M-Audio Adds Pro Tools | First Software to Their Audio Interfaces and Controllers

By in Music Creation, Pro Mixing

M-Audio has spent decades making musical hardware that is used all around the world, everywhere from world-famous studios to performance stages to bedroom or rehearsal-room studios. When designing our equipment, M-Audio strives to make the studio and stage experience as creative and fun as possible without any limits. We are constantly reviewing what works best for musicians, producers, engineers and content creators. When creating our latest line of audio interfaces, our goal was to make professional recording simple, and make sure that we offered the most robust, intuitive and exciting software package. We had no doubt— the best solution was Avid Pro Tools. This, without question, was where our fellow musicians would want to go with us, to capture their sound and ideas.

Avid Pro Tools is the industry standard in creating music, and now we include Pro Tools | First with all of our M-Track C-Series Audio/MIDI interfaces, as well as our renowned CTRL, Code, Oxygen, Hammer and Keystation USB/MIDI keyboard controllers. The result is we’ve paired the greatest studio hardware with an amazing DAW. We worked tirelessly to craft a software bundle that fits the needs of a diverse range of musicians, producers, engineers, and content creators. Since everyone’s production styles are different, we’ve carefully picked unique bundles for all of our hardware that includes Pro Tools | First and packaged it with some of the most powerful virtual instruments, and effects. You’ll get all the sounds you’ve been looking for, all in one spot.

In our C-Series line of audio interfaces, we’ve added the Eleven Lite plugin, with over 20 high- quality guitar amp, and effect models, X-Pand!2, a multi-timbral workstation, Mini-Grand, a premium recreation of a Grand piano, and Strike, an expressive drum instrument and arranger. We’ve also added Pro Tools | First compatibility to a range of virtual instruments for our line of keyboard controllers, with Velvet, a VI that combines some of the most sought-after electric pianos from the 60s and 70s into one instrument. Also included is compatibility with Hybrid 3, a virtual synth that enables users to manipulate virtual analog sounds with ease, Loom, an additive synth for creating lush sounds and textures, and also with Vacuum Pro, a polyphonic analog synth with a vacuum tube modeling circuit. Combined with Pro Tools | First, this software lineup is unbeatable.

M-Audio and Avid are excited to announce this game-changing software bundle with our hardware. We can’t wait to hear the reaction from artists and producers. And since we want everyone to experience this great creative software, we’re also extending this software bundle offer to existing M-Audio hardware users.
