Thank you for visiting the newly updated Music Studio Direct store.  We've been in business for over ten years, helping our fellow musicians find the tools you need to best serve your music projects.  Please note that this new version of our online store is still in the process of being completed, so you may find that some links are not working as of yet.  Please feel free to call us toll-free at 877-687-4270 with any questions or comments, or contact us via email.  

More significant than the low prices you will find at MUSIC STUDIO DIRECT, is our focus on helping you choose the right music software and hardware! We are musicians who enjoy creating music ourselves, and are happy to help you! Unlike most web stores, you can always call us toll-free at 877.687.4270 so we can answer your questions directly, or place your order over the phone. If you are calling from outside the United States, our Int'l phone number is 1-413-567-1900.

For Music Professionals, we specialize in download and boxed versions of audio-effects and virtual instruments from brands including:  Waves, McDSP, ProjectSAM, Best Service, AVID, Big Fish Audio, Vienna Symphonic and many others.

MUSIC STUDIO DIRECT began as a web based music technology resource site originally known as the Music Technology Learning Center! Visitors could find many articles on music software and hardware here, as well as articles on schools that include music technology in their curriculum. After many requests for the products we wrote about, and with my experience running customer service for Cakewalk, we began to make them available on the site. Keep in mind that we still have a helpful articles section available on the site, with many more helpful articles on their way!

Thank you for visiting MUSIC STUDIO DIRECT. Have a great time working on your music! Best regards, Arnie Schachere MUSIC STUDIO DIRECT President

1. The Right Products at the Right Price

Rather than simply carrying every new product that comes out, we carefully select only the products that we feel posess the necessary combination of both quality and value. From cutting edge recording software to software for learning piano, you can be sure that every product we carry is capable of helping you with your music. Did we miss the product you're looking for? Don't worry, we also do special orders for products not listed on our site!

2. Custom Configurations

Not every musician is building the same project studio. Whether you're working with a budget, limited on space, or just have a specific need, we'll not only help you find the best products to meet your goals and compliment your existing gear, but we'll even explain how to hook it up!

3. Technical Support

Ever try to call a music software company's technical support line? While we can't guarantee to know all the answers, in most cases we will be able to provide the necessary technical support for the products we carry, including installation, integration, compatibility, and general usage. And, in case we don't have the answers you need, we'll be able to point you in the right direction to find the information you're looking for in the quickest way possible.

4. Free Advice and Answers

With music technology evolving so quickly, it's difficult to stay on top of things, and even trickier when you're just starting out. That's why in addition to our music technology tutorials, profiles, and overviews, we'll be happy to answer your questions, and help unravel the mysteries of the music technology world.

5. Knowledgeable Staff

Our staff comes from various backgrounds from within the music education and music technology industries. This gives us the kind of insight that your average salesman just doesn't have. That's why we're able to not only sell products, but offer you the information you need for achieving your musical goals, or just having a great time!
