Digidesign has announced the availability of two new personal studio system bundles that each offer popular products from Digidesign and M-Audio.

PRO TOOLS MUSIC CREATION STUDIO

The Pro Tools Music Creation Studio bundle features an Mbox 2 Factory system, which includes the Mbox 2 audio interface and Pro Tools LE 7.4 software, along with over $1000 worth of Digidesign and Bomb Factory plug-ins.
The bundle also includes an M-Audio Nova large capsule cardioid microphone, an M-Audio Axiom 25 advanced 25-key USB MIDI controller keyboard and M-Audio Studiophile AV40 desktop monitors.

Dusty DiMercurio, marketing manager for Digidesign personal studio products, told us, “These packages provide users with everything they need to get started creating pro-sounding music right away—all for a compelling price savings. Users can purchase either a basic or enhanced personal studio system package—complete with all the Digidesign and M-Audio hardware and software they need, including the cables to pull it all together—all for a fraction of the combined cost of the individual components.�
