Berlin, Germany (March 13, 2012)—Magix will present its Sequoia 12 high-definition digital audio workstation at this month’s Musikmesse in Frankfurt.
The new version reportedly includes improvements in metering, support of all current broadcast standards and a new docking concept. The Sequoia 12 is targeted for recording or broadcast studios, live concerts or on-location reports. Visitors to the Magix booth (Hall 5.1, C79) can get their first look at Sequoia 12 at Musikmesse from March 21-24.
Loudness metering is a major part of the latest version, which, according to the company, supports the transition from peak-based measurements to loudness-based measurements for radio and television. The meter’s display has also been redesigned and offers various visualization layouts and presets for common broadcast standards.
The new docking concept reportedly allows the user to adjust the interface with drag-and-drop control. Whether for broadcasting, mastering or audio post production, the layout can be rearranged for any type of workflow.
Other features include track-level spectral editing, auto ducking and the ability to edit in real time. With Sequoia 12, recordings reportedly can be exported during the broadcast and can be saved in a database where everyone involved can access them and remain informed about the current status of the project. Also, the integration of the Independence Sampler Workstation into Sequoia 12 offers more than 70 GB of content and hundreds of instruments.
