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: simple, reliable, portable.
Perfect for desktop and mobile recording, the 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.
We could have stopped right there, but it’s not our way to stop when we can give you even more for your money. So we included an internal analog mixer with zero-latency monitoring, enabling you to monitor recorded tracks and overdubs with no annoying delay time. We included a USB cable, too!
Studio One Artist 2 makes recording easy
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.
Access powerful editing tools without wading through menus. Load and save audio clips, MIDI files, effects, and VIs by drag-and-drop. Take advantage of multitrack comping, multitrack MIDI editing, and transient detection and editing with groove extraction. Enhance your music with 26 Native Effects 32-bit effects and virtual instrument plug-ins plus 10+ GB of third-party software, loops, and instruments.
Score big-time with Notion music-notation and composition 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.
Only Notion allows you to create a score on your Mac or Windows computer and transfer it to your iPad (Notion for iPad not included), where you can continue to edit and play back your music. Notion plays well with others: You can share files via MusicXML and use Notion as a ReWire host or slave.
Playing parts is a snap with the PS49 USB MIDI keyboard
Studio One and Notion 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).
The PS49 auto-configures with Studio One, so no setup is required. Quickly tweak all plug-in parameters using Studio One's unique Control Link feature, control virtual instruments with no setup hassles, easily map volume automation, and more.
An Octave Shift button lets you transpose the keyboard up to +4 or -3 octaves. And of course you can send Program Change commands and change the MIDI Out channel. A USB cable is included.
Capture the subtle nuances with an M7 microphone.
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.
Large diaphragm microphones like the M7 tend to “warm up” a sound and are a great choice for recording vocals and for recording instruments when you want a “deep” sound.
The M7 can be phantom powered from the AudioBox USB interface and comes with a mic-stand adapter, nine-foot (three-meter) mic cable, desktop mic stand, and soft carry bag.
Hear every detail with HD3 studio monitoring headphones.
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 adults and children.
