History: We have received loads of email regarding Super Studio Session, first published by Bogas Productions in 1986. When it was first introduced in 1986 as Studio Session, it was the first program for the Macintosh that substituted digitized instrument sounds for electronically synthesized sounds. It also managed to squeeze six simultaneous voices out of the Mac's sound generator, instead of the usual four voices. Studio Session won a number of awards, including the MacUser 1986 Editor's Choice Award (the Eddy) for Best New Music Program and the 1998 MacWorld Reader's Poll for Music Software of the Year. In a MacUser article entitled "Unsung Heroes," the author said, "I have looked at Studio Session in depth and I'm tremendously impressed by it, as are all the editors of MacUser . . . . But, we haven't mentioned Ed (Ed Bogas) in the articles . . . Well, once again, I want to thank Ed Bogas publically for all the work and brilliance that went into this fine product." M. Wesley, "Unsung Heroes," MacUser, April 1987. Studio Session received a 4.5 (out of 5) mouse rating from MacUser magazine ("Now that an excellent manual exists, we have added a half a mouse to the program's rating"). Since its inception, Studio Session has been updated many times and is now presented as Super Studio Session. Super Studio Session  has eight tracks, and uses digitized instrument sounds at 22 khz. You can download the Super Studio Session manual, program, and all the additional instruments and songs that were originally sold with Super Studio Session.
