Check out this set of super essential studio items you could win this month:
1. Roland GR-55 Guitar Synthesizer with GK-3 Pickup, $899 Value
With decades of experience developing the industry’s hottest guitar synths, Roland’s GR-55 guitar synth and effects processor gives you more incredible tones and features than ever before, making laggy and inaccurate tracking a thing of the past. When Roland designed the GR-55, they totally redeveloped their already leading pitch-detection technology to bring you their fastest guitar synth ever. Pitch, velocity, sustain – the GR-55 doesn’t miss a thing! Using the included GK-3 hex pickup, your guitar can conjure up screaming leads, rich pads, piano accents, and much more.
2. Bose S1 Pro Multi-position PA System with Battery, $649 Value
Fully loaded and weighing in at just 15 pounds, the Bose S1 Pro is the ultimate all-in-one PA for soloists, event speakers, and smaller acts. Whether you tilt it, seat it, or mount it, the Bose S1 Pro delivers rich, even coverage to an entire room, with Auto EQ to eliminate hotspots out on the floor. Two channels with independent EQ, reverb, and ToneMatch technology promise flattering reproduction of voices and instruments, while a dedicated third channel with 1/8″ aux input and one-touch Bluetooth pairing and streaming handles music playback. The Bose S1 Pro has a convenient carry handle that facilitates speedy load-ins and setups, while a factory-installed Li-ion battery gives you unmatched PA portability.
3. Eventide H9 Max Multi-Effects Pedal, $699 Value
With the H9 Max, you can employ all of Eventide’s stompbox effects using a single pedal. You get all 52 algorithms and associated presets from Space, TimeFactor, PitchFactor, and ModFactor, as well as PitchFuzz, SpaceTime, Crushstation, Sculpt, UltraTap Delay, Resonator, and Compressor EQ. The H9 Max ships with 99 factory presets, and you can download over 500 more via the free H9 Control app on your Bluetooth-equipped device. Featuring a simple, one-knob user interface, the H9 Max adds legendary Eventide sounds to your tonal tool kit.
4. Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Broadcast Microphone, $449 Value
The Electro-Voice RE20 is the broadcast studio voice-over mic used by pros for years. The RE20 is smooth across a wide spectrum of frequencies, and because it’s a Continuously Variable-D mic, it’s virtually free of bass-boosting “proximity effect” when used close. An easy “bass tilt down” switch corrects spectrum balance for use in long-reach situations or other bass attenuation applications, making it great for acoustic and electric bass, as well as a kick drum. Engineers at Sweetwater agree: the Electro-Voice RE20 is a studio and broadcast standard!
5. Sennheiser XSW-D Instrument Base Set, $319 Value
The Sennheiser XSW-D Instrument Base Set makes building a wireless instrument system easy. Benefit from one-touch ease of use and 2.4GHz digital operation for worldwide, license-free compatibility.

You also get a convenient mute function on both the transmitter and receiver. The XSW-D Instrument Base Set is supremely elegant — it makes wireless performances effortless while providing the level of quality and reliability that Sennheiser is known for.
6. Audio-Technica Bluetooth Studio Headphones, $199 Value
Looking for amazing value in professional monitor headphones? Sweetwater has a great suggestion: ATH-M50xBT2 closed-back headphones.

The closed-back design gives you superior isolation with minimal bleed, while the circumaural earpads give you cushy comfort during long sessions.
Boasting excellent sound quality and features built for content creation, the Shure MV7 USB microphone has become the mic of choice among Sweetwater’s podcast hosts and content creators. Inspired by the SM7B Broadcast Microphone, the MV7 has a highly directional cardioid pickup pattern that rejects unwanted background noise. Its optimized frequency response flatters voices of all kinds and has a pleasing proximity effect. This USB mic offers both USB and XLR outputs so you can record however you want to. A built-in headphone output provides direct monitoring while a touch control strip handles gain and monitoring levels.

With this next-level looper, you can harness two independent stereos or split mono loops to toggle verse/chorus accompaniment in a live setting. Each loop includes its own level control, so you can build dynamic mixes based on the way you play. You can also pull from a bank of 50 of your own pre-recorded loops (up to 3 hours in total length) to access instant inspiration anywhere you write or play out.
