M-Audio offers new product

M-Audio today unveiled two new portable digital pianos, as well as a rack-mountable 8 x 8 audio MIDI interface. The Fast Track Ultra 8R features an MX Core DSP mixer and eight Octane-enabled preamps, and delivers connectivity through a single USB 2.0 connector. M-Audio advertises that the Ultra 8R low-noise, high-gain preamplification, and near-zero latency. M-Audio is selling the Fast Track Ultra 8R for $650, and will be available during the second quarter.

The ProKeys Sono 61 ($450) and ProKeys Sono 88 ($550) feature semi-weighted keys, onboard sounds, and a built-in audio interface. Both models are sampled from a Steinway grand piano, with the Sono 61 featuring bright piano, electric piano, organ, and clav. The Sono 88 features, in addition to the five samples, a choir and string sample.

The keyboards also feature 128 built-in sounds in the on-board GM sound set, as well as drums and percussion.
