Serato Studio is the fastest growing DAW on the market. Since its arrival in 2019, the audio workstation has grown into a powerful, feature-packed tool that’s perfect for beatmakers, remixers, producers and any musician looking for a fast and fresh way to capture their ideas.
With version 1.6, Serato Studio is stepping up to the next level. With the arrival of recording, music makers can now capture audio directly into the DAW from any audio source. That could mean adding vocals on top of your latest beat, recording synths or instrument loops or capturing samples straight from a vinyl turntable. The intuitive UI makes it easy to seamlessly capture, edit and overdub, and the onboard effects mean you can refine your recordings and perfect your sound without reaching for external applications.
There are refinements to Studio’s audio tracks too. Users can now drag-and-drop clips between tracks, speeding up the Song View workflow and helping to keep things organised – even when projects involve lots of recording and editing. Audio tracks have gained three additional effects slots too, making a total of six per-track.
The new Serato Virtual Audio Driver doubles down further on the DAW’s flexibility. Users could already take advantage of Serato Studio’s ‘Make Audio Available to other Applications’ function, allowing projects to be routed out of the DAW and into external applications. The new Virtual Audio Driver for Mac makes this even more versatile, with added routing control as well as full compatibility for Big Sur users. This unlocks a host of possibilities for music-makers, like live streaming direct from Serato Studio, new cross-DAW workflows or fresh ways to collaborate with other musicians.
These new features join Serato Studio’s existing powerful-yet-intuitive toolset. Get your ideas down quickly with the easy-to-use sequencer stocked with over 300 pre-made drum patterns. Quickly chop, time-stretch or key-shift your audio with Studio’s built-in sampler - the same one used by some of the biggest beatmakers in the world. Get started straight away with quality built-in drum kits, loops and samples, and stay inspired by adding fresh sound packs from world-class producers.
No other DAW breaks down creative roadblocks like Serato Studio. Beatmakers, vocalists and remixers alike can get their ideas down in minutes, switch things up with recorded instruments or vocal takes, rework lyrics or grooves, and nail down a professional sound – all without interrupting the flow. Then take things further still with VST or AU plugins, automation and stem export.
