[Musikmesse] Magix Sequoia 12
Magix has released Sequoia 12 – a new version of the DAW for broadcasting, mastering and audio post-production.
The new digital audio workstation Sequoia 12 features improvements in metering, support of all current broadcast standards and the new docking concept, the company says. Sequoia 12 is now available from Magix for €2500.00 (taxes not included) and deals on upgrades are available for owners of previous versions. Visitors to the Magix booth (Hall 5.1, C79) can get a first look at Sequoia 12 at the Frankfurt Musikmesse from March 21 to March 24.
Loudness Metering according to the EBU recommendation R 128 is a part of the latest version which supports the transition from peak-based measurements to loudness-based measurements for radio and television. The meter's display has also been redesigned and offers various visualization layouts and presets for common broadcast standards.
The new docking concept allows the user to adjust the interface with drag & drop control. Whether for broadcasting, mastering or audio post-production, the layout can be rearranged for various types of workflow.
The new macro functionality is designed to provide faster workflow. Commonly recurring processes can be saved and activated using shortcuts.
Another feature is track-level spectral editing which is designed to deal with the noise interference that occurs during live recording or multitrack recording. More special features have been added for spectral editing projects such as audio restoration.
The new auto ducking feature which is particularly useful for radio and speech broadcasting where background music can be faded in and out automatically according to audio cues.
With Sequoia 12, recordings can be exported during the broadcast and can be saved in a database where everyone involved can access them and remain informed about the current status of the project.
The new VCA groups are designed to make daily studio routines more efficient. Productions can now be mixed and finalized in the DAW thanks to the grouping of tracks through virtual VCAs (Voltage Controlled Amplifiers).
64-bit support is now available.
The integration of the Independence Sampler Workstation into Sequoia 12 offers you 70 GB of content and hundreds of instruments.
