M-Audio Announces GuitarBox & GuitarBox Pro
M-Audio is proud to announce shipment of the new GuitarBox and GuitarBox Pro complete music production systems for guitarists. Both systems combine the M-Audio Black Box and Pro Tools M-Powered software. Both also feature a suite of 7 Bomb Factory plug-ins, 33 DigiRack plug-ins, Digidesign Xpand! virtual instrument, Pro Tools Method One instructional DVD and Ableton Live Lite Digidesign Edition.
The GuitarBox ships with the G-Rack premium plug-in effects bundle including SansAmp PSA-1 amp- and cabinet-modeling plug-in, Tel-Ray Variable Delay, Moogerfooger bundle, Voce Chorus/Vibrato and Spin and TL Space Native Edition convolution reverb. The GuitarBox Pro ships with the more extensive G-Rack Producer premium plug-in effects bundle including all of the G-Rack plug-ins, plus the Fairchild 660 and 670 boutique tube-modeled compressors/limiters, Pultec Bundle vintage tube-modeled EQs, Maxim mastering limiter/sound-level maximizer, and DINR LE noise reduction plug-in to remove noise or buzz from pickups.
“The Black Box and Pro Tools M-Powered complement each other as incredible power tools for guitar processing and music production, respectively,” says Adam Castillo, marketing director at M-Audio. “Combined, they form a complete professional solution for guitarists embracing cutting-edge, computer-based recording. Add the G-Rack and G-Rack Producer premium effects bundles to the already stunning array of 45 Bomb Factory and DigiRack plug-ins and the value in these packages is simply unmatched. The GuitarBox and GuitarBox Pro have it allâ€”signature tone, groundbreaking effects, huge beats, seamless integration and the industry standard in music production software.”
Co-designed by Roger Linn, the Black Box is now reloaded with 40 amp modelsâ€”including emulations of many of the greatest guitar amps of all time. It also incorporates over 120 unique and inspiring effects, many of which are rhythmic and beat-sync to Pro Tools M-Powered. Users can dial in the perfect patch for recording, then bring that sound to their gigs because it’s where they want itâ€”in the Black Box, not at home in their computer. A built-in microphone preamp is also included for recording and processing vocals and acoustic instruments.
