n-Track is one of the most cross platform available DAWs around, and probably covers more platforms than anyone else. n-Track is on macOS, Windows, iOS and Android too. This latest version of the app features a new look, new audio plugins and improved workflow tools, but for now, as far as I’m aware, it’s a macOS and Windows release. I don’t know if mobile platforms are coming soon, but I’m hopeful as ever. The previous versions of the mobile apps have been excellent, so I’ve no concerns about updates.
Here’s the basis of what’s in n-Track 9:
A Redesigned GUI
The user interface sports a new graphic design and many improvements to editing capabilities on the timeline. It also adds an on-screen drum kit and improvements to Piano Roll MIDI editing.
New audio effects
n-Track VocalTune is a new plugin that can make vocals pitch perfect. Simply put the plugin on a vocal track and any subtle tuning imperfections will be automatically polished. You can optionally select the musical scale your track must follow and adjust the amount and speed of the correction. Using VocalTune you can do anything from simple pitch correction to completely transforming your vocal tracks.
Connect your guitar straight to the computer, drop n-Track Guitar Amp on a track and hear the beautifully rich tones that the plugin extracts from the guitar. Three amplifier heads are included: Sparkle is a warm toned twangy head, Crunch adds more distortion for heavier or rock sounds and Lead goes all out to extend the musical palette to metallic rhythm and lead sounds. The new Guitar Amp plugin features new algorithms that simulate the sound of classic amp heads, and real impulse responses taken from vintage and modern cabinets models. You can also choose different microphone types, and play around with the mics positions on the cabinet.
The new n-Track Bass Amp plugin uses the same technology of Guitar Amp to feature bass amp head simulation. The plugin lets you choose between various cabinet models, for sounds ranging from deep, driven basses to more present and high-end rich ones.
