Mixing Tips & Tricks

General Tips ‘N’ Trickz

We are releasing a new BETA Chrome Studio that is focused on bringing more stability into the Studio.

Most likely the biggest improvement in stability will be for users that have versatile projects spanning over many channels
with lots of effects etc. We would be very happy if you take it for a test drive and report back any problems or failures
that appear (any other observations are also welcome) to beta@soundation.com (no bug reports in the comments thanks)

Bonus points for replication steps of a problem.

@XJM: Great idea with the export, and I've toyed with it a little bit myself. The biggest problem is the sample/synth crossovers cannot match up. Samples would have to be in exactly the right place to be found correctly by the export software, or embedded in the export file (which would make it unnecessarily large). There's a lot of hoops to jump through, and frankly I don't think the end justifies the means.

@Greg, it all depends what you want out of your computer. Generally I'd say at least have a good sound card, plenty of RAM, and a good CPU (generally fast and can handle multiple processes). It's all up to you, in the end. This is regardless of OS and DAW and Soundation is no exception.

While we're on the topic, what are the pros and cons of PCs and Macs in terms of performance? Everyone's been telling me that I should be producing with a Mac, but I run FL on my PC and it seems pretty good.

Are there any plans for making it so when you recieve a message you get a instant notification to make it when your in the studio you don't give the person a very slow reply. Also are there plans to make a reply button for comments to make it a bit easier to see who is talking to who specifically for group discussions.

(adding on a idea also...) I was thinking about this yesterday, also. What if users could export a soundation song in the format of logic pro or something... Like Soundation could export a Logic Pro, Ableton, FL Studio, or Cubase project. Maybe in reverse too if none of those companies mind, I guess.

I do think that Soundation does have the potential to allow someone to make professional work. I've seen the studio get so much more powerful since I started over two years ago. And Soundation Studio is only a little over two years actually (pretty sure). I've been looking to get my hands on Logic Pro (along with an iMac specially made for music making) but that won't stop me from using Soundation along with Logic. It may not be the best DAW out there but it's definitely PowerFX's best product (at least imo ;) ).

@Kyle Watts (Acer1691) and Greg Leddy. You have now idea how flattered we are that you compare us to native running software. It is sometimes easy to forget that Soundation runs off the web.

@KRackEd EkHo. Automating tempo is very tricky when you have sounds generated by synths in real time and audio samples played back. It just doesn't work well and this applies for any daw.

@XJM. We are working on collaboration.... Not ready to give out any details yet.

@duskmusicuk. All of those things are already being worked on. We just have to finish up one thing before we can start to really add more stuff to Soundation.
