Tracktion has announced the launch Waveform Pro 12.5, a new free update for all Waveform Pro 12 users providing new features that include enhanced video support, DJ edit tools, stem separation and a host of workflow and UI improvements.
Building on the existing Waveform Free Feature Expansions, Pro 12.5 adds two new packs to the list, including Pro Video and DJ Mix Tools. These expansions are available to purchase individually in Waveform Free 12, allowing users to build their own DAW by adding the features best suited to their workflow and budget.
With the new Pro Video functions, multiple video clips can now be dragged into a single project and arranged or edited as needed. Scalable thumbnails make syncing audio easier, and audio fades and effects plugins can be applied directly to video tracks. Once a project is complete, Waveform 12.5 can export high resolution video directly from the edit, and alternatively, users can render and replace audio on existing video files.
Music editing is improved with the new DJ Mix Tools, which now also includes Stem Separation. New functions include automatic temp sync and coloured waveforms to help identify sections of songs or specific elements within a clip. In addition, Stem Separation means users can split stereo mixes or extract specific elements like a vocal or drums.
Workflow improvements include Global Tracks Fold to help keep tracks orgainized, Loop Selection Move, and quick access to master channel plugins. Task management has also been upgraded with enchantments to the Rack — multi-out plugins can now be automatically wrapped, a plugin can now be set as a default, new Meter controls have been added to Faceplates, plus a Rack’s Faceplate can now have its own window which itself can be set as a default.
Tracktion has also launched a 40 percent off all products on their website from now until June 10. To download Waveform Pro 12.5, upgrade from previous versions or add new feature expansions to Waveform FREE 12, go to tracktion.com.
