Comprehensive kit with hard drive, audio interface, virtual instrument, and MIDI controller.
This package from PCAudioLabs puts their 160GB FireWire External Hard Drive together with the Slate Digital SSD4EX Virtual Instrument, an Akai MPD18 MIDI controller, and a Phonic FIREFLY 202 portable FireWire interface.
At the heart of Steven Slate Drums 4.0 or SSD4 is the SSD Player, a state of the art Mac/PC (VST, RTAS, AU) drum sampler built from the ground up by Slate Digital's award winning development team. The SSD Player is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Loading kits, customizing kits, mixing kits, loading and auditioning MIDI grooves, customizing MIDI maps, and routing discretely to your workstation are easy with the SSD Player. It even lets you load your own drum samples to mix in with the Slate drum kits. New in 4.0 are the DELUXE series kits, which were recorded with extreme precision, resulting in a remarkably natural playability. In SSD4 EX, you'll also find Rock, Metal, Vintage, Indie, and Funk Deluxe drum kits.
To play your own drum patterns with the SSD4EX, this kit also includes the Akai MPD18 USB MIDI pad controller. The Akai MPD18 MIDI Pad Controller is an easy way to add genuine MPC pads to your setup. This MIDI-over-USB pad controller for DJs, programmers, producers, and other musicians is built around the pads and controls from Akai Professional's industry-standard MPC series. The MPD18 is an expressive and intuitive instrument ideal for the studio and stage.
You can record some guitars or vocals to add to your new kits and loops using the The Firefly 202 Portable FireWire Interface from Phonic. It’s an easy-to-use audio interface for performers and songwriters who want to record guitars, keyboards, vocals, and more to the computer. It features 2 balanced 1/4" inputs and 2 balanced 1/4" outputs, which are sent to and from the computer in real time through the 24-bit/96kHz FireWire connection.
To back up all of your new projects, there’s the PCAudioLabs 160GB FireWire External Hard Drive. With the PCAudioLabs' 160GB FireWire External Hard Drive, it's now as easy as to back up your data as it is important. That's especially true if you use your computer to record your music. The external FireWire drive is pre-formatted for use with most computers. All you do is plug it in and you're ready to rock, or save, as the case may be.
