Tracktion announces a free update for all Waveform Pro 12 users,
The update brings huge new features including enhanced video support, DJ edit tools, stem separation, and a host of workflow and UI improvements. Building on the existing Waveform Free Feature Expansions, the launch of 12.5 adds two brand new packs to the list – ‘Pro Video’ and ‘DJ Mix Tools’. These expansions are available to purchase individually in Waveform Free 12, allowing you to build your own DAW by adding the features best suited to your workflow and budget.
The new Pro Video functions make working with video effortless. Multiple video clips can now be dragged into a single project and arranged or edited as needed. Scalable thumbnails make syncing audio a breeze, plus audio fades and effects plugins can be applied directly to video tracks. Once a project is complete, Waveform 12.5 can export high-resolution video directly from the edit. Alternatively, users can render and replace audio on existing video files.
Thanks to DJ Mix Tools, audio editing is also significantly improved function, there is also an automatic tempo sync. Colored waveform displays make it easier to find specific song sections within a clip, making it easier to create remixes and DJ edits. Use stem separation to split stereo mixes into stems, or to select specific elements such as vocals or drums.
Waveform Pro 12.5 workflows have been improved in several areas. For example, the plug-ins in the master channel can be accessed more quickly. New features include Loop Section Move and Global Tracks Fold. The latter provides more order and a better overview of the tracks. The handling of plug-in racks has also been revised and simplified. Plug-ins can be set as default setting and assigned their own window, which is also included in the default setting. There are also new displays and improvements in the display of Multi-Out
With version 12.5 Waveform becomes even more powerful and at the same time more intuitive. Waveform Pro 12.5 is available via download, as are the new feature expansions. The Upgrade from older Waveform versions is free.
