Samplitude Music Studio 2020
Record. Compose. Mix. Master.
Samplitude Music Studio offers all the tools necessary for musicians and bands to record, compose, edit, mix and master their songs. As a virtual practice space, the software is your new center for creative jam sessions and complete music productions.
Easy and professional recording
Apply recording templates and use an integrated tuner for string instruments, and record vocals or instruments simultaneously on several tracks.
Record instruments, vocals or rap in 24-bit/96 kHz studio quality on up to 16 mono tracks or 8 stereo tracks at the same time. Simultaneously edit and mix band practices, demo tapes or complete albums in studio quality using Multitrack recording.
Vocal recording correction
With Vocal Tune 2, correcting your vocal recordings is simple. The pitch curves and wave forms help you keep track of everything and can be used to edit recordings in detail with the pencil tool.
Recording templates get your projects ready for recording guitar, piano, vocals or an entire band without the need to adjust any further settings. A template loads a track for the recording with EQ, compressor and other effects and another track for drum loops etc.
Tuning string instruments
With the integrated tuner, you can make sure your guitar, bass or ukulele are perfectly tuned before you start recording. Simply play a string into your mic, and Samplitude will show you if the pitch is correct or, if it's not, how out of tune it is.
The gentle cycle for your hard drive and RAM without loss of sound quality: Recordings made with VST plug-ins or effects can be easily converted to 32-bit floating format using the track freeze.
