Update: Audio Design Desk v1.6 – Benefits for Musicians and Podcasters
Audio Design Desk v1.6 is out now. Instantly create professional-sounding content in one place— or in direct connection with any DAW.
Streamline Your Professional Workflow with Audio Design Desk
When budgets are tight and deadlines even tighter, don’t let technology frustrate you from being the best. Audio Design Desk was created to get the technology out of the way of your craft.
Audio Design Desk turns your computer keyboard into an instrument so you can perform sound design elements like hits, rises, footsteps, punches, and gunshots in real-time while watching your video. Once you’ve placed your sounds, tell Audio Design Desk what genre, mood, or feel you’d like, and it will offer smart alternates without ever losing sync.
What’s new in v1.6?
- DAWSync – Effortlessly sync Audio Design Desk to any DAW including Pro Tools, Nuendo, Studio One, and Logic to add sound design, sound effects, and music 10x faster.
- LoopDNA – Audio Design Desk knows your loops from Splice or LoopCloud—so replacing, time stretching, and mixing and matching is immediate. LoopDNA brings the full power of Audio Design Desk to every sample you import, offering users a real-time creative experience that keeps them in their flow.
- Audio recording – Now musicians and podcasters can record directly into Audio Design Desk without the need for an additional DAW. New features include advanced snap settings to duplicate, trim, and place music to the beat, the ability to automatically quantize sounds as you’re placing them, and a metronome you will actually like.
To update and get v1.6, go to the ADD dropdown in the main menu and select “Check For Updates.”
Note: The free version, Audio Design Desk Create, becomes unavailable for download on April 14th. Get it while you still can!
