M-Audio Session KeyStudio
Avid's M-Audio division has relased the Session KeyStudio bundle, designed to provide PC users with an quick, inexpensive, all-in-one method of creating music. The package combines a 49-note USB keyboard with the company's Session software, which in its KeyStudio version can create complete songs using multi-tracking and over 2GB of pre-recorded loops, such as drums, bass guitars and pianos. While not nearly as powerful as Avid's famous Pro Tools setups, the KeyStudio does have the unique advantage of being priced at $99 while including all necessary hardware.
