Zynewave - Podium v1.67 (Pc)

Zynewave is the developer of Podium, a professional music production software solution for Windows PCs

Podium offers a unique hierarchic mixing engine that integrates audio recording, VST plugins and external MIDI and audio gear. Configuration of plugins and external hardware are encapsulated in an object based project structure, which hides the technical complexities when you want to focus on musical inspiration.

Advanced features includes 64-bit mixing, multiprocessor support, surround sound, integrated sound editor, preset librarian and spline curve automation of plugin, MIDI and mixer parameters. The number of supported devices, plugins, tracks, channels and mixer busses are practically unlimited. All this is presented in a stylish and customizable user interface.

Development concentrates on quality and stability. Software updates are released frequently and are planned with the involvement of the user community.

· A mixer bus can feed into other mixer busses.
· Any latency added by a mixer bus return processing will not affect realtime monitoring of tracks that are not sending to the mixer bus.
External hardware devices
· MIDI and audio routing of an external device can be handled on a single track.
· Automatic delay compensation of MIDI and audio latencies.
· Hardware devices and plugins can be routed interchangeably in the track hierarchy.
· Bounce recording allows using a single hardware device on multiple tracks.
VST plugins
· VST 2.4 support including 64-bit double precision processing.

· Insert bounce tracks anywhere in the hierarchic track tree.
· Bouncing can be done both by realtime recording and offline rendering.
· The audio events recorded on a bounce track can be moved around like normal sound events.

# Added top menu button to the devices panel with the following commands: 'New Folder...', 'Import Plugin...', 'Import Plugins from Folder...'.

# Added 'New Folder...' to arrangements panel top menu.

# Added 'Move to New Folder...' to the context menu of selected objects in the arrangements and devices list.

# Objects in the arrangements and devices panels can be drag reordered similar to how it's done in the list window. Holding the control key will drop the objects into the object under the cursor.

# Deleting mappings in the devices panel will automatically delete any related device definition folders.

# Added 'New projects folder' setting to the various page in the preferences dialog.

# Using the save command (Ctrl+S) on unsaved projects will automatically save the project in a sub-folder of the 'new projects folder'. A serial number is added to the folder name if a folder with the project name already exists. Previously you always had to use the save dialog to name the project file.

# The 'File:' info shown in the project properties panel on the start page will for an unsaved project instead show 'New file:' followed by the folder and filename that will be used on the first save. You can override this name by using the 'Save As' command.

# Unsaved sounds are now saved on disk in sub-folders matching their folder location in the project. This means that sounds created under an arrangement is saved in a sub-folder named after the arrangement.

# Added 'Save Project As Template' to the file menu, which will save a copy of the current project in the 'Zynewave Podium Projects\Library\Templates' folder. Saved template projects are available from a submenu of the 'New Project' file menu.

# Fix: The plugin scanning procedure has been moved from a background thread to the UI thread to fix compatibility issues with e.g. RealGuitar2.
