The MediaBay sound management system streamlines the way you access your sound libraries. The stage-optimised workflow with dedicated play view places all the controls in an ergonomic layout, allowing you to easily build keyboard splits or layered as well as switch between entire multi-setups with a single command. This improved workflow and unique interface design makes creating and finding sounds easier than ever before.

These high-end effects can be applied to instruments to add a new dynamic and tone to your sound, ideal for studio use.
