M-Audio Brings Music to the Masses with Groundbreaking Session Software
M-Audio is proud to introduce Session™, a powerful software application that delivers a user-friendly way to create music on a computer. If you have a PC*, this new software empowers you to create loop-based music—or layers of pre-recorded segments of individual sounds—in a variety of styles and genres. You can also use the software to alter loop tempos and pitch characteristics and record traditional musical instruments directly onto a computer hard drive.
With Session, it's easy and affordable to turn your PC into a home recording studio. The software was designed with an emphasis on simplicity. The Session application greatly reduces the learning curve and lets you dive right in and begin making music almost instantly. It also scales with your abilities as you become more proficient and wish to tackle more ambitious musical projects.
If you're a beginner, the Session application allows you to easily create loop-based music. Loops are pre-recorded segments of individual sounds that, when woven together, can generate a complex and beautiful musical tapestry. Session software boasts a 2GB library of loops and instrument sounds in almost every style imaginable. By adding a MIDI keyboard, such as M-Audio's Keystation 49e, you can play and record a wide array of professional instruments—such as a grand piano or saxophone—all within the Session software. Although the loops are pre-recorded, you have the ability to not only combine musical elements, but also to alter characteristics such as tempo and pitch, and effectively customize the music to accommodate your favorite styles.
If you want even more creative control of your music, Session delivers the ability to digitally record traditional instruments directly onto the computer's hard drive. Using an audio interface, such as M-Audio's Fast Track™ USB, you can record just about any audio signal—from your favorite guitar riffs to your own vocals. Once audio has been recorded, Session software can aggregate an endless array of customer-recorded instruments and sounds with the pre-recorded loops in the library, enabling you to create unique musical compositions of your own. Once these compositions are completed, you can save songs directly to the PC or burn them on a CD for easy archiving and sharing.
Session software is currently included free-of-charge with M-Audio's Fast Track USB. Click here to learn more about Session.
