Record vocals and instruments over the included loops provided, extract audio from CDs, and import MP3 files for remixing and creating dynamic DJ sets. Audio effects, MIDI functionality, and new workflow and performance features open the door to the world of professional music production.
Audio effects include élastique timestretching, EQ, reverb, delay, chorus, flanging, phase shift, and distortion. Ninety instruments for song creation are included, along with VST effects plug-ins and VST instrument support, allowing MIDI tracks to be played back using the virtual instruments, filters, and effects. Powerful MIDI editing and sequencing tools are also available while input monitoring allows for hearing the recording signal with real-time track effects, like the included Studio Devil British Valve Custom guitar amplifier.
