n-Track Software has released n-Track Studio 9. The new version features a new look, new audio plug-ins and improved workflow tools.
The user interface sports a new graphic design and many improvements to editing capabilities on the timeline. It also adds an on-screen drum kit and improvements to Piano Roll MIDI editing.
New audio effects
n-Track VocalTune is a new plug-in that is designed to make vocals pitch perfect. A user can optionally select the musical scale their track must follow and adjust the amount and speed of the correction. Using VocalTune a user can do anything from simple pitch correction to completely transforming vocal tracks.
Connect a guitar straight to the computer, drop n-Track Guitar Amp on a track and hear the tones that the plug-in extracts from the guitar. Three amplifier heads are included: Sparkle is a warm toned twangy head, Crunch adds more distortion for heavier or rock sounds and Lead goes all out to extend the musical palette to metallic rhythm and lead sounds. The new Guitar Amp plug-in features new algorithms that simulate the sound of classic amp heads, and real impulse responses taken from vintage and modern cabinets models. A user can also choose different microphone types, and play around with the mics positions on the cabinet.
The new n-Track Bass Amp plugin uses the same technology of Guitar Amp to feature bass amp head simulation. The plug-in lets a user choose between various cabinet models, for sounds ranging from deep, driven basses to more present and high-end rich ones.
