OVERVIEW

A complete recording system that is surprisingly affordable.

The Avid Vocal Studio transforms your computer into an easy-to-use recording studio. Powered by the same technology behind many of today's greatest hits, the system includes a streamlined combination of Avid software and hardware—the Pro Tools SE music creation application and M-Audio Producer USB microphone. Simply connect the studio-quality mic to your computer, fire up the software, and record stunning vocals for use in songs, soundtracks, podcasts, or voice-overs. Then use Pro Tools SE to polish your performance, add effects, and more. Whether you're singing the next radio hit or narrating your video production, you'll sound great with Avid Vocal Studio.

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 professional-sounding vocals and more
Created by the same engineers that design professional recording technology for studios around the world, the M-Audio Producer USB microphone features a large diaphragm to capture the subtle nuances of male and female vocal performances. And, unlike many USB mics, the included software drivers allow you to listen to your performance in real time—without the delays that otherwise plague computer-based recording. You can also use the microphone to capture instruments and other audio sources.

Effects galore
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 Producer USB microphone is also compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software—the same recording software used by studio professionals around the world.

The product is good for a beginner. The mic has pretty good quality, and the program is good for beginners. However, the program, when completely new to someone, would probably be pretty confusing. There are no instructions or annotations as to what exactly each tool does. I've worked with the professional, newest Pro Tools, so I already had an idea. But for those who don't, this would be really problematic. also, the program doesn't let you get as specific with your editing as you may like. You are limited by the individual bits, I believe, of the sounds you have recorded. Meaning, you can only cut out or move a number of specific bits, not just the parts of the audio that you want to cut out/move. This makes it challenging to edit, and means that if you screw up, you pretty much have to rerecord your track.

I grabbed this from Best Buy for 80 bucks, took a bit to install, then I had to install Mac's Quicktime. The interface is really simple, and at first glance it seems like a great buy. I got really nasty static/distortion from the Playback, and I looked online, and there's really no way to fix it. The microphone included with it, however, is really great.

Comments about Avid Vocal Studio:

This is a great product for anyone who wants to start recording on their own without the hassle of getting all of the big expensive equipment. All that is needed is the computer with the appropriate software and the Mic. This makes for easy on the go recording. However, i would not suggest this to anyone who is looking to go pro and open a studio because the Mics strong point is it's portability. For beginners to protools, this program might seem difficult to understand at first. In addition the software included is only a teaser of protools. You can buy the newer software to go along with it. Amazing for beginners.

        Comments about Avid Vocal Studio:

        This software would not load on the 1T computer in my studio which has Windows 7. It would not load on any of the 4 computers in the studio. This product is totally useless. All the computers have Quick Time and are up to date. This purchase was a total waste of money. Do not buy this product if you expect it to be utile.

          Will likely serve me well after working out the glitches w/ Avid.

          Good price point.

          Features are certainly limited & even YouTube tutorials don't focus on this SE software.

          A better tutorial included would likely make this a very good quick start up to some home stuff.

          I recommednd to a friend with the noted caveats...

          I'm not an audio expert, but I think for those musicians who want to record their ideas to share with friends, or produce an acceptable quality demos in this system will find a solution at affordable price.

          Obviously, do not expect miracles from a package which cost about one hundred dollars, especially if you're not an expert in recording, mixing and mastering audio.

            great program, i have been using it for some recording, the mic is not omni directional though.
            i discovered when i set it up in front of my 4 12 cab that you must turn the mic facing it.
            is a pain too have too have the headphones on while editing though.

            Not worth the headache

            Comments about Avid Vocal Studio:

            I don't recommend this combo unless you like errors every minute and unexplained feedback in the headphones. If you do like that, then this is for you. This was a waste of money, I wish I could return it. I have gotten zero support from Avid also. Not a good experience.
            Came with everything, including all the lemon scented failures it's brought me.
            Doesn't look bad, just operates horribly.
            Almost worthless. Can't use the software unless the mic is hooked up, and even then, it errors too frequently.

            recording made easy

            By tim sampson

            from alabama

            Comments about Avid Vocal Studio:

            i use this product to record vocals mostly and as a novice at this. i can do i pretty good mix. the plus of this product is if i go to a studio to do vocals it cost not much less than this an hour. i have done two albums with this product, lead and harmony vocals. so already it has saved me ten times what i paid for it. the only thing i dont like is that sometimes the protools program freezes or crashes, but i have a freind who has protools 8 and even his does that. so i dont believe its because its a cheaper version, just think protools needs to fix their software.
            this product has many of the same features you would find in a studio running protools but in a simple version.
            the quality of this product is very good. very sturdy.
            none better for this price.

            Awesome Mic. I use it for stop motion recording and not music. The Pro tools is great but it sometimes crashes.
