Digidesign Avid Keystudio
Powered by the same technology behind many of today's greatest hits, Avid KeyStudio instantly transforms your Mac or PC into a full-featured recording studio. The streamlined combination of Avid hardware and software-the 49-note, velocity-sensitive M-Audio KeyStudio keyboard and Pro Tools SE music creation application-makes it easy to turn your inspiration into a professional-quality song. Just connect the keyboard to your computer, fire up the software, choose from over 100 different instrument sounds, and start playing. You can build out your composition with loops from the huge included library, then add effects, polish your tracks, and share them with the world.
Make music in minutes:
With integrated learning and creation tools, Pro Tools SE makes it easy to start creating all styles of music-from hip-hop and electronic, to pop, funk, jazz, rock, and blues. There's a wide array of music creation templates and a huge (3GB) audio loop library so you can play along with drum grooves or add your own percussion, bass and instrument lines.
Professional 49-note keyboard:
Whether you're just getting started or playing professionally, one touch will tell you that the 49-note KeyStudio keyboard is a pleasure to play. That's because the KeyStudio is built with the same M-Audio technology used by music professionals on stage and in studios around the world.
Play piano, synths, and more:
Use the 49-note KeyStudio keyboard to play the huge virtual instrument library in Pro Tools SE. The software includes over 100 studio-quality virtual instruments-from piano, organ, and synth, to guitars, bass, strings, and percussion-so you can create complete songs without a band.
Pro Tools SE turns your computer into a full-featured recording studio, complete with powerful effects to mix your tracks together. Make professional-sounding mixes by applying reverb, delay, EQ, compression, chorus, flanger, and many others. Pro Tools SE also delivers classic guitar amp and distortion effects to create great guitar sounds-without a noisy amplifier.
Ready for the future:
If you want even more tracks, effects, virtual instruments, and loops in the future, the included M-Audio Micro USB interface is also compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software-the same recording software used by studio professionals around the world.
