iO2 Express Audio Interface
The compact Alesis iO2 EXPRESS audio-recording interface is ideal for home studios and portable recording setups. The 2-channel USB interface for Mac and PC-based systems enables you to record at up to 24-bit resolution for input into virtually all DAW, recording, and performance software.
The Alesis i02 EXPRESS recording interface is small enough to comfortably fit into your mobile recording rig, laptop bag, or backpack, yet it contains high-quality components and circuitry suitable for the studio.
Flexible recording and playback
The i02 EXPRESS interface's discrete-design preamplifiers and true 48-volt phantom power ensure that you capture microphones' complete signal. High quality analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters ensure that every detail of your session or performance gets recorded â and played back on your monitoring system. It's class compliant, so you can use the plug-and-play Alesis iO2 EXPRESS with virtually any computer.
The iO2 EXPRESS is USB bus powered so you won't need to carry a bulky power supply, and its performance is optimized for minimal laptop battery drain so you'll be able to track long sessions and gigs remotely.
The iO2 EXPRESS has 2 input channels. Each channel has an XLR microphone input, a 1/4" TRS insert for external effects units, and a 1/4" TS jack that works with line-level sources and can accommodate direct connection of guitars.
The Alesis iO2 EXPRESS sends and receives 2 audio channels on a single USB cable for simple, universal interface. You can monitor your sessions on any studio monitoring or other loudspeaker system via dual 1/4" balanced outputs. For remote tracking and alternative playback, the iO2 EXPRESS has a 1/4" TRS headphone output.
The iO2 EXPRESS features traditional MIDI In and Out jacks for playing and controlling software with keyboard and pad controllers, workstations, and other MIDI-compatible instruments.
Each channel has a gain trim control, and there's a master level control for optimal gain staging. When monitoring on headphones, you'll appreciate the dedicated volume control.
You can also visually monitor levels and operation using the tricolor, stereo metering tree and lighted status indicators.

M-Audio StudioPro 3 Desktop Audio Monitor
The M-Audio StudioPro 3 active monitor features powerful amplification, a custom-tuned cabinet, optimized speaker design, and advanced crossover technology for the best possible sound. Magnetic shielding prevents this desktop audio monitor from interfering with your computer or video monitor.
Stereo Auxiliary Input and Headphone Output
For maximum flexibility, a stereo aux input allows you to plug in a secondary audio source (such as your portable music player) in addition to the main RCA inputs in the back. The volume control works on both inputs simultaneously. Additionally, there is a stereo headphone output next to the aux jack that mutes the sound coming out of the speakers and redirects it to your headphones.
The custom bass reflex port design discharges very low-frequency signals and delivers a smooth, substantial bass response. Need more? The rear-panel bass boost gives you additional low-frequency gain and makes the monitors versatile for different spaces and listening preferences.
High-frequency audio signals tend to be fairly directional. That's why wedge-shaped monitor pads are included to help point your StudioPro 3s directly at your ears for an optimal listening sweet spot.
Provides a more stable performance with a special medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and unique interior reinforcement designed to absorb vibration and impact generated under extreme conditions. Includes carefully placed acoustic material that makes the StudioPro 3 sound much bigger than it is--resulting in a smooth, natural bass response.

I had to make three changes to the mic stand so that it could 1) hold the weight of the mic up 2) keep the mic on the stand and 3) keep the stand from tipping over The only reason I gave it a 3 star is because the mic is decently good and the speakers are alright (the chord they give you to connect them together was garbage so I had to buy a new one) and the iO2 Epress is pretty good Overall don't buy this package there are better ones out there
Not able to install the software...it is asking for e-license number or activation code.
I bought this set up after reading the reviews and im so glad that I made the purchase. Speakers sound great, the mic stand is pretty solid. the mic is outstanding. the io2 interface does what I need it to do and the sounds come out clean and crisp when I hook my mic or guitar up to it. If your looking to start a home studio and need to stay with in a budget this is definitly a great inexpensve way to start. the only thing i would do further is buy some better mic cables cause the ones that do come with the package are a not so great, feel cheap but they do thier job.
I'm a 22 year old producer. i been working with many DWA's since i was 15. from pro-tools to sonar. from cubase to cool edit. you name it. and i have to say that this package went far beyond my expectations. however the driver that the io2 comes with isnt very helpful, after downloading the iso4all driver everything went smooth. Cubase comes with this package as well wich i really think is a plus cause once you register your cubase product you have access to all its features, which include being able to install more vst plug ins. i installed waves and autotune (yes im a hip hop producer)and this works wonders... no joke. the mic is great the speakers are good for their size. and the stand is very sturdy. i would recomend adding the voxguard isolation panel and a pair of nice headphones ( thats what i did) and this would be the ultimate in-home studio package
The iO2 Express Audio Interface - I love the compact size of this unit and the ability for Line Level, XLR Microphone with Phantom power, or Midi input sources. After downloading and installing the ASIO-4ALL drivers and some minor adjustments this unit works perfectly on my Windows 7 64bit laptop. M-Audio StudioPro 3 Desktop Audio Monitors - Perfect size monitors for duplicating car audio or portable audio playback. And the size fits even my small work space. The headphone output is a plus, I haven't tried the line input on these Monitors yet but it seems like this could be useful if used without a computer. V63M Condenser Studio Microphone - Good clean Condenser Studio Microphone with a solid mounting adapter that securely mounts to the Musician's Gear MS-220 Tripod Mic Stand with Fixed Boom. And all the cables you'll need to get setup and recording your next big hit and commercial jingle which is what I bought this setup for. Gear One XLR Microphone Cable and LiveWire 1/4" RCA Dual Patch Cable The only downside that keeps this from being a 5 star recording package is all of the steps you have to go through just to install and license the Steinberg Cubase LE 5 Software that is not really worth the trouble to install.
