Magix has released Sequoia 14, the latest version of the software designed for big studio audio and broadcast engineers, which offers a host of new features relating to editing and hardware support.
For decades, Sequoia has been a popular choice for high-definition audio production, broadcasting and mastering, with a loyal following among international artists and broadcasters all over the world.
This latest version specifically focuses on strengthening the core areas of audio editing. The award-winning Celemony Melodyne software is now directly built into Sequoia via the ARA, and the plug-in is included in the essential version. Additional professional functions such as tempo automations, audio-to-MIDI and XYZ direct are now easily accessible to enhance workflow.
Sequoia 14 also now comes with SpectraLayers Pro 4, with its unique layer-based concept for working with frequencies. In international film studios, the spectral editing software has long been used for audio restoration and sound design.
For mixing and broadcast, Sequoia now delivers seamless and optimised integration of Sequoia and the Pro Tools | S6 Controller. The DAW and the high-end mixer from Avid work together using precisely calibrated EUCON protocols, allowing Sequoia to be controlled using the iOS app developed by Avid.
The updates follow Magix's acquisition of numerous Sony Creative Software lines, which also included Sound Forge and the Acid series. Sequoia 14 is the fourth audio release in the last six months following SpectraLayers Pro 4, the free version of Music Maker, and Sound Forge Pro Mac. Additional versions of Sound Forge are planned for later this year.
Sequoia 14 is priced at $2,975.
