Music Computing tels us that they have released products designed for the beginner to the elite pro for music production and performance. Here is their press release:
Expanding on its goal to great super-instruments by incorporating the best products available into its core platform, Music Computing releases the following:
The StudioBLADE 5 is the world's most powerful keyboard production station. Capable of running up to twelve (12) Xeon processor cores and 192GB of RAM, the StudioBLADE 5 can handle anything you throw at it and help you produce music without limits.The new Gen5 series comes in a 61 or 88 key version as well as a built in 22" multi-touch touchscreen with external MIDI controllers or the new Combo model with a 10" multi-touch touchscreen and built in MIDI controller.
Starting with the most powerful and advanced computer core we've ever used in a ControlBLADE, the new Gen5 models can accommodate the latest i5 and i7 processors as well as up to 32GB of RAM and 4TB of hard disk storage. Multiple PCI slots are available for future expansion and the ControlBLADE 5 comes equipped with over 8,000 sounds and effects. Currently the ControlBLADE 5 is available with the Akai MPK261 or the M-Audio Axiom 2nd Gen controllers. Additional options will be made available as we receive additional customer and manufacturer's requests.
Audio is greatly enhanced in the ControlBLADE 5 due to the available full 1U rack space. A variety of audio interfaces are available as an option. The ControlBLADE can be configured with a 10" or 22" multi-touch touchscreen. It can also be ordered without a touchscreen, which can then be used with an existing LED or TV you may already have. Starting at just $2499, the new ControlBLADE 5 represents a powerhouse in music production on an economical budget.
TANTO is a result of numerous requests by people for us to produce an add-on product that will instantly turn any midi equipped keyboard or keyboard controller into a fully-blown keyboard production station containing a powerful computer core, professional audio interface and touchscreen controls.
A robust tubular frame is provided that is attached to the bottom of the keyboard using the existing screw holes. Once in place, simply slide the TANTO 'backpack' into place, plug the single USB cable into your keyboard and instantly you have a setup ready to run your favorite DAW or live VST host.
TANTO is available for Windows or MacOS X, with a variety of computer configurations and different audio interfaces. Other options include either a 10" or 22" multi-touch touchscreen with a quick release mount. Starting at $1,299, TANTO give new life to your existing keyboards.
With the new ControlTOUCH 2, Music Computing furthers the concept of integrating industry leading controllers into its product platform to create instruments that are more powerful and better integrated with software applications.
Many people already have their own laptops and have been using them successfully in music production. However, some would prefer to have all the components and parts together in a coherent instrument. ControlTOUCH 2 takes this concept and makes it a reality.
Currently the ControlTOUCH 2 is available with the Akai MPK261 or the M-Audio Axiom 2nd Gen controllers. Additional options will be made available as we receive additional customer and manufacturer's requests. Audio is greatly enhanced in the ControlTOUCH 2 due to the available full 1U rack space. A variety of audio interfaces are available as an option.
The ControlTOUCH can be configured with up to a 4TB internal hard drive and comes with over 8,000 sounds and effects suitable for immediate use. Convenient features such as the built in A/C power outlet located on the back of the unit provides a great way to power you laptop and other accessories, while reducing the tangle of wires and cables.
Starting at just $899, the new ControlTOUCH 2 packs a big bang for the buck. (Base configuration: M-Audio Axiom 2nd Gen controller / Tascam 6ins / 4outs audio with 4 mic pres)
