Playing parts is a snap with the PS49 USB MIDI keyboard.

Digital Mixing Redefined. Again.

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). 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 every nuance with the M7 condenser microphone.

Get your mic collection off to a good start with the M7 large-diaphragm condenser microphone. Condenser mics are the overwhelming choice of recording studio professionals, enabling you to capture musical details, harmonics, and subtle nuances that would get lost with dynamic mics. Large-diaphragm condenser microphones like the M7 tend to “warm up” a sound, making them go-to microphones for recording vocals and a wide range of instruments.
