Anyone in need of a complete recording package for recording vocals for use in songs, soundtracks, Podcasts, or voice-overs might want to check out the new M-Audio Avid Vocal Studio. This vocal recording pack includes both Avid Pro Tools SE music creation software and the M-Audio Producer USB microphone.
The Avid Vocal Studio system offers a streamlined combination of Avid software (Pro Tools SE) and hardware (the studio-quality Producer USB mic). To get started with a recording, connect the microphone to your computer, launch Pro Tools, and blast away. Within Pro Tools SE, you can edit and enhance your recordings, add effects and instruments, and more.
Pro Tools SE comes with integrated learning and creation tools, such as the 3 GB audio loop library covering many styles of music (from hip-hop and electronic to pop, funk, jazz, rock, and blues), the more than 100 virtual instruments (pianos, organs, synths, guitars, basses, strings, percussion, and so forth) or the effects section with professional reverb, delay, EQ, compression, chorus, flanger, and classic guitar amp and distortion effects. If you want even more tracks, effects, virtual instruments, and loops in the future, you can use the Producer USB microphone with Pro Tools M-Powered software instead of Pro Tools SE.
The M-Audio Producer USB mic features a large diaphragm to capture the subtle details of vocal performances. It sports a large cardioid capsule protected by wire mesh, a durable metal body, 1/8-inch stereo output, USB connector, 16-Bit recording at 44.1 or 48 kHz, and much more.
The HP10 stereo headphones from Samson provide high-quality audio in a lightweight and comfortable design. Ideal for listening to music, editing audio, or playing computer games, the headphones feature full-range 40mm drivers to produce crisp, clear audio with a wide frequency response.
The adjustable headband has thick padding to provide a snug and comfortable fit. The cushioned, closed-back earcups provide lasting comfort and noise isolation, blocking out unwanted environmental noise. The headphones have a standard 3.5mm stereo mini plug and a 1/4" adapter, letting you connect to a wide variety of consumer and professional audio devices.
