lights come back on. So if you use the back side USB ports on the 360s, take care in positioning and plugging in the cable; you may have to position the cable in the plug once you have gotten the xbox rotated around to ensure its activated.

I had NO PROBLEMS using the lightsnake in the front USB ports on the 360s console.
