The Focusrite Musician's Home Recording Starter Kit from B&H is designed to provide the tools you need to begin recording to your DAW. It includes the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB interface, an Audio-Technica AT2020 large-diaphragm condenser mic, an Audio-Technica AT2021 small-diaphragm condenser mic, a pair of closed-back headphones, a 49-key USB MIDI controller, 2 tripod microphone stands with fixed booms, a round pop-filter with gooseneck, and two XLR microphone cables.
The Scarlett 2i2 is a 2-in and 2-out USB interface, capable of recording both included mics simultaneously. It can track your audio in sample rates up to 96 kHz in 24-bit quality. You can monitor your recording and playback via the included closed-back headphones. The included AT2020 large-diaphragm condenser and the AT2021 small-diaphragm condenser allow you to mic a variety of sources, including vocals, percussion, acoustic guitars, and more while the pop filter will keep your performances free of plosives. The two tripod mic stands and XLR cables provide flexibility in setup and use. With the 49-key USB MIDI controller you can trigger virtual instruments or any other USB MIDI compatible software.
Focusrite 's second-generation Scarlett 2i2 is a portable audio interface designed specifically for use in a portable computer environment. Lightweight at 0.6 kg, the device sports two inputs, two outputs, instrument/line switches, 48V Phantom power, direct monitoring, a discrete headphone output, and the ability to draw power via USB. It's designed to operate handily at resolutions and sample rates of up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and its combination front-panel inputs render it suitable for tracking instruments with much in the way of headroom and little in the way of distortion.
In addition to its two balanced monitor outputs, the Scarlett 2i2 offers a volume-controllable headphone output on the front. Metal gain controls and a red metal chassis provide a durable construction which can be taken on the road. The 2i2 provides a round-trip latency as low as 2.74 ms at 96 kHz, allowing you to record and monitor processed sound sources in real time.
An included Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative pack is enhanced by a suite of Focusrite Scarlett plug-ins, a set of tools that includes compression, AEQ, gating, and reverb. The Novation Bass Station software synthesiser can be used to add bass or melody, and a sample pack from Loopmasters contains drum loops and sound effects. Ableton Live is included to boot. Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, and VST) delivers modules based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 AEQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. Also included in this bundle is the Softube Time and Tone Pack for further sonic exploration within your chosen DAW.
The Audio-Technica AT2041SP is a recording microphone package configured to suite any recording budget. The package consists of the AT2020 cardioid condenser microphone and AT2021 small-diaphragm condenser recording microphone.
The combination of the two microphones provide the flexibility to accurately record vocals and instruments in project and home recording studios. The microphones exhibit a wide frequency response and cardioid polar patterns for accurate detail and minimal residual noise.
The HPC-A30 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen are designed for monitoring audio in studio, field, mobile, and DJ applications. They feature 50mm drivers that provide a frequency response of 18Hz to 22kHz for accurate reproduction of your audio.
The ear cups on the HPC-A30 have an around-ear (circumaural), closed-back design, allowing for the increased isolation often desired while tracking or monitoring playback. Additionally, the ear cups can be pivoted for single-ear monitoring. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. A padded and adjustable headband provides comfort during extended use. The 32 ohm impedance allows for ample volume when used with mobile devices. The headphones have a single-sided, 9.8-foot cable that terminates in a 3.5mm stereo connector. A 1/4" adapter is included for additional compatibility.
The Oxygen 49 IV from M-Audio features not only forty-nine velocity-sensitive full size keys, but also ships with several music software titles that allows for immediate music making. With the additional array of assignable knobs, pads and faders, the controller provides comprehensive control over the included and other software, facilitating the recording and mixing of music without ever reaching for a mouse.
Aside from the velocity-sensitive keys for playing chords, bass lines, and melodies, eight knobs are available for tweaking effects plug-ins and virtual instruments, along with eight velocity-sensitive pads for triggering samples or finger drumming. And for mixing and controlling the master output, nine faders are available along with dedicated transport controls and track-up and -down buttons that can initiate play, stop, and record in the DAW environment right from the controller.
The controller offers out-of-the-box integration with many DAWs including Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase and more, with the controls instantly mapped to key parameters in the DAW. Built-in customisable mapping presets can be easily adapted to work with favourite effects plug-ins and virtual instruments, and the factory presets map the various controls to the bundled SONiVOX Twist virtual instruments. Also included are Ableton Live Lite and Xpand!2, a multitimbral workstation offering four active sound slots or parts per patch.
The Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom features durable, steel construction. The 31.5" boom arm allows you to angle the mic however you need it. An ergonomic twist-action clutch helps adjust the height of the stand, while the reinforced tripod base and non-slip feet keep it firmly and sturdily in place. The Auray MS-5230F mic stand collapses for easy transport.
The Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck features double-layered nylon to greatly reduce noise from aspirated plosives like "p" and "b" sounds. The PFSS-55's double-layered nylon filter gently disperses the explosive rush of air from speaking and breathing, while protecting your microphone from corrosive moisture. The flexible gooseneck makes it easy to position the filter exactly where you need it, the spring-loaded clamp provides fast and easy mounting and the locking bolt holds the PFSS-55 firmly into place. These features make the PFSS-55 Pop Filter ideal for desktops and also compatible with microphone stands.
The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (20') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces and recorders; or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well-suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.
Studio Elite 4000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with POE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrix XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
