Ohm Force has released Ohm Studio 1.0 – its real-time collaborative digital audio workstation software for Windows and Mac.
They describe Ohm Studio as “the first real-time collaborative digital audio workstation.”
Here’s what they have to say about Ohm Studio:
With Ohm Studio, you can record audio at high quality. Set up your audio interface, check the I/Os, arm your track(s), prepare your instrument and let?s go! Once recorded, your tracks are directly available on the cloud for every member of the project. A rock band can have their raw tracks recorded in no time, every member from their own place, in their own time!
The same is true for MIDI. Choose an instrument – whether it?s our UVI-powered multi-timbral instrument, some GForce included classic virtual analog, or any of your VST plugins – and record, draw and edit MIDI notes and events. Or let your partners do it for you.
