Turn your classroom computer into a recording station with the PreSonus Music Creation Suite. Capture song ideas or create a podcast while learning the basics of recording and production. This versatile bundle makes a helpful teaching aid for a school, music lab, church, or even at home. A simple USB connection from the PreSonus AudioBox™ interface to your Mac® or PC gets you started — there's even software on-board for mixing and editing. It includes a condenser microphone, monitoring headphones, and the necessary cables and stands. A PS49 MIDI keyboard lets you add keys, bass, or percussion to the mix.
The PreSonus Music Creation Suite is a complete recording solution for classrooms or labs.
Here's what you get:
AudioBox USB recording interface: An interface with the right number of connections for a student or someone just starting out. The front panel has two combination mic/instrument inputs. You can plug in the included M7 mic and add another mic or an electric guitar. On the back, there's a MIDI input for the included keyboard.
Studio One® Artist 2 Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software: Easy-to-use music production software that lets you tweak and fine-tune recordings right on your computer screen. Create several tracks within a project and apply effects like compression and reverb just by clicking and dragging the mouse.
PS49 USB 2.0 MIDI keyboard: A great tool for somebody learning music production, MIDI keyboards like the one included here let you unlock your creativity. Rather than recording audio signals, the computer actually receives data from the keys, buttons, and dials. Think of it as "performance instructions" that can later be manipulated in the editing process — corrected, changed, sped up, or slowed down. Using the included Notion music-notation software, you can even substitute an entirely different sound or instrument.
M7 condenser microphone: Designed specifically for studio use, this mic is great for capturing clear-sounding vocals.
PS49 USB 2.0 MIDI keyboard included
HD3 studio monitoring headphones: These around-the-ear headphones are adjustable to fit both adults and children. The semi-open design provides accurate response along with enough sound isolation for monitoring your performance as well as mixing and editing.
cables and desktop mic stand
powered USB hub: Connect up to 4 USB cables via a single open USB port on your computer.
Share your recordings
Once a recording is complete, make it available online for friends and supporters. A membership to Nimbit®, PreSonus's music-sharing service, is included in this bundle. Nimbit is integrated right into the included Studio One software, and it lets you upload and share music, promote your music programs, and raise funds. Tools are provided to easily add a "storefront" page to Facebook or your website.
