The Avid KeyStudio comprises a keyboard controller, a USB interface and Pro Tools SE software that together form the center of a project studio recording system. The 49-note, velocity-sensitive M-Audio KeyStudio keyboard and Pro Tools SE software combination, once connected to the user's computer, provides all the necessary tools to begin building composition using the included 3GB loop library.

Additionally, one can choose from over 100 different instrument sounds, and then add effects that include reverb, delay, EQ, compression, chorus, flanger, and many others, polish the tracks, and then share them with anyone. The Pro Tools software contains a wide array of music creation templates for creating hip-hop, electronic, pop, funk, jazz, and rock and blues tracks.

The included M-Audio Micro USB interface is also compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software in the event that the user wants to upgrade the software component of the system.
