Record, create, edit. Make music.
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.
Modular design for creative freedom
Besides the traditional mixer view, you can choose to view racks and their plugins in a modular fashion. Connect racks together using virtual cables. The only limit is the number of inputs and outputs of your plugins.
Racks, Plugins, Tracks, Patterns
Sequencing in Ohm Studio is based on a fundamental principle: what is usually known as channel strips on the mixer are called ‘Racks’ and they contain one or more Plugins. These Plugins - VST or proprietary - ultimately contain Tracks along which audio and MIDI Patterns will be sequenced. This system is powerful in that it allows you to manage multi-timbral MIDI instruments, create complex layers of automation, and more, all the while designing signal flow the way you want it.
You can get the hi-hat and the snare drum on separate tracks for the same drum patch or you can get that Minimonsta part in the same clip as its filter cut-off automation. Combined with audio/midi clips that support linked instances, ghost looping and trimming, Ohm Studio’s logic of arrangement can fit all manner of composing styles.
Once your tracks are done, mix them using inserts, left-right or mid-side panning and a completely flexible modular routing. If you don’t know how to make it sound good, invite a friend or browse the cohmmunity to find a skilled mixing engineer… then simply watch the knobs move and faders slide up and down while the job gets done.
Drag and drop audio samples or MIDI files and they will appear on the sequence and be synchronised (backed up) with the server in the blink of an eye. If you want to mix or master your tracks in another program, or for any other purpose, export all or part of your project to disk.
Easy to get started with
Despite the many possibilities Ohm Studio already offers, you can start making music quickly thanks to its simple interface and its similarity to other digital audio workstations in many respects. Built-in tutorials will help you understand most of the features: if you still need help, switch to the general chat and ask a question in plain English. Chances are that you’ll get online tech support from another Ohm Studio user.
