For those who don't just want to write songs,
but tell stories.
Sequoia has been one of the leading software solutions for professional audio productions for decades. But continued success in the music business also requires that you regularly reinvent yourself without losing your original character. And that's exactly what we've done with Sequoia 14.

SpectraLayers Pro 4 full version
This award-winning audio tool is one of the most revolutionary spectral editing platforms on the market. The innovative layers concept enables restoration and comprehensive frequency spectrum editing for audio files in 2D and 3D.
The technology and workflows behind the concept are inspired by video and image editing. Ideal for application in tasks such as audio restoration, post-production, sound design and mixing. SpectraLayers Pro is the ideal extension for the spectral cleaning function built into Sequoia and offers a wealth of tools for complex tasks.
Simplified embedding for external editors
Edit audio files with external editors directly from within the program. An audio object in Sequoia can be seamlessly transferred to SpectraLayers Pro for editing and then can be imported back into Sequoia.
The ARA interface enables close collaboration with external plug-ins designed for synchronization, so the DAW and plug-ins can work seamlessly together and exchange information on a continual basis. Data exchange via ARA is particularly useful when working with Melodyne from Celemony in Sequoia 14.
Melodyne essential from Celemony
Technical Grammys, various specialist awards and a truly innovative editing concept for recordings: Professional plug-in Melodyne essential is included Sequoia 14. It contains a main tool for pitch and timing correction and is integrated directly via ARA.
Audio to MIDI conversion
Easily change audio recordings in Sequoia 14 into MIDI data with this efficient tool for music production. It enables you to add missing instruments to a musical arrangement without needing to find studio musicians right away.
Tempo automation for audio recordings
You can let audio recording speed be calculated automatically in Sequoia 14. For projects with tempo switch, Sequoia 14 calculates speed of an audio take in the background and adjusts this to the new basic tempo.
This saves hours of work, especially when working with live recordings.
The new mixer skins offer a choice of algorithms. Depending on the screen size and recording setting selected, the design of aspects such as channel strips will appear narrower and darker. With these settings, you're prepared for any project outside of your studio.
zplane élastique V3 timestretch algorithm
The new time stretching and pitch shifting algorithms in Sequoia 14 are powered by zplane - one of the leading developers for state-of-the-art audio processing and music analysis.
Includes: élastique Pro V3, élastique Efficient V3
Efficient docking options for multi-project management
New docking options let you set up a working environment customized to your needs and offer optimal screen use.
There's also a new project management workflow for a clearer overview with new tabs and the option to switch between projects when several are open.
Batch processing for watch folders
Significantly reduce production time - batch processing with Batch XML files can now be done in watch folders and even includes L&R files. In addition, shorter items are automatically processed first. The "KeepFileExtension" job entry enables the file extensions to be retained permanently (e.g. for type conversion). And advanced error codes are now available for watchfolder.ini.
Support for new video formats and codecs
Sequoia 14 is one of the leading solutions for post-production editing. The latest version also supports current video formats and codecs.
Keep everything perfectly organized with the Clipstore - this advanced clipboard lets you access all folders. Use the Clipstore to categorize specific audio files that you need to use regularly in your projects. This makes working with jingles or sound effects - for instance - much more efficient.
Safe record stop
Decide from the start how Sequoia should behave at the end of a recording. This ensures that unwanted interruptions don't occur during recording or live broadcast.
Multichannel export without surround master
Create an interleaved WAV file specific to your needs. You can assign individual tracks to channels in the resulting file by selecting the audio line-out. This enables you to transfer variations or language soundtracks in a single file.
Alternative interface design
Birdline Platinum Pack V.6.0 offers a huge range of alternative designs for the interface in Sequoia. It contains designs for Mixer, Track Editor, VIP, color profile, MIDI editor and more.
