Quartz Audio Master (Freeware)

 

Well “HAPPY NEWYEAR” and let me tell you I completely forgot about last year resolution, NOT TO DRINK THIS YEAR!

So I ‘am a  little late with my review hope you will excuse me.

This month I would like to introduce you to a freeware program that can be upgraded to a pro version. I think they all should do this because just starting out there usually no money coming in and you have to start somewhere.

This is a neat little program called Quartz Audio Master (Freeware Version).

Quartz Audio Master Freeware will allow you to record, edit, mix, share and deliver your productions driving a fully integrated 4 track digital mixer, recorder, sound and time line editor in perfect synch with a 16 track MIDI sequencer.

You can easily record audio, in perfect sync with Midi, with any instrument or microphone or assemble already existing audio materials or music loops. Easily record Midi, as well, using a Midi keyboard or your computer keyboard and even if you are not a professional musician don’t get stuck by difficult parts to perform, thanks to the genuine 'Scale filtering' feature. A tutorial will help you getting started quickly

Then cut, copy, paste, move, repeat your audio elements and Midi elements and mix your tracks applying real-time DirectX or Quartz plug-in effects on audio. Need to fully edit GS or XG synths, everything’s there.

Want to work with remote musicians?

The genuine Quartz Audio multi-track compressed file format and DSP's (Digital Sound Planet) virtual studios will allow you to share your projects through the internet...

When everything’s finished, print your Score and/or easily mix down to standard stereo files using many formats including MP3 and publish it on internet !

That’s pretty great for free don’t you think?

Well, what if you need up to 128 tracks of audio and 128 tracks of Midi?

You need precise graphical automation?

You need heaps of inputs and outputs, professional resolution and sample rate as well as Gain, Phase Inverter, EQ and Dynamics processing on each track plus a whole bunch of editing features and effect plug-ins?

Quartz Audio Master Professional is the first-class music production tool for your pro music studio which will help you realize your professional projects.

Quartz Audio Master Pro will allow you to record, edit, mix, share and deliver your productions driving a fully integrated 128 tracks digital mixer, recorder, sound and time line editor in perfect synch with a powerful 128 tracks MIDI sequencer.

easily record musicians playing together, in perfect sync with Midi, while using monitoring sub-mixes for instance - or any live sounds or assemble already existing audio materials or music loops. Just as before with the Freeware Version, easily record Midi, in perfect sync with audio, as well, using a Midi keyboard or your computer keyboard and don’t get stuck by difficult parts to perform up to the program genuine ‘Scale filtering’ feature. There is a tutorial for QAMP also.

Then cut, copy, paste, move, repeat, optimize, edit, time-stretch, pitch shift your audio elements and Midi elements and mix your tracks applying unlimited chains of real-time DirectX, VST or Quartz plug-in effects or third-party hardware effectors using 8 aux buses and up to 16 stereo outputs on audio and Midi effect processors on Midi and finally precisely control your tracks using manual and/or graphical automation.

Need to fully edit GS or XG synths, draw Midi controller curves, and transform Midi data in any possible way, everything’s there.

You need to work under a musical environment and be able to sync audio with changing tempos or, at the opposite, under a time code-based environment for creating video soundtracks for instance; Quartz Audio Project will make it!

Time is precious! You need to browse quickly into a mix - you can create Markers, you need to easily test different structures for your mix - the “Arranger” will make it for you, you need to sub-group tracks for quick listening of audio parts or sync in any possible way with external devices or programs as Master or Slave or even accurately measure the audio signal flow - it’s there and ready to be used!

Want to work with remote musicians, organize sessions with distant people? The genuine Quartz Audio multi-track compressed file format and our virtual studios will allow you to share your projects through the internet.

This is really a great program whether you want to use the freeware program or the professional program you should check it out.
