Powered by the same technology behind many of today's greatest hits, Avid Recording Studio instantly transforms your Mac or PC into a full-featured studio. Capture guitars, instruments, and vocals in pristine, 24-bit/48 kHz quality with the included Pro Tools SE recording software and M-Audio Fast Track audio interface. Then fatten your guitar sound, deepen the groove, and get clean, pristine tones with Pro Tools SE. You can also add backing tracks with loops from the huge included library, then polish your songs and share them with the world. Avid Recording Studio makes it easy to create stunning audio projects—even if you've never recorded before.
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 guitar, vocals, and more
The included Fast Track audio interface delivers the same M-Audio technology used by the pros, giving you far better sound than most standard-issue PC audio cards. Just plug it into your computer's USB port, connect speakers or headphones, and start making music. You can connect a microphone and guitar to record both simultaneously, and much more. Go ahead—free your inner rock star.
Over 100 virtual instruments
After you record your own tracks, you can use the included "virtual" instruments to add even more depth and variety to your music. Pro Tools SE features over 100 studio-quality virtual instruments—from piano, organ, and synth, to guitars, bass, strings, and percussion—so you can create complete songs without a band.
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.

I brought it home and it seamed pretty simple to set up. That is until it didn't work. It comes with a quick start guide and that's it. If you want more support, you have to sign up an account with Avid.The Pro Tools SE says that it is compatible with XP but it didn't work and Avid doesn't offer support for it. You think they would offer support since they package Pro Tools with their product. I'm taking it back. You have to spend a little more if you want something that works. Not happy with this product.
This is a perfect way to get started with recording with a condenser microphone. I was disappointed to find out that the pro tools SE did NOT work with my computer even though my computer is compatiable. Although it is good for recording, I currently use it with audacity and I am satisfied with the interface.
lot of background noise while recording that cant get rid of and pro tools se doesn't even work
This product is exactly the basic thing that you will need to record, you can get it for a good price and the quality is good, i can't say anything more than I'm completely satisfied, also it is perfect to carry everywhere and you can put it in the same bag of your guitar. About the software , don't expect too much, you will get what you paid. Fortunately I already had another version. Also you can use another software and it will work perfectly.
I bought this about a week ago and I've had lots of problems with the included program (Pro Tools SE) already. First of all, this error keeps coming up, and it wont let me play the song, record the song, or save the song. I'd work on a song for an hour, and then this would come up and I'd lose everything. Then, this white noise would just randomly appear in the middle of my songs. Last, sometimes it just wont respond at all. It freezes, and then you have to restart the program, and once again, lose what youve worked on for that song. As far as I can tell, the interface works just fine. But, unless you know what these errors are, and how to fix them, dont buy this.
Dont listen to newbie above. I am A professional and nothing is easier or better for the price than this gadget. Connected a usb keyboard through a netbook and to this and now i have pro hammond organ through a freaking netbook!!! sounds great through a pa system!!
I've had this product for a little over a week and I am not satisfied at all with the $130 spent. First, I needed to buy a converter for my headphone because the interface only takes a 1/4 jack. When I finally hooked it up, I could only hear out of one ear which was very annoying. I looked through the manuals and tried to get help from Avid customer service but that was a fail. When I hooked my electric guitar up to the interface I had to do a trial and error to get a loud enough sound and almost blew my ear out trying to mess with the Guitar Gain know on the hardware which, in my opinion is too sensitive. I'll try my acoustic guitar with it later and hopefully that works, but if I hadn't lost my receipt this piece of plastic would be right back at the store, that's guaranteed.
