Software Description

MultitrackStudio is an multitrack mixer/recorder that can host VST plugins.

It has the functionality of a multitrack recorder, a mixer, a MIDI sequencer, and combines it with a number of built-in effects. It is designed to be a quick solution to turn your computer into a digital multitrack music recording studio.

Key Features:

  • Record new tracks while playing along with existing ones:
    - Audio (mono or stereo) and/or MIDI tracks.
    - Cycle recording: record multiple takes automatically.
    - Use the Varispeed control if your instrument's pitch differs from your song's (Pro Plus edition only) (more).
    - Record alternate takes with just one key press.

  • Mix the tracks:
    - Unlimited number of groups and effect send/returns supported.
    - Route Group or Effect Return sections to soundcard outputs (Pro Plus edition only).
    - Mixer / Effects automation (Pro Plus edition only).
    - Use Song Versions to store/recall mixes.

  • Enhance your mix with real-time effects:
    - Choose out of 19 high quality audio effects (more).
    - Use VST and DX plugins.
    - Add/move/remove effects on-the-fly.
    - Powerful effect sidechaining options (Pro Plus edition only).

  • Use MIDI to play instruments you can't play or don't own:
    - Use the disk-streaming Sampler (reads .GIG, .SF2 and .SFZ patches).
    - Use VSTi and DXi plugins.
    - Use external synths and/or your soundcard's synth.
    - Use the Wheel Organ or Electric Piano (included with Pro Plus edition).

  • Correct your mistakes:
    - Punch in/out recording.
    - Non-destructive audio editing.
    - MIDI pianoroll, notation, drum and controller editors.
    - Unlimited levels of undo.

  • Easy to use, no frustrations:
    - Well though out design.
    - Wizard to perform basic tasks.
    - Context sensitive help system: press the F1 key to get help on the item the mouse points to.
    - Fast and reliable.

  • HP-TPD dithering with or without noiseshaping.
  • 44.1/48 kHz samplerate (Pro Plus edition supports 88.2/96/176.4/192 kHz as well).
