According to the company, “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 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.”

Waveform includes a suite of built in FX including EQ, dynamics, reverb and mastering grade channel strip. MIDI FX such as the real time chord player and virtual instruments including Collective and the ground breaking Multi Sampler, plus the Grammy award winning Melodyne Essentials pitch manipulation.

Unlike other affordable DAW’s, Waveform does not impose any restrictions whatsoever – we believe in unlimited track count, full feature set and freedom to add any plugins. Waveform also runs on all the major desktop operating systems – macOS, Windows and Linux. Your imagination is the only limit.

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 new 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. For example, the sampler can record directly from other apps – such as your web browser – which means sound sources are literally unlimited. Fans of ReCycle will love the one button audio clip import/slice and convert to MIDI tool. Adding content into the sampler, manipulating in creative ways and storing/recalling your sounds has never been more inspirational – create your sound.
