Cakewalk Audio FX 3 SoundStage allows the design of acoustic environments in which to play back digital audio, resulting in unique, realistic reverb. It features two views: Performer’s View and Room View. In creating an optimized room, click and drag the computer mouse to move walls and change ceiling height. Choose from different microphones, and place them inside the room. Then assign each audio track to different “performer” positions to hear custom reverb on each track. Soundstages can be saved for other sessions, or used as a template for other designs. Audio FX 3 includes ready-to-use soundstages as well.
