Digidesign Session
The $199 Multitrack Recording System

Rumors have been flying around the industry for many months now: Digidesign was about to introduce a hard disk recording system for the Macintosh with 4 to 16 tracks of simultaneous 16-bit, 44.1 and 48 kHz playback, digital parametric EQ and complete automation of volume and pan. And its list price was going to be under $400. That's not all: The rumor was that with a Power Mac, you wouldn't need any additional hardware. Sounds fantastic, doesn't it? But knowing that this product was coming from Digidesign, most people took it seriously.

Well the cat's out of the bag now. Indeed Digi has unveiled their new Session Software to the delight of the entire music/recording community, but at the special (and almost unbelievable) limited time introductory price of just $199. See, that headline was not a misprint.

If you're a musician and you own a Mac, you simply have to have Session installed on your machine, it's as simple as that. A sophisticated digital recording, editing and mixing package at this price is — at least up until now — unheard of. What's more, Session adds superb, nondestructive editing tools typically found only in products costing many times its price.

Imagine you've just laid down two or three rhythm tracks. Now you're ready to get started. With Session you can cut and paste together your takes any way you like, as many times as you like without altering your original tracks. Add volume and pan automation, crossfade and EQ. And that's just the start! Session is built around the Digidesign Audio Engine (DAE) which is fast becoming the standard for all digital audio on the Mac

Your Sweetwater sales engineer can tell you a lot more about Session, as well as all the other fine Digidesign products, all the way up to their superb Pro Tools III Audio Production System (an exclusive Sweetwater video is available now on Pro Tools III — consult your sales engineer). But remember, the phenomenal $199 Session introductory price ($395 regular retail) is for a very limited time only. By the way, Session now comes absolutely free with every Audiomedia II card for the Mac. So what are you waiting for? Call now!
