Product Description

The Propellerhead Balance USB production package has everything you need to create anything you want.

2-in 2-out audio interface

Sounds as good as it looks. Works as great as it feels. Propellerhead has taken care of all the tedious stuff - calibration, setup, the works. You can concentrate on having fun instead: making music. With two channels of pristine audio recording, and with inputs for all your gear, your instruments are always connected and you are always ready to record.

Integrated music recording environment

Balance is perfectly integrated with Reason and Reason Essentials. With Clip Safe you'll never lose a good take to distortion again. Big Meter lets you tune your guitar and set the levels from across the room. Use it with Propellerhead software, other pro audio apps, or even iTunes -- Balance works with everything.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Reason 7 with Balance interface"
Overall: I was already looking for Reason 7 as my first DAW and needed an interface and when I saw the deal for both at a great price from ZZounds I jumped on it. They shipped it real fast and there where zero problems buying from ZZounds. As far as Reason 7 it is absolutely mind blowing. The guys over there in Sweden created a killer software package. I am from the old reel to reel studio days so this thing is like going to heaven. The manual is perfect. I LOVE reason 7. Thanks guys, Rob W.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This setup is ideal"
Overall: For a home studio, this setup is just awesome. Reason works with every DAW pretty much, this lill smooth flat black high quality balance box is sick, very intuative for just about anyone starting up. Im looking forward to draggin' this to Paris, shack up in a cheap apt for a month and record.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
