Indaba Music launches online digital audio editing tools
But once Session Console 2.0 is loaded, it works as a powerful digital audio workstation that blurs the lines between local and remote storage. You can import hundreds of drum, bass, guitar, and other audio from Indaba's library, or download tracks you've uploaded to an Indaba Music Session. You can also click the big red record button to record a new track using your computer's audio hardware and save it to an online session.
Session Console 2.0 offers true multi-track, non-destructive audio editing. In other words, you can load up a bunch of audio files and apply dozens of effects in real-time without affecting the original source files. This makes it easy to create a mix, then a remix, then another remix, and then go back to the original version of the audio to start all over again from scratch.
The software is still a little rough around the edges. It locked up on me when I tried importing audio files from my desktop or files I'd used for an older Indaba Music project. But I had no problem loading a few of Indaba's pre-recorded guitar and drum samples to play around. It's worth keeping in mind, this is still Alpha software, and it might be worth keeping an eye on if you're looking for a quick and easy audio editing solution that you can use from any Java-enabled computer.
You can check out a demo video from Indaba Music after the break.
