And with dynamic resizing, your Control Bar will always look good regardless of your PC screen's resolution.
Virtual Onscreen Controller. Programming MIDI synth lines and beats has never been more fun, thanks to the new onscreen virtual MIDI controller ‐ play your parts right from your touch screen with any multi-touch compatible monitor or PC. You can also use any QWERTY keyboard, so you don't need to carry around a separate hardware MIDI controller.
the MixStrip. Dial in a masterful mix. The new MixStrip, integrated directly into Music Creator's Track View, makes it easy to achieve superior mixes in less time. The MixStrip includes the built-in, high-quality Curve EQ on every track, and the new Style Dial FX offer speedy, one-knob access to the most commonly used effects.
Guitar Amp and Effects. Overloud's TH2 Creator brings acclaimed amp modeling technology to Music Creator 7. Whether you want a bone-crushing riff, shimmering rhythm part, or blistering lead, TH2 Creator's 3 amps, 4 cabinets, 5 pedals, and mics dish out the big, lifelike tones and expressive playability you crave. Plug in, turn up, rock out ‐ or throw on headphones and record anytime, anywhere.
Enter the Matrix. Load your audio and MIDI loops, phrases, and one-shots into cells and columns, then trigger them in real time ‐ it's like merging performing and recording. Best of all, it's fun: Whether you're composing new arrangements, creating remixes on the fly, or just getting out of a creative rut, the Matrix is the answer ‐ and you can capture the entire performance onto tracks in Music Creator. Tweak it, mix it, and arrange it until it's exactly what you want.
Improved Audio Editing. Music Creator 7 now features Cakewalk's unique "speed comping," so you can assemble a perfect performance from multiple takes with a simple swipe of the mouse ‐ ideal for vocals and guitar solos. And you'll be clicking less than ever thanks to the Smart Tool, which adapts to your workflow‐whether you're editing audio or MIDI data. Also, editing is a snap with the Smart Grid ‐ which automatically sets the snap resolution and visual grid line to match the current zoom level.
Enhanced MIDI Editing. The only variable separating you from your creativity is time, and the Pattern Tool ‐ which sits in the Smart Tool palette for instant access ‐ is all about saving time. Forget cut and paste: Simply select and paint MIDI loops and patterns across the Piano Roll View and Track View. In addition, Music Creator now allows for MIDI time-stretching, velocity layering, and additional functionality to simplify MIDI editing even further. And it's all wrapped in a brand new Piano Roll View with improved zoom that makes editing MIDI a piece of cake.
Step Sequencer. From minimal to maniacal, build beats in classic fashion with Music Creator 7's groove-churning Step Sequencer. Move fast with Auto Populate, then tweak patterns down to their very core with per-lane and per-step flam, offset, swing, and probability control. Launch it from any softsynth window, and immediately start creating rhythm patterns that do mean a thing.
Pro Mixing at Your Fingertips. Control volume, pan, EQ, effects and more using Music Creator's Console View ‐ a faithful emulation of the hardware-based, vintage mixing consoles that are the heart of professional studios. See your tracks and levels at a glance, and take advantage of built-in EQ on every track ‐ as well as 18 audio and MIDI effects ‐ to hone the perfect sound.
