Tracktion Corporation has announced Waveform Pro 12.5, a free update for all Waveform Pro 12 users. The update brings 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 can be purchased 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 are designed to “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.
Music editing is further improved with the new DJ Mix Tools, which now also include Stem Separation.
New functions include; Automatic temp sync, perfect for DJ edits or remixes and coloured waveforms to help identify sections of songs or specific elements within a clip. Plus, Stem Separation means users can split stereo mixes or extract specific elements like a vocal or drums.
Workflow improvements include; Global Tracks Fold to help keep tracks neat and tidy, Loop Selection Move and quick access to master channel plugins.
Task management has been also upgraded, with enchantments to the Rack; Multi-out plugins can now be automatically wrapped, a plugin can now be set as a default, new Meter controls have been added to Faceplates plus a Rack’s Faceplate can now have its own window which itself can be set as a default.
The Waveform Pro 12.5 free update adds more options, with more control, to give users more creative possibilities. See the Tracktion site for details.
