It’s All There In Black and WhiteThe SP-1 Stage Piano module serves up grand pianos, Wurlitzer, classic electric pianos, FM, clavinet and more. Each preset can hold a combination of two instruments with individual settings for Mix, Octave, Detune, Velocity and Tone. Owing to a dual effects section, each preset also has its own effect settings including delay, chorus, phaser and more.
Brave New SynthThe MS-2 Polyphonic Synthesizer delivers a new, easy way to call up and edit great synth sounds. Each preset consists of sub-presets for each major section: filter, amp, mod and FX. Creating new sounds is as simple as combining these sub-presets in different ways and tweaking any associated parameters from there as desired.
Get OrganizedThe MB-3 Tone Wheel Organ authentically emulates the classic Hammond™ sound complete with rotary speaker. Standard features include nine drawbars that are pre-mapped to M-Audio brand USB MIDI controllers, percussion and variable key click, three chorus and three vibrato settings. Rotary speaker emulation includes tube overdrive, speed and tone controls to yield everything from glassy jazz chords to smoking rock leads.
Bring In The BandThe GM-4 General MIDI Module delivers 128 GM instruments plus a great GM drum kit. It instantly plays GM-compatible standard MIDI files from host applications and provides an extremely easy way of sequencing additional backing tracks.
Multiple EffectsKey Rig modules each feature their own dual effects processors for delay, chorus, phaser and more.There’s also a master effects section that further processes the combined output of all modules.
Flexible Mixing and AssignmentYou get an internal mixer and assignment controls that allow you configure independent MIDI channels for each module. But that’s not all… you can easily create splits and layers for things like left-hand bass with right-hand keys, piano/string layers and any other combination you can think of.
Use It Your WayM-Audio’s virtual racks let you use them as stand-alone instruments or with most host sequencers. Lots of people, for example, are just taking their keyboard and laptop to live performances. Compatibility with AU, VST and RTAS also means that you can use it as sound sources for your tracks in Pro Tools*, Logic, Cubase, Ableton Live, and, well, pretty much any popular music software.
*Note: Pro Tools M-Powered requires a qualified M-Audio Audio Interface
