Gina3G is the third generation of the budget priced, professional quality digital audio recorder. The original Gina premiered seven years ago to critical acclaim and since then Echo has been perfecting the art of making high quality recording products at affordable prices. The new Gina3G brings you the best features of Gina24, but with better converters, dual mic preamps, and MIDI!

Gina3G is perfect for the budget-minded musician who wants to get into digital recording without sacrificing quality for price. You won't need a mixer or studio monitors to get started here. Gina3G has all you need: 2 universal inputs with mic preamps, 6 balanced analog outputs, and a headphone output. ADAT lightpipe, optical and coaxial S/PDIF, and MIDI are included as well; so as your studio grows, Gina3G will be able to work with all your new gear. It comes with a 8' cable and PCI card that connects to the audio interface. Gina3G is compatible with PCI-X (3.3 or 5 volt) motherboards and Power Mac G5 computers, as well as older systems.
