Bremmers Audio Design - MultitrackStudio v4.1 (Pc/Lite version Free)

Image Hosted by
MultitrackStudio is audio/MIDI multitrack recording software for Windows.
It combines a multitrack recorder, a mixer, lots of effects and a MIDI sequencer in one package: everything that's needed to turn your computer into a digital multitrack sound recording studio.
Audio Recording: Audio tracks can be recorded while playing along with previously recorded ones.
MIDI Recording: MIDI tracks can be recorded using a MIDI keyboard. Not only can the instrument sounds be generated by your keyboard, soundcard or other MIDI hardware, but by the built-in sampler or VSTi / DXi plugins as well.
Editing: Both audio and MIDI tracks can be edited to get rid of any mistakes. The MIDI editing features include pianoroll, notation, drum and pattern editing.
Mixing: MultitrackStudio has a powerful mixer structure including an unlimited number of Effect Return and Group sections, numerous built-in quality effects and VST and DX plugin support.
Mastering: Finally you can mix all tracks down to a single audio file. This file can be imported in your CD-writer software.
Ease of use: MultitrackStudio proves that multitrack recording on a computer can be as easy as tape-based recording. Its non-computerlike design makes it easy to use, and yet powerful. If you like singing and playing your instruments better than trying to figure out some complicated piece of software you'll most certainly like MultitrackStudio!
