About Magix Sequoia 11 Multitrack Recording & Editing Software
Sequoia is purely native PC software and therefore independent of proprietary audio hardware. Basically, that means the video production program works just as well on a laptop as on an audio workstation with dozens of inputs and outputs. Hardware Independent, you can simply pre-produce your interviews on a laptop and then complete them later using a studio system. Magix Sequoia software provides all of the freedom you need to choose your own system. MME, ASIO*, and WDM support all important driver models.

An outstanding strength of Samplitude and Sequoia software is the absolute sound neutrality featured. Highly developed digital algorithms, absolute phase stability, and continuous application of floating point calculations ensure that the sound maintains its special nuances during even the most intense digital processing. This results in transparency, neutrality, maintenance of transients, and space. Different audio formats from 16-bit to 32-bit floating point and sample rates up to 384 kHz are possible in the same arrangement.

This Magix Sequoia software update adjusts perfectly to the user's needs for the most diverse applications. Save valuable time with your radio productions via seamless linking to radio content management systems from DAVID Systems and VCS. Swap individual files at the press of a button or even manage entire Sequoia projects in databases. When connected with our user management and administrator functions, Magix Sequoia is perfectly suited for integration into networks and digital workflows.

For more involved (multitrack) editing, Magix Sequoia media production software offers unique features for media production like multi-synchronous cut, a consistent further development of the source/destination editing model, including a convenient crossfade editor.

Sequoia video software is capable of using multi-track projects to burn Red Book. compatible master CDs. These CDs may even feature to copy protection, UPC/EAN, ISRC codes, pre-emphasis, and CD text. Formats for transferring the project to the vinyl press include DDP or wave export including cue list. For post-production, the option to use the audio input from the sound card for synchronizing Magix 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, Sequoia can be used to produce a visual copy without the need for additional programs. The video can be exported from Sequoia in different formats including the finished mixing.

Magix Sequoia has been an integral part of leading broadcast and mastering studios worldwide for years, including WDR, MDR, SWR, the Vienna Symphonic Library, and Sterling Sound in New York. The range of functionality makes Sequoia the perfect choice for any kind of media production. Ideal for home and project studios, sound engineers, music producers, and radio journalists, Sequoia offers registered users professional service, customer-oriented support, an exclusive forum, and free support. The "Cleaning & Restoration Suite" for perfectly restoring audio data and the support of AAF and OMF files are already contained in Sequoia.

The media production software gives you professional 4-point editing that connects the advantages of a linear audio editing studio with those of a non-linear hard disk system. Multi-synchronous Cut (MuSyC) completes & supports the conventional method of editing an audio recording, especially for classical music. The crossfade editor controls every parameter and are computed in real-time, meaning modifications to the crossfade are immediate. Seamless integration into the workflow of radio content management systems (CMS), DAVID Systems DigaSystem and VCS dira. Version 11 also features improvements to workflow and operation suggested by users to make Sequoia even more intuitive and easier to customize.

Source/Destination Editing
Sequoia video software includes a professional 4-point editing function. The method is especially effective and intuitive, since it connects the advantages of a linear audio editing studio with those of a non-linear hard disk system.

Two display areas let you view and play back source and destination tracks simultaneously and independently of each other. The lower area of the screen (source) displays the source material, i.e. all of the recorded material and takes.

The upper area displays the target tracks (destination). The cut material is arranged here with the mouse or keyboard. You always retain control of the whole project by being able to navigate in the source material while playback is running in the destination area. The actual editing takes place via markers. In and out markers in the source indicate the material that should be copied into the destination after a cut command.

This method may be used to quickly realize steps that would otherwise be very time-consuming, e.g. replacement of a passage in a finished multi-track edit with a version that may be played slightly longer. For source/destination, only in/out markers in the source and destination. The edit command inserts the correct passage and moves the remaining audio material synchronously across all tracks to the new edges of the cut.

Advanced crossfade editor
The crossfade editor controls every parameter of a crossfade. All crossfades are calculated in real time, i.e. changes to a crossfade are immediate and may be played back without and intermediate saving or waiting time. The keyboard and menu commands for operating the crossfade editor may be configured freely and enable users to work however they prefer. For example, fade curves and lengths can be changed, different playback commands may be applied to the positions of the fades in the audio material in order to evaluate transitions as a best as possible, to quickly compare fade variations via snapshots.

A special advantage of this is that the unused material may also be viewed to the left or right of the crossfade, and that it may also be listened to as required. This enables extremely precise adjustments to be made to the edit point and the transition.

Multi-synchronous cut
Multi-Synchronous cutting, i.e. MuSyC, completes and supports the conventional method of editing an audio recording, especially for classical music. Imagine MuSyC as an assistant for the editing process. You may work normally with the Source Destination Cut, but the functions of the MuSyC system are available at any time.

The goal of MuSyC is to minimize time spent searching for similar passages of music, thereby accelerating the editing process. MuSyC enhances working with source and destination projects with an overview project. If a passage of music has been recorded multiple times, then these will be available in the source as multiple takes. The overview project primarily serves for navigating in the source. Each take is represented by its own object. Musically equal material is organized in parallel and temporally ideal. This allows takes to be switched exactly according to the sound while an alternative recording is monitored as an overview.

If the active track (i.e. the active take) is switched in the overview project, the playback position and the "source points" will be automatically synchronized in the respective source project.

EuCon Protocol
MAGIX AG is delighted to announce the support of the EuCon Protocol in their High-End Digital Audio Workstation Sequoia 11 to integrate with the Professional Series of consoles and controllers designed and manufactured by Euphonix, a leader in large-format mixing consoles, control surfaces, and peripherals for more than twenty years.

The EuCon high-speed Ethernet control protocol allows Sequoia to be controlled from the Euphonix Pro range of consoles and controllers including the MC Pro and System 5-MC controllers, and the S5 Fusion and the System 5 digital audio mixing systems. EuCon allows high-speed, high-resolution control of fader, pans, plug-ins as well as access to many of the software's functions by the programmable keys on the Euphonix control surface for fast access to functions that are used most.

DDP export
DDP stands for Disc Description Protocol and describes the structure of a file group that is used for creating CDs or DVDs. Sequoia enables a CD project to be exported in the DDP standard. Many mastering engineers consider DDP to be superior in terms of data and transfer security. The included MAGIX DDP Xport tool writes a DDP file in the standard 1.01 or 2.0 onto the hard drive for online transfer to the vinyl press. All PQ and production data is transferred in this case. The integrity of your master may be verified after writing. A DDP that has already been written may also be re-imported for editing or for reorganization.

Video export
Videos that have been dubbed or mixed with Sequoia may be exported including finished mixes as new files. Formats include MPEG-2, DV-AVI, QuickTime MOV, and MXV with different codecs.

User management
Administrator functions in Sequoia may be used to set up different users, whereby each user may be registered with different settings. The different users can store their own settings like keyboard shortcuts, color settings, skins, standard folder paths, toolbars and icons, and crossfade presets.

Administrators also have the option of authorizing or blocking specific drives for users. Sequoia video production software may also be set up so that users can change system options while they are working, but Sequoia will open with the settings set as the standard the next time it is launched.

In order to transfer settings from one computer to another easily, all of the settings of a Sequoia systems may be saved as a container file. You may then determine which components should be transferred, e.g. general settings, display options and window positions, user administration, project templates, etc. This option enables administrators who need to manage several systems to conveniently set up a single computer and then transfer its settings to as many computers as required.

Revolver Tracks
The revolver tracks system in Magix Sequoia software is a type of rotation that may be used to replace various takes of a complete track behind the defined effects, fades and track settings. Different compositions of the track may also be produced. Different solos and parts may be easily switched back and forth in context, or exchanged and tested against each other in their effect in the final mix, without making any other changes in the arrangement. You may choose at any time if you would like to add a revolver track as a copy (e.g. for variation of effects or fades), or if you would like to create a new, empty revolver track. The time the respective variation was added to the original track is also displayed. The revolver tracks created can be displayed at any time in the Take Composer in a clearly laid-out manner.

5.1 Surround
Samplitude Pro offers several possibilities for mixing audio material in various multi-channel formats. All of the channels in the Surround Master may be assigned to any playback device and distributed to the existing Surround busses. But besides tracks, objects may also be routed directly to the Surround master to work via the Surround panorama module. Existing projects may also be mixed in the Surround format. The approach is quite easy to understand: Each audio track and every object may be assigned via the arranger to a specific position in the Surround panorama and then enriched with presets and effects.

MIDI Machine Control
This function is often referred to as MMC and ensures complete control of DAW's MIDI. Samplitude is able to function as MMC "Slave" or "Master": The program may be controlled remotely by external controllers or mixers with MMC support (= Slave), or an external device of your choice may be controlled by the software (track mute, track solo, play, record, etc.) (= Master), e.g. to actively control external hardware controllers. Of course, synchronization with a second sequencer is possible, e.g. to enable backup recordings. In this case, one of Samplitude's functions as the master to control the second instance of the program - from a single work area.

Manager, visualization, audio quantization, icon bars, and the time display window may now be coupled/docked with different areas of the project interface, or freely arranged on the screen.

Track Colors
Tracks may be colored directly via the track header. These colors are then displayed in the mixer for faster orientation within the project.

Skins & GUI Adjustments
The version of Samplitude software also features and improved interface with two new skins. The darker "Camo" skin and the brighter "Canis" skin are perfect for customizing the program's appearance.

Hybrid Audio Engine
The Hybrid Audio Engine includes a combination of a Low Latency and High Latency Engine. The Low Latency Engine reduces response times when calculating track effects and enables Live Monitoring at lower latencies. The integrated High Latency Engine, on the other hand, brings about more effective system utilization, which allows for the integration of sophisticated object effects, object auxiliaries & surround functions. The Hybrid Audio Engine is based on the ASIO driver system and, thanks to its low input/output delay at the same performance levels, optimizes the system especially when working with software instruments and other plug-ins. The combination of the two operating styles (with latency compensation of course) is also possible. This makes the software perfectly suitable for current requirements of the production process.

Object-oriented Editing
As well as the classic track-related editing options, Samplitude also provides object-level editing. This provides new opportunities for mixing and sound design. The audio material may be split into any number of objects and moved on the track freely. Every object can be edited with fades and effects, e.g. equalizer, timestretching, pitchshifting, or VST plug-ins. Even aux sends are possible at object level. This means that the aux send is only active for this object, making complicated automation unnecessary. The object editor offers real-time access to an object's settings.

All settings at the object level are calculated in real-time during playback; no new files are written to the hard drive. This saves space on the hard drive and allows settings to be changed again at any time. For example, you may discover that individual words from a vocal track require a pitch adjustment, so you could split each word, even every syllable into a single object. Each of these individual objects may be corrected with the real-time pitch correction function or edited in terms of volume and panorama or with fades and crossfades. Every object even features a complete range of effects and inserts for DirectX and VST plug-ins.

essentialFX provides a complete suite of new, alternative basic effects for dynamics, modulation, and other frequently used sound processes on a single screen. A lot of attention has been paid to modern design, effective display of the individual parameters, and as such to the simplicity of overall operation. This appearance of "understatement" conceals high-quality algorithms developed for daily work in the studio.

"sMax11" is a new limiter/maximizer that provides must-have services for mastering tasks. Basically, the function is a hard/brick wall limiter with input amplification. Specification of input amplification allows the loudness of the audio signal to be increased easily. At the same time, the sMax11 ensures that the signal does not exceed the flexibly set output level. The control at the basis of the modification may also be configured by setting the release time and a specific mode like "Hard Clipper", "Aggressive", or "Balanced."

The "EQ116" in Samplitude 11 provides a 6-band equalizer that works with either oversampling or phase-linear algorithms. Filters on up to six freely selectable frequency bands may be activated to adjust the sound of the sample or of an object. This also enables broadband elevations in high and bass values as well as narrowband corrections to the frequency response to be carried out. Three different filter setups may also be selected to make settings directly during monitoring, without loading or saving complete presets.
