M-Audio Session KeyStudio Keyboard Studio

M-Audio Session™ KeyStudio™ is the make-music-now keyboard studio for the PC. Its combination of the KeyStudio 49-note USB keyboard and included Session music software gives you much more flexibility than standalone keyboards that have a limited number of built-in sounds. With Session KeyStudio, you can use the keyboard to play hundreds of different instrument sounds—including piano, organ, synths and more—in the included Session software. Setup is simple—just install and launch the software, plug in the keyboard and included high-performance audio interface, and start playing. Session KeyStudio also turns your PC into a full-featured recording studio that's so easy to use, you'll be laying tracks and mixing professional-sounding songs in no time.
