tracktion Waveform overview

  • 1Description

tracktion Waveform 9 Basic is a digital audio workstation, which offers music producers and artists a variety of efficient, empowering tools for sampling, composing, recording, editing, mixing, and mastering their songs. It features unlimited audio and MIDI tracks, powerful corrective and creative plug-ins, and a modular mixing environment with limitless DSP chains, all accessible from a consolidated single screen user interface.

Record audio and MIDI, drag-and-drop loops and samples, and automate parameters and plug-ins. Splice, comp, and fade audio. Work quickly with customizable keyboard shortcuts and programmable macros. Flexible MIDI composition tools are provided. With real-time chord players, arpeggiators, and MIDI pattern generators, a single MIDI note can trigger complex sequences. Waveform 9's MIDI learn capability makes using a MIDI controller simple and effective. Detailed MIDI editing and quantization is offered via clip editing and piano roll views.

Waveform 9 includes Melodyne Essential for pitch correction and creative pitch-shifting. Also featured is the Collective sampler/synthesizer with over 600 presets and the Multi-Sampler instrument, which lets you record directly from other apps (such as your web browser), and slice audio clips and convert them to MIDI. An array of effects plug-ins is provided for mixing. Third-party plug-ins can be used for VST, Linux VST, and Audio Units plug-in formats.

An expanded, modular mixer allows multiscreen setups and recallable DSP chains. Process the entire mix via drag-and-drop plug-in functionality in the Master section. The included Master Mix plug-in is specifically designed for stereo-bus EQ and dynamics processing.

Waveform 9 comes with the Alex Sanfilippo Imagina Loops drum loops pack and is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Raspberry Pi.
