ExperimentalScene has released version 2.0 of it's flagship product DarkWave Studio, with many bug fixes and a new mixer.
DarkWave Studio is a modular virtual studio for the creation of electronic music. It allows users to connect various machines included with DarkWave Studio in addition to machines that adhere to Steinberg's VST effect and VSTi instrument format in a virtual studio environment limited only by your imagination.
For high performance the program has a top of the range scheduling algorithm that allows instruments and effects to run in parralel on today's multi core computers, allowing more CPU intensive projects to work in real time. For top performance on the latest 64-bit machines a 64-bit version is included in addition to a 32-bit version of the program for backwards compatibility with 32-bit operating systems and VST plugins.
A pattern editor with a piano roll interface is included to allow the creation of patterns of music for each instrument with ease. A sequencer allows patterns to be arranged into a song, allowing reuse of patterns to rapidly create a song with repeated elements.
DarkWave Studio can also be used live with the MIDI Input machine which allows for playing of virtual instruments with a MIDI or USB music keyboard.
Multitrack recording is possible with DarkWave Studio's multitrack hard disk recorder which allows any number of recording machines to be placed in the studio and then controlled from the hard disk recorder interface. Recording can be synchronised with the start and end of a song by starting recording of all tracks simultaneously as playing the song by the click of a button in the sequencer.
DarkWave Studio comes with the following machines at no extra cost:
ES SpatialVerb: Room modelling reverb unit with advanced circulant feedback delay network to minimize ringing caused by most reverbs.
ES DGenR8: Virtual analog drum module made to sound and function just like the classic Roland TR-909.
ES AntiAlias: Up to 32 times oversampling digital filter to enhance the quality of the recording.
ES BassHead: Virtual analog subtractive synthesizer with 2 bandlimited oscillators, 3 low frequency oscillators, 2 multimode filters, seperate amplifier and filter envelope generators and many controls to adjust the sound.
ES Mixer: The latest addition to DarkWave Studio, ES Mixer is an 8 track plus 2 auxillary track production mixer. Each track has a 3 band equalizer, 60dB range volume control, panning control, 2 auxillary sends for the normal tracks, mute and solo buttons, and a stereo level meter with 60dB range.
DarkWave Studio also includes: ES Kick (Rave Kick Generator) and ES QuadDelay (4 Parralel Delay Units with LFO modulated delay time and a band pass filter).
