n-Track Studio is an audio and MIDI multitrack recorder that turns your computer into a full-fledged recording studio. You can record and playback a virtually unlimited number of audio and MIDI tracks. The program supports simultaneous recording from multiple 16-bit and 24-bit soundcards, and real-time audio effects can be applied non-destructively to each track. Built-in effects include Reverb, Multiband Compression, Chorus, Delay, Pitch Shift, Graphic and Parametric EQ, and spectrum analyzer. The program can use third party VST plug-ins to process audio signals in real-time. Effects can also be used to process the recorded signal in real-time. MIDI tracks can be imported end exported to regular MIDI files, and edited using the built in piano-roll based MIDI editing window. The program supports VSTi instrument plug-ins for sample accurate software MIDI playback. Volume and pan evolution can be programmed by drawing on the timeline window.
