Cicada Pro Essential is the basic setup to get you started with acoustic synthesis. The AMP Pro and Actuator Pro turns your electronic audio signals into vibrations, which are transmitted over the Bridge and into the Soundboard and PRE Pro. If you're curious about how Cicada will work with your setup, then this system is for you.
