What Makes the Session Music Producer System Different?
The included Producer USB microphone provides a more streamlined and enjoyable user experience than other USB microphones on the market, because most USB microphones require the user to plug headphones into their computer's audio out jack instead of the microphone itself. This setup results in latency--a processing delay between when a sound goes into a computer and when it comes out of speakers or headphones. Since the Producer USB microphone provides a shorter path between the sound input and output, it delivers near-zero latency so users can monitor their performances in real time, which allows them to improve the quality of their delivery.
In addition, Session Music Producer provides a complete, integrated hardware/software solution. The Producer USB microphone is designed to work seamlessly with the included Session recording software. Users can simply install the Session software, connect the microphone to the computer via USB and start recording right away--no complex setups or configuration hassles. The combination of Session software and the Producer USB microphone is the perfect way to begin exploring computer-based audio production, from music making to voiceovers, podcasting and other multimedia projects.
"Making music should be a fun process. Unfortunately, many newcomers to the world of digital recording are put off because the technology interferes with the creative process," said Tony McCall, vice president of M-Audio's consumer group. "The Session Music Producer system eliminates much of the complexity in home computer recording, enabling the user to tap into their inspiration and freely express their creativity."
