Powered by the same technology behind many of today's greatest hits, Avid® Recording Studio instantly transforms your Mac or PC into a full-featured studio. Capture guitars, instruments, and vocals in pristine, 24-bit/48 kHz quality with the included Pro Tools® SE recording software and M-Audio® Fast Track® audio interface. Then fatten your guitar sound, deepen the groove, and get clean, pristine tones with Pro Tools SE. You can also add backing tracks with loops from the huge included library, then polish your songs and share them with the world. Avid Recording Studio makes it easy to create stunning audio projects—even if you've never recorded before.
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 (3 GB!) audio loop library so you can play along with drum grooves or add your own percussion, bass, and instrument lines.
Record guitar, vocals, and more
The included Fast Track® audio interface delivers the same M-Audio® technology used by the pros, giving you far better sound than most standard-issue PC audio cards. Just plug it into your computer's USB port, connect speakers or headphones, and start making music. You can connect a microphone and guitar to record both simultaneously, and much more. Go ahead—free your inner rock star.
Over 100 virtual instruments
After you record your own tracks, you can use the included "virtual" instruments to add even more depth and variety to your music. Pro Tools SE features 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 Fast Track interface is also compatible with Pro Tools® M-Powered™ software—the same recording software used by studio professionals around the world.
