The PreSonus® Music Creation Suite recording kit is a complete solution for classrooms, school labs, churches, and home studios! This special all-PreSonus system combines an AudioBox USB interface with Studio One® Artist music-production software, Notion music-notation and composition software, the PS49 USB MIDI keyboard, HD3 monitoring headphones, an M7 large-diaphragm condenser microphone, a free Nimbit account, a powered USB hub, and all necessary cables and mounts.
AudioBox USB Interface
Perfect for musicians, students, school music labs, churches, and classrooms, the ultra-mobile 2-channel AudioBox USB boasts high-performance Class A microphone preamplifiers, a headphone jack with level control, 48V phantom power, and professional-quality, 24-bit, 44.1/48 kHz converters. USB bus-powered, it’s compact, easy to use, ruggedly built, and designed to work perfectly with Studio One recording software but also works great with other audio software that supports ASIO or Core Audio.
Studio One Artist 2 DAW Software
Studio One Artist 2 lets you work quickly and stay focused on your inspiration. Incredibly easy to learn, it offers unlimited tracks and plug-in instantiations and delivers features not normally found in entry-level DAWs. Studio One automatically configures to the AudioBox USB interface and is compatible with any ASIO-, Windows Audio-, and Core Audio-compliant interface.
Notion Music-Notation Software
Compose, play back, and edit music with ease! Notion makes it simple to write and edit your musical ideas quickly, then hear them played back with superb orchestral samples recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, as well as guitar samples by Neil Zaza, bass samples by Victor Wooten, and drum samples by Roy ‘Futureman’ Wooten. You can even perform scores using Notion as a live instrument and save your performance.
PS49 USB MIDI Keyboard
Studio One’s virtual instruments provide the sounds; the PS49 USB 2.0 49-key, unweighted, velocity-sensitive MIDI keyboard provides the action—and the controls. You get seven assignable controllers, including pitch and modulation wheels, a volume slider, and four control knobs, plus a sustain-pedal jack (pedal not included).
Condenser mics are the overwhelming choice of recording studio professionals, due to the very small mass that must be moved by the in-coming sound wave. This means you can capture musical details, harmonics, and subtle nuances that would get lost with dynamic mics. From vocals to acoustic guitar recordings, you’ll hear the difference.
PreSonus’ HD3 headphones take advantage of a patented, semi-open sound chamber to deliver extended low frequencies. Lightweight and durable, they feature a comfortable design for extended use in class or at home and are adjustable to fit students and adults.
