Waveform is a rapidly evolving application designed for modern music producers. Specializing in creative and inspirational workflows and avoiding features not explicitly needed allow the app to remain fun and intuitive. While other apps try to appeal to broad user groups, for example film score, live sound, performance, Traktion is focused on music production. Waveform also runs on all the major desktop operating systems—macOS, Windows and Linux.
INSTRUMENTS / FX
Waveform includes a massive suite of over 80 built in FX plugins. Also included are a suite of extremely powerful virtual instruments, Collective provides a vast array of different instrument types for every musical genre, the revolutionary Multi Sampler is a sound designers playground and Subtractive brings classic analog sounds to your compositions.
Waveform includes the excellent Imagina Loops ‘Alex Sanfilippo’ collection of world class multi track drum loops. These compliment the creative MIDI production tools such as the pattern generator and premium instruments, allowing you to focus on creativity rather than programming.
Waveform 10 features a host of new user interface and workflow improvements designed to help navigate its deep capabilities. The addition of an all new ‘Actions Panel’ accessible in the browser allows the user to fully customize what features are displayed – favoriting commonly used actions and hiding those rarely needed. Users can also create their own actions using macro scripts and assign custom key commands further increasing the apps ability to respond to its users particular workflow. Actions are available via the right click menu and can be accessed by the cursor position greatly speeding up your ability to access core functions.
The addition of edit groups opens up a number of really useful tools to significantly enhance your audio editing capabilities. The most significant of these is the ultra cool ‘Groove Doctor’ editing process most typically used for multi track drum recordings. Quickly perform phase accurate quantization across multiple tracks of recorded audio whilst capturing snapshots for recall at a later date if edits need revisiting. Besides repairing errors in a performance, the tool can also be used to quickly extract complex groove templates that can be used to lock your edit to a recorded groove.
PERFORMANCE & STABILITY
The biggest cause of instability in any DAW is plugins. The Tracktion development team is taking the lead in host stability management by developing an open source plugin validation tool to help both users and developers alike. This development tool benefits all hosts as it tests for common problems that would affect all DAW apps and provides a much more efficient resolution path for plugin developers.
4OSC is a powerful yet simple to navigate subtractive synthesiser. It’s clean UI and small CPU footprint make it a great alternative to Subtractive for less complex sound design tasks. As the name suggests 4OSC offers 4 oscillators, flexible modulation, MPE compatibility and a range of onboard filters and FX.
Waveform is the only DAW to include genuine Auto-Tune® technology from Antares Technologies. Waveform includes the new Auto-Tune Access plug-in to provide the legendary real-time pitch correction and vocal effects that have launched countless hits. Auto-Tune Access delivers the core Auto-Tune features with a simple and intuitive interface. Its light CPU footprint and professional quality processing also make it a convenient option for more advanced users working with larger projects.
Melodyne lets you work with audio in an entirely new way. If a good take is spoiled by small errors, you don’t have to throw it away, because with Melodyne you can simply repair it. Regardless whether they’re intonation or timing errors, notes that are too loud or too quiet, with too much vibrato or too little. You can optimize the tiniest details of your recordings, bringing them as close to perfection as you desire. And since Melodyne works in a highly musical way, neither the vitality nor the naturalness of the performance is sacrificed in the process. Furthermore, the unbelievable flexibility of audio in Melodyne can be the launching pad for your boldest ideas.
Subtractive synthesis started it all, creating the classic analog sounds musicians need for their tracks. Tracktion’s Subtractive synthesizer plugin puts a modern spin on things with 4 oscillators, each with ring modulator, 2 filters, a drive stage in-between and lots of modulation possibilities. This is followed by a 4-band EQ and 4 effect busses with a wide variety of high quality effects to choose from. Besides its classic sawtooth, pulse and triangle oscillators, it adds a Spinal Saw oscillator type delivering up to 11 sawtooth waveforms at once. Multiply that with four oscillators and you get 44 detuned sawtooth waveforms per voice. Its filters provide State-Variable, Transistor Ladder and Sallen-Key filter types to faithfully recreate classic analog synth sounds.
62 new plugins are built into Waveform 10. The Artisan Collection is based on the wildly popular Airwindows DSP providing inspirational audio sculpting tools. Each plugin is laser focused on a particular task which can be used individually to add specific edge to your sound, or in combination to build a rich multi effect. Due to their narrow focus, the user interfaces are extremely simple and there are minimal presets, the user can easily adapt, experiment and combine.
The concept of sampling has been around for decades and still remains relevant in all forms of music production. The process of finding sounds, manipulating them and storing them for use in your own compositions can be a critical element for defining ‘your sound’. The Multi-Sampler instrument goes deep, offering truly contemporary sampling capabilities – but that’s not where the innovation ends. We have gone beyond the standard sampler features and optimized user workflow and integration within the DAW so creating your own sounds is faster and more intuitive.
The powerful modular ‘rack’ environment in Waveform has become highly revered for its limitless capabilities. Creating complex assemblies of DSP is easy and intuitive, allowing you to focus on the task at hand – whether that be processing a vocal or diving deep into multi instrument sound design. Racks 2.0 takes it to the next level with the addition of the ‘stacked’ view and new auto connection capabilities. Add to this the ability to create custom face plates and macros, and the Rack 2.0 environment just became a whole lot more visual and creative.
The MIDI composition tools available in Waveform are designed to empower and inspire the creative process. Tools which demystify complex musical structures and allow non trained enthusiasts to explore composition. Synchronized pattern generators allow you to dive into chord progressions with matching bass lines, melodies and arpeggios. Real time chord players turn one finger keyboard players into musical maestros. Don’t let your instrumental abilities restrict your creative flow.
