Steinberg Media Technologies has announced the launch of Sequel, a new entry-level music studio. Sequel features "studio-grade" technologies within a "one-window" user interface that opens up music creation and performance to anyone with a computer, and requires no knowledge of music or recording to produce great-sounding songs and mixes in just a few minutes. Sequel is priced at €99.00 and is shipping now to music instrument stores worldwide.
"Sequel is a brand-new and exciting way to experience making music on a computer," states Arnd Kaiser, Senior Product Manager for Music Technology at Steinberg. "Combining intuitive tools to record, edit, mix and perform music with great-sounding loops, instruments and effects, Sequel is the perfect first step into music production and performance. It’s never been more fun to make music on a Mac or PC."
Sequel is custom-designed for newcomers to music production. A uniquely accessible GUI gives intuitive access to recording, mixing and editing features engineered for the first-time producer. Over 5000 loops that cover just about any modern musical style are supplied, and combined with over 600 instantly playable instruments on board provide first-time music producers and composers with a huge sonic armory to get their first productions rolling.
With Steinberg audio technology, Sequel features discreet yet powerful audio warping functions that keep first-time users in key and in time. Sequel also includes an accessible live performance mode, that allow Sequel songs to be rearranged, remixed and remolded live for performance on stage and in clubs or at parties. Integrated FX including EQ and dynamics on every channel provide all the tools needed to produce outstanding mixes.
Sequel is available now in music stores worldwide, and costs €99.00.
