Amptrack Technologies announces Amped Studio: The world’s first hybrid DAW.

Work both in the cloud and natively with Amptrack Technologies’ Amped Studio: The world’s first hybrid DAW.

Amped Studio is an online music creation platform that works both in the cloud and natively. The combination of instant access to a web-based music studio stocked with instruments and effects, plus an integrated sound library along with the native power, stability, and compatibility with industry standard VSTs make Amped Studio totally unique.

Amped Studio is the first DAW that allows users to shift away from having to use one single computer, freeing them to work where or how they choose. Now with access to their studio anywhere, users can seamlessly move between native and web versions. Tracks can be synched to the cloud and shared with the world, offering musicians, students and producers more possibilities to work and collaborate than ever.

Amped studio offers two different account types — free and premium. Free is exactly what it says, and does not require a credit card. Premium comes with additional features and costs $4.99/month. Compare the two account types here.


Synchro Arts announces the release of Revoice Pro 3.3.

In a recent Pro Tools Expert poll comparing pitch correction software, listeners chose Revoice Pro’s output as the most preferred.

Revoice Pro is a standalone vocal pitch correction program which includes two unique, automatic editing processes, manual time/pitch warp processes and a double track generator. It is also workflow-optimized for integration with most major DAWs.

Some notable features of version 3.3 include improvements to level and pitch editing specific to sibilants, a new processing intensity display, selection-based processing, and other improved workflow efficiencies.

Revoice Pro 3.3 is a free update for Revoice Pro license owners and requires an iLok USB and license. To accompany the launch, Synchro Arts are offering a 30% discount on Revoice Pro until April 30th, 2017.

New licenses of Revoice Pro 3 are currently on sale for $419.30; Trade-ins for Revoice 1 and 2 are currently available for $126.


Impact Soundworks announces the availability of Peak Rider 2.

With Peak Rider 2, users have extensive flexibility over the dynamic characteristics of a signal while keeping its integrity entirely in tact.

Impact Soundworks advances the creative scope of its popular Peak Rider release with Peak Rider 2 — a dynamic processing plugin for any AU, AAX, RTAS, and VST-compatible DAW host supporting sidechaining.

Peak Rider 2 can be used to precisely match the dynamics of one signal to another, subtract or invert these peaks, closely follow the level of a generated tone, or equalize a signal while retaining the exact dynamic characteristics. Creatively, it can also be used for transient designing, tight drum gating, dynamic retention across distortion or other effects, reshaping stereo imaging, and much more.

Peak Rider 2 can be purchased directly from Impact Soundworks for $99. A free demo version is also available here. Owners of the original Peak Rider receive a discount coupon in their user account to upgrade for only $10.


Focusrite gives customers a free Exponential Audio plugin.

Existing Focusrite hardware users can get the Exponential Audio R2 — a unique character reverb — for free as part of this month’s Plugin Collective offer.

Worth $239, the Exponential Audio R2 stereo reverb plugin is free for Focusrite hardware customers (iLok 2 or iLok 3 required) in this month’s Plugin Collective offer. Those who register Focusrite hardware before May 1st, 2017 (or those who have already registered) receive the plugin by signing into their Focusrite accounts.

R2 is one of the first and most popular Exponential Audio plugins. It has been an essential part of countless music mixes, as well as films and broadcasts. The plugin is known as a character reverb that adds a tasty finish to any source material, and is capable of adding warmth and fatness to mixes that might otherwise be sterile. For soloists, it has a savory and deep tail that adds a high-production gloss to anything.

When Focusrite hardware customers redeem their R2 license, they will become eligible for 40% off R2 Surround and 50% off R4.
