New version of the sequencer and software synth host application for Windows 08/01/08
Audio Simulation have announced the new DreamStation II sequencer and software synth host application for the Windows platform. Hereâ€™s how they describe it in their own wordsâ€¦ â€™The improvements and enhancements over on the old version are immense. The sequencer interface has been completely reworked, the internal sound engine detached to allow industry standard plugins to be hosted, and at last but not least the mixer has been greatly improved to be able to handle and manipulate all audio streams from plugins and audio tracks.
Based on our groundbreaking conception, the patterns in a song can be used with different types: tracker, piano roll and percussion. These pattern types are (in most cases) compatible with each other, which means that you can declare then write a pattern in tracker mode and then switch over to piano-roll or vice versa. The contents of the pattern will remain the same, you just choose the most convenient way of composing for yourself.
DreamStation II is compatible with most of the DirectX, DirectX Instrument, VST and VST Instrument plugins. These plugins can be used as sound generators for the patterns and effects for the mixer (in insert or send mode).
You have full control over on all available parameters. Automation tracks in the sequencer allow you to move any pot and knob of any plugin or mixer channel at any time during the song. Both audio and automation tracks have got individual envelopes with virtually unlimited breakpoints.
Time stretcher, free DreamStation DXi2 and free effect plugins also come with the "starter" package. â€˜Pricing and Availability:
