A highly automated and intuitive digital audio workstation

Intuitive Editing

Easily select, move, resize, clone, link, loop, delete and cut objects with a single tool or extend its functionality with additional specialized tools, and enjoy adaptive snapping in every arranger.

Limitless Automation

Automate almost anything with automation events using straight lines, ramps and curves, or with LFOs and envelopes.

Mixing Capabilities

In-context listening, signal groups, FX tracks, MIDI effect and insert slots, pre and post-fader aux sends and anywhere-to-anywhere routing.

Chord Assistance

Generate chords from scales in the chord pad, audition and invert chords or save your own chord presets, manage your chord progression in the chord track and enjoy chord highlighting in the piano roll.

Audio Plugins

Support for every major plugin format including LV2, VST2, VST3, AU, CLAP and JSFX, with additional support for SFZ and SF2 soundfonts and sandboxing thanks to Carla.

Featureful Timeline

Organize your work into multiple layers in the same track using track lanes, quickly bounce anything to audio, import/export a wide variety of audio and MIDI formats, stretch or loop any region and select from an array of track types for every purpose.

Never Lose Work

Recover your work with automatic project backups, undo almost any user action and even save your undo history with projects.
