CableJive, You, Pintrest, <3

Pintrest has taken the web by storm. It turns out that sharing the things you love and finding out who else has the same interests is all we’ve ever wanted to do with the internet! What’s really awesome for companies like us, is that if people like your stuff they can “pin it” and add it to their board in an instant, to remember for later or share with their followers.

Recently I stumbled upon a “CableJive / Pintrest” Google search result. Having not ever been on Pintrest at the time, I was both intrigued and a little confused. Upon investigation, in a pleasant surprise, I found a ton of CableJive stuff had been pinned already! From our old duaLink, to the iStubz, and even our new ChromaSync & ProJive cables, it’s very cool to see people who are truly interested in what we do. So to those of you who took the time to pin a CableJive product, we thank you! You saw something in us that moved you to save it or share it, and for that we are honored. Same to all who pin our stuff moving forward. We love you all! Happy pinning!

ProJive Instrument and XLR w/ Android Devices

If you can’t tell, we’re super excited about our new ProJive XLR and ProJive Instrument cables. We also recently got our 1st Android tablet into the office, a Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. All things considered, it’s a perfect time to give our Android brethren some love. Here’s what to expect when you get ProJive’n on your favorite desert-themed OS device.

Apps Tested: Voice Recorder (free), RecForge Lite (free)

ProJive XLR

Just as with the iPhone, which you can see in our ProJive XLR video, this cable has no problem working on Android devices. Simply open your favorite audio capturing app, plug in, and record. The quality of the audio seems to be dependent on the app your using, as we found “RecForge” captured much higher-quality audio than “Voice Recorder.”

ProJive Instrument

By connecting the ProJive Instrument cable to an electric guitar, and opening either of the apps mentioned above, you are able to capture the guitar’s audio. Great for practicing, brainstorming ideas, or working on song parts. As with the XLR cable, audio quality is dependent on the app you’re using.

However, in my quest to find a more suitable, Garage Band-esq app for the Android, I ran into quite a barrier: there isn’t one yet. It seems Android’s OS has some issues when it comes to low-latency audio capturing. I found a great post on Gear Diary exploring the issues facing music production on Android devices, which all aspiring Android musicians should read: ow.ly/af3K4.

It does appear that these issues are being worked on, so hopefully we’ll start seeing some quality music production apps arrive on Android soon. When they do, the ProJive Instrument cable will be ready help you conquer those too!

 

ProJive XLR: Professional Mic on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad


I filmed a quick video showing how easy it is to connect the ProJive XLR cable for high quality audio recording on the go. Check it out, then get yours and start recording!

ProJive Instrument & XLR Cables Available Now!

Musicians: we have not forgotten you! Our new ProJive Instrument & ProJive XLR cables have arrived!

ProJive cables are the easiest, most straight-forward approach to connecting your mic, guitar, bass, & more to your iPod, iPad, iPhone, Android, Macbook or any other compatible device. Simply open up Garage Band, or any of the myriad of apps designed for audio recording, and get to work! Complete with a standard 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo-mini port, you can connect headphones to keep your work to yourself, or output direct to your home stereo, powered speakers, or amp to really bring the house down. You will need to have an audio recording program pre-installed on your device to use, but from there it’s plug & play. Perfect for practice, writing, demoing, recording, or any other use you could come up with.

This is CableJive’s 1st foray into the world of musician’s products, and as a musician myself, I’m really excited about it! We hope to flush out our musician’s section over the coming weeks and months, adding more complimentary products to the mix as we find them. We’re passionate about this stuff, and we know you are too, so we want your feedback! To share your thoughts about our ProJive cables, or to suggest any other musician’s products you’d like to see in our lineup, shoot us an email at service@cablejive.com.
