Magix Sequoia v18.104.22.168 [x86] [DVD]
Новая версия профессиональной программы для звукозаписи, радиовещания и звуковой обработки. Программа используется такими известными студиями, как BBC, German public broadcasters WDR, MDR, SWR, the Vienna Symphonic Library, а также студией Sterling Sound in New York.
Sequoia 12 is designed to meet the high demands of professional users and represents a new milestone in the development of software solutions for radio broadcasting, audio post production and mastering. The newest generation of Sequoia sets new standards for high-definition DAWs by offering maximum flexibility, performance and efficiency. With extensive improvements to its unique multisync editing, loudness metering according to EBU R128, enhanced spectral cleaning and constant new developments to its source/destination editing, Sequoia 12 offers professionals everything they need for top level audio production.
Mastering & post production
For post-production, the option to use the audio input from the sound card for synchronizing Sequoia with the local external timecode is also available. AAF / OMF support enables projects to be exchanged between platforms quickly.
After a film has been dubbed completely, Sequoia allows a display copy to be created quickly without the use of any additional additional programs. The video can be exported including the finished mix directly from Sequoia in different formats.
For years, Sequoia has been an integral part of leading broadcast and mastering studios worldwide, including the BBC, German public broadcasters WDR, MDR, SWR, the Vienna Symphonic Library, and Sterling Sound in New York. For sound engineers, music producers, radio journalists, and so on, Sequoia is an indispensable tool for any type of professional media production. Registered users enjoy professional service and customer-oriented support.
Sequoia 12 now offers the advantages of 64-bit support in Windows systems. In addition to 32-bit 3rd party plugins, the program is now also compatible with 64-bit plugins. A definite advantage of 64-bit environments is the lack of a 4 GB memory limit. On a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit system the amount of useable memory can increases up to 192 GB. Projects that use a range of memory consuming plugins or samples benefit greatly from the additional memory. Sequoia can also be used perfectly in 32-bit environments.
If you installed the 64-bit version of Windows on your system you can use Sequoia as a 64-bit or 32-bit version. The internal VST bridge makes it possible to use both 32- and 64-bit plugins.
Current limitations: 64-bit video functionality only for MXV and WMV.
Revised metering and broadcast norms
The metering display in Sequoia 12 has been completely revised resulting in numerous graphical improvements that allow users to choose various layouts and customize the visualization. Sequoia 12 also provides presets for the following broadcast norms:
- Type I, DIN scale
- Type I, Nordic scale
- Type IIA, BBC
- Type IIB, EBU
Loudness Metering (EBU R128 and ITU-R BS.1771)
The most important addition to metering in Sequoia 12 is loudness metering, which has become one of the most important topics in the radio world in recent years, and is rapidly taking over from common peak-based metering methods. Until now peak control using peak levels (-9 dBGS as a rule) has been the standard in radio production. Peak limiters were often used to limit an audio signal's dynamics but they also had a negative effect on the sound quality.
In combination with the introduction of open standards for peak control there are reliable ways for engineers and producers to describe subjective loudness in countable terms.
Sequoia 12 allows for the switch to EBU R128 and ITU-R BS.1771 loudness metering on the fly.
ITU Recommendation BS.1770 forms the basis of international loudness measurement standards.
True Peak Metering
In addition to the method for loudness metering ITU-R BS.1770 provides a recommendation for measuring peak levels of digital audio signals. The device measures the peak value of the digital signal when it is reproduced in the analog domain. Samples of the signal are taken at regular intervals determined by the sample rate. As illustrated in figure 4, it can not be assured that samples exactly match audio peaks. Theses peaks will be restored once the waveform is reconstructed or when signals are processed. Due to the reduced precision of the Sample Peak Meter these new samples may clip or distort, even if the original samples had not been full scale. The common peak meter cannot display “true” peak values.
Sequoia introduces True Peak Metering in Version 12 along with the loudness metering functions. For this reason, the identification of these inter-sample peaks are displayed with 4-times oversampling of the signal and thereby enabling the detection of true peaks.
Mixing “in the box” has become more popular in applications with limited space e.g. in fly-away kits for music recording and mobile SNG teams for news production. Working with VCAs (voltage controlled amplifiers) or DCAs (digitally controlled amplifiers) simplifies the mixing and finalizing process.
The levels of channels assigned to a VCA group are controlled from one of Sequoia’s mixer VCA faders.
Any number of channel faders can be assigned to any of the VCA master faders. Additionally, any existing channel fader can be changed into a VCA fader. By showing the VCA “ghost faders” in individual channels, the resulting volume depending on the control volume of the VCA master can be monitored.
Independence Sampler Workstation
Independence is the ultimate sampler workstation for professional music production in the studio and for live performances and it is – also available now in Sequoia 12. The first class premium sample library with 70 GB of content and hundreds of instruments, arranger and step sequencer patches make Independence an extremly powerful tool for creating sample based compositions.
- Newly designed audio engine
- 70 GB Premium sample libraries
- Load VST effects and VST instruments from third parties
- Supports processors with up to 8 cores
- Drag'n'Drop support for audio and MIDI files
- Incredible file browser including attribute based batch processing
In broadcast and advanced music production, especially when time is a decisive factor, easy-to-use effects with sophisticated sound quality become essential. The design goal for all of Sequoia’s essentialFX is to achieve maximum sound quality by using only five knobs.
The concept behind the operation of essentialFX is the same for all of the FX in the suite which makes learning how to use them faster and easier. Along with the usual standards, Sequoia 12 now has a host of new effects for tweaking your audio productions.
