Soundation Studio, online sequencer adds direct recording
Soundation Studio has announced the direct recording, allowing artists to record tracks into the web-based music application.
Many music lovers want to record and write their own tracks, but just don’t know where or how to get started. Now, music making hopefuls with no previous music or studio experience can record and mix their tracks online at Soundation.com.
Popular Web-based sequencing program, Soundation Studio, unveiled this week that users are now able to record directly from their computers into the online program, making it even easier for newbies to lay down their own tracks.
Developed by leading loops and samples distributor PowerFX, Soundation Studio features a robust interface and comes with 11 real-time effects, more than 400 royalty free loops, four virtual instruments, three synthesizers, and a drum machine. Users can also upload their own sounds, purchase samples from PowerFX right from inside the sequencer. Artists can then save, store and publish their creations to their social networks like Facebook.
The new recording feature allows anyone to simply plug a mic into their computer and begin recording immediately, with no additional equipment needed. This makes Soundation Studio an even more complete online studio/sequencing solution, and a great option for both music endeavors and other vocal projects, and a great fit for both amateur and more seasoned artists.
“As we were testing out recording in Soundation, we had so much fun, we delayed the release,” said Bil Bryant, CEO of PowerFX . “We were struck by how many uses there are for computer-to-net recording. Besides making a complete music track, you could record an inspired idea, vocal ringtone, audio blog, podcast with a killer soundtrack, greeting or comic message.”
The Soundation Studio sequencer is free for users to create from provided sounds, and download their tracks to their computers, or share them online. The new recording feature is also available, but to be able to save, store, download or share songs with recorded tracks or uploaded samples, users will have to purchase an account (starting at $19 USD).
