WHAT KIND OF MUSICIAN ARE YOU?
Waveform is a rapidly evolving application specifically designed for the needs of modern music producers. Specializing in creative and inspirational workflows and avoiding features not explicitly needed to allow the app to remain surprisingly fun and intuitive. While other apps try to appeal to broad user groups, for example film score, live sound, performance – we are laser focused on music production.
THE FASTEST GROWING DAW IN THE WORLD
Waveform Pro (v11) Highlights:
• Cutting edge contemporary DAW designed for musicians.
• Improved UI/UX with user customizable actions and layouts.
• Multi screen and touch screen management.
• Inspirational MIDI composition tools.
• Edit complex arrangements rapidly with the new Edit Overview and Arranger Track.
New Features in Version 11
There is a new optional panel at the top of every Edit which enables you to show an overview of the Edit and all of its contents.
You can reposition the view window or hold shift and drag to draw a new view window for quick navigation.
The arranger track can be used to annotate regions of your track. Arrange clips can be created by using the new clip generator or holding shift to draw them in. Once present, you can drag arranger clips to move or copy sections of the Edit or drag them on to other arranger clips to replace or swap Edit contents.
Most panels in the Edit window can now be individually undocked to put them on different monitors. This includes the arrange, mixer and MIDI editors. Additionally, in the “Appearance” settings page you can now dedicate a monitor to plugin windows. All plugin windows will appear on this monitor to avoid cluttering the main workspace.
Edit view setups can now be saved and restored. For example, you can float your mixer panel and use the small transport bar and save this as a view preset. If you want to save a view preset with all side panels closed and just the arrange panel showing you can do that too. Currently you have to save and load view presets with the “Navigation” shortcuts or set up quick actions for them.
Quick Action Bar
The quick action bar is a new panel appearing above the properties or transport bar that can be used to assign shortcut actions to.
You can add buttons, assign them actions, including custom macros, set names and colours and then trigger then easily with the button. You can create multiple quick action templates and switch between them with the button on the left.
Quick Action Window
The quick action window has been designed with touch screens in mind and gives you access to the mixer and a number of quick action bars. Configure this window to your liking and make it part of a view preset.
Audio Chord Track
Auto-pitch audio clips now optionally pitch shift their sections to follow the chord track.
A single audio or MIDI input can now be assigned and armed on multiple tracks at once.
To avoid problematic plugins from bringing down Waveform, there is now an option to load plugins in their own process.
