In version 8, particular emphasis was given to improved music production workflow through enhanced interface design, so that ideas can be crystallized and captured.

Audio Recording & Editing

The Playlist workspace can contain an unlimited number of audio tracks. It also gives you the flexibility to arrange discrete audio events in any order, and position the creative process the way you want to. Audio tools let you time-stretch, pitch-shift, beat-slice, chop, edit, and creatively destruct audio. The Image Line team has further enhanced its Edison Wave Editor, a totally integrated audio editing and recording tool with spectral analysis, convolution reverb, loop recording, and more.
