It sure seems like a lot of effort to get a project recording studio off the ground, especially if you're thinking about going digital. Once you decide which software you're going to run (an epic decision in and of itself) you've still got a ton of other purchasing decisions: which interface should I get? What mics do I need first? Should I get monitors or headphones? What kind of additional software am I going to need to start recording? The folks at zZounds feel your pain; heck, most of us have been through the same process already. We want to make professional-quality computer recording accessible to everyone, and that's why we've put together a recording bundle that's centered around one of the most successful home studio computer recording interfaces around, the DigiDesign Digi 003 Rack+.

Industry Standard Pro Tools Recording Software
Your new Digi 003 Rack+ is the key to the world of Pro Tools, the industry-standard recording software that ushered in the digital recording revolution. Pro Tools HD systems are used the world over in the most discriminating studios, and as a Pro Tools user, you'll have a worldwide support network and massive online community to exchange ideas with. You'll also be able to take projects you've been working on at home and transfer them seamlessly to a professional studio environment, and vice versa. Record drums at the studio, then bring those tracks home and overdub guitars and vocals on your own time. Collaborate on a song with like-minded producers across the globe. Hire a session vocalist in New York for your Minnesota-based project. This kind of international musical community is only possible when you tap into the power of Pro Tools. Pro Tools LE is the native version of the flagship HD system, and is both powerful and simple to learn. With 48 tracks of stereo audio supported, full-fledged MIDI capabilities, extensive virtual mixing and bussing, and pristine audio processing, you'll enjoy the same creative flexibility as any world-class studio.

High-Speed, High Fidelity FireWire Audio
The wider bandwidth that FireWire provides allows for more audio channels while maintaining stable operation. For the Digi 003, FireWire connectivity means up to eighteen channels of simultaneous I/O, and the Rack+ gives you eight microphone preamps with balanced XLR jacks that let you connect high-quality studio microphones directly to the interface, with no need for any external hardware. Individual gain and filter controls for each mic input are easily accessible along the front face of the Digi. Added to that are eight 1/4" analog inputs (including one in the front for easy D.I. instrument tracking), eight channels of ADAT I/O, and two channels of S/PDIF I/O for a hugely expandable studio rig, which is easily capable of recording full bands or even live performances all by itself. If you add additional hardware, the Digi 003's super-stable Word Clock keeps everything in sync, eliminating common problems like digital "jitter" that can otherwise taint a professional-sounding project. The 003 Rack+'s own analog-to-digital converters are top-notch, with a higher than CD-quality 24-bit depth and up to 96 kHz sampling rate. . . you'll be able to accurately capture the musical nuance of any instrument, from a high-gain guitar stack to a classical lever-harp to a warm and jazzy trap kit. There's also MIDI in, out, and thru ports for connecting external sequencers and tempo-syncing MIDI-enabled rack effects. With XLR studio and control room outputs as well as dual headphone jacks, you've got plenty of monitor routing options, and the Digi 003's rugged, streamlined, 2U chassis is equally at home in you project studio or on the road.

A Wealth Of Bundled Software
In addition to Pro Tools, the Digi 003 Rack+ comes bundles with a bounty of virtual instruments and software signal processors to get you started on fully realized, professional sounding projects right out of the box. Seven virtual instruments including the powerful BOOM! drum machine, a grand piano, a tonewheel organ and an analog synthesizer plug-in will help you realize and produce compositions of any style, from simple to complex. No fewer than seventy audio effects plug-ins are also included, ranging from compressors, equalizers, and reverbs, to phasers, delays, and pitch-shifting effects. You even get M-Audio's digital DJ software Torq LE, so you can get started on your next hip-hop masterpiece ASAP. Expand your tonal palette with thousands of third-party virtual instruments and effects plug-ins with Pro Tools' support of the RTAS plug-in format.

Add The Session Standard Bundle And Save Big On Extra Inputs And More
Want to get the most out of your new Digi 003 Rack+? zZounds has put together an amazing deal that will take your project studio to the next level. Many of the folks who work at zZounds run project studios themselves, and we've put our heads together to come up with a comprehensive package deal that'll save you hundreds of dollars as compared to buying the items separately. We start off the Session Standard Bundle with a Presonus DigiMax D8. This one-rackspace unit instantly adds eight more XLR inputs--routed via ADAT fiber optic cable--to your Rack+ for a total of eighteen high-quality mic preamps. Next up is a Furman M8DX power conditioner to help keep all your inputs interference-free and extend the life of all your recording gear. These two units will fit nicely, along with your Digi 003, into the included Gator Laptop-Over-4U Rack Case. If you're looking to build a top-notch mobile rig, this case is a must-have--it's got a top compartment for your laptop and internal cable routing so you can keep everything hooked up even when in transit. Classy. Other studio must-haves we've made part of this awesome bundle include a 24-channel snake, a 12-mic Gator microphone carrying case, and a sweet pair of Audio Technica ATHM40FS Precision Monitor Headphones. Of course we also give you all necessary cables. All told, the Session Standard Bundle nets you $1400 worth of gear for only $750, exclusively when bundled with the Digidesign Digi 003 Rack+ and exclusively through zZounds.

zZounds and DigiDesign know what makes a successful project studio--zZounds because we're all musicians ourselves, and DigiDesign because they've been working with recording professionals and enthusiasts for decades. The Digi 003 Rack+ and Session Standard Bundle represent the dedication we both share to providing home recordists with the best equipment, software, and recording experience possible; there's no better way to join the home studio revolution!
