Product Description

Setting up a home studio can be both daunting and expensive. That's why we created the zZounds Producer's hardware package -- we've picked out everything you need to get started, and added a huge discount to top if off. All you'll need to do is add your own computer and software. If you need ideas for software to use with it, check out the accessories section on the right-hand side of this page.

Bundle Components:

- Audio-Technica AT2020 Studio Microphone
- Focusrite Saffire 6 USB Audio Interface

- KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2 Powered Monitor (x2)

- RaXXess Stoppit Pop Filter with Goose Neck
- CBI LowZ Microphone Cable
- On-Stage 7701 Tripod/Boom Microphone Stand

Audio-Technica AT2020 Studio Microphone

The AT2020 from Audio-Technica is the go-to condenser mic for home and project studios. It features a large, high-fidelity diaphragm perfect for recording vocals and acoustic instruments.

Focusrite Saffire 6 USB Audio Interface

The audio interface is the core of any studio -- all sound entering and leaving your computer must first pass through one, so if your interface is of poor quality then your recordings will be too. The Saffire 6 is a high-performance interface featuring Focusrite's award-winning preamp technology. It includes phantom power as well, which you will need to power your AT2020.

M-Audio KeyRig 49 USB MIDI Controller

Whatever software you're using, chances are it will have built in software synths. Soft synths are great for creating backing tracks, but using a keyboard and mouse isn't exactly the most musical way to enter notes. The M-Audio KeyRig has no sounds of its own, but it will connect to your computer via USB to help make writing music easy.

KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2 Powered Monitor

Anyone who's mixed on consumer-grade speakers can tell you; it sucks to spend hours working on a mix only to be disappointed when heard through a different pair of speakers. Studio monitors are designed to get around that problem by presenting the most authentic sound possible. That way, what you hear is what you get.

Audio-Technica ATH-M20 Closed-Back Stereo Monitor Headphones

If you're recording a vocal track over a backing track you've already created, you'll need a way to hear your mix without letting the backing track bleed through onto the recording. Regular headphones allow too much sound to escape, which can be especially problematic when using a mic as sensitive as the AT2020. The ATH-M20 from Audio-Technica features a closed-back design, keeping the sound in your headphones and out of your recording.

Hosa CSS400 Series Dual Heavy-Duty TRS Cable

The Hosa CSS400 is a dual TRS cable, perfect for hooking up your Saffire 6 interface to your RP5G2 monitors. The two cables are only lightly adhesed to each-other, allowing them to be pulled apart easily.

RaXXess Stoppit Pop Filter with Goose Neck

Keep those pesky plosives out of your recordings with the Stoppit Pop Filter from RaXXess. What is a popping plosive, you ask? It's a fancy term for a quick burst of air. Certain vocal sounds, like the "P" in people, the "D" in double, and the "B" in bump all produce plosives, which are overly emphasized by microphones (especially condenser mics).

CBI LowZ Mic Cable and On-Stage 7701 Tripod/Boom Mic Stand

The CBI LowZ Mic cable and the On-Stage 7701 Mic stand are standard accessories for microphones. Simply screw your AT2020 to the stand and then connect the mic to the Saffire 6 with the CBI LowZ cable (don't forget to turn phantom power on).

4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"When it's this easy, you won't go to bed."
Sound: The zzounds producer pack is an obvious buy. At least it was for me. Yeah, the stuff may not be top tier quality, but I've made some pretty darn good recordings with it. The mic actually surprised me with its quality. The Focusrite interface is easy as pie and the Krks are great! You also can't go qrong with the M-audio Keyrig 49, though, I suggest getting a Korg Nanopad to do drums/samples with. The only con is the cans...they are terrible...they're loose and the sound quality...yuck..they are backs ups now; in the box in the closet. Overall, I can't say (even with the headphones)that I regret my decision to buy one bit! Feature: I wish the Focusrite had rca inputs and I wish the Keyrig had some percussion/sample pads as well as midi in/out. Ease of Use: Plug and play (Mac). Can't go wrong there. Quality: Everything except the headphones are of great quality. As far as the quality of the phones, they are made well, it's just that they don't sound very good also, don't tip your head back or forth... Value: Absolutely! I'd pay for it again! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had the need for support.. The Wow Factor: I did buy it..and it is sexy. Something about a condenser mic on a boom stand with a black nylon pop filter makes me..well uh, y'know.. Overall: This setup is absolutely thorough and will not need to be upgraded (aside from me purchasing a nanopad) for a very long time. It's perfect for when you have a practice spot and keep the expensive stuff there and want to be creative and make music at home like me.

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.
