Guitar-friendly recording software hits the streets 27/02/07
IK Multimedia has announced that RiffWorks Standard by Sonoma Wire Works, which IK distributes worldwide, is now shipping. RiffWorks Standard is guitar-friendly recording software that allows users to create entire songs with an easy to use Riff-based workflow that encourages experimentation with song structure. IK say that with RiffWorks, users can record efficiently, stay creative, produce high-quality songs, jam online, and podcast your tunes without ever putting their guitar down.
Hereâ€™s what they have to say about it in their own words:
â€˜RiffWorks allows you to capture ideas at the moment of inspiration by setting a tempo and starting to record by simply strumming your guitar! Tracks are created automatically as you play so you can easily record multiple takes or layer parts without stopping the creative flow. Add beats easily to your guitar and bass parts with InstantDrummer. Pick a groove, count off a tempo, and InstantDrummer inspires you to play along with its continuously varying drum tracks using perfectly matched, full kit studio drum recordings. RiffWorks includes 7 studio quality effects (auto-wah, multiband compression, modulation, delay, reverb, and British style EQ ) plus IK's AmpliTube 2 Live.
RiffWorks users can also take advantage of RiffCaster, a free service that allows you to share songs, get feedback from other RiffWorks users and instantly podcast your tunes. Want to jam online? Now you can with RiffLink (60-day trail version included), which offers users built-in online collaboration. Share a song session over the Internet with up to four other musicians in what feels like real-time with no worries about latency.â€™
