As Alesis Product Manager Nate Lane explains, “Each recording interface in the CORE family was purpose-built for different customers with different primary applications. CORE 1 has a micro-sized aluminum housing that not only makes it portable, but ready to take a beating.”

CORE 2 shares the same aluminum housing material and takes a step up with high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz recording quality and two built-in USB-powered hubs for additional gear. CORE 8 addresses a different need with a utilitarian 2U rack-mounted interface for the budget-conscious home recordist looking to record drum kits or multiple instruments or vocals at the same time — all without sacrificing mic preamp or recording quality.

The CORE Series will have the following respective street prices, CORE 1 ($49.99 USD), CORE 2 ($149.99 USD), CORE 8 ($299.99 USD).
