Ohm Force has announced version 1.0 of its Ohm Studio real-time collaborative digital audio workstation software for Windows and Mac.
Ohm Studio is the only pro-grade DAW that allows for online cloud-based collaboration – a technical challenge that explains why it took so long and why Ohm Studio is the only DAW to offer online collaboration to date.
As opposed to other DAWs that culturally promote the idea that one guy can do it all, Ohm Force understands that the music most people listen to is very rarely made by one person alone. In this age of the Internet, having access to a world of talented people to do instrument recording, arranging, producing will be brought back to the core experience of computer music making.
Collaborative features as well as a UI with a gentle learning curve and pro-grade audio performance complete the approach that sums up Ohm Studio.
Ohm Studio is both a software and a service. You can go for free offers for both, or buy both, or any combination of the two.
Ohm Studio pricing

Switch between clip- or track-based note editing, bring more life into your composition using note expressions and and per-note micro-pitch control, or use the histogram-based inspector function on several notes at once to randomize or spread parameter variances, changing the feel of your instrument clips.

Background video description:
Do you find yourself exploding with creativity but unsure of how to get it out? Think you’d do a bang up job making beats that would be blowing up, if only you knew how to get started? Well we’ve got a dynamite new tutorial for you beginners called “Your First 10 Minutes in Reason.” Carlo Nuevo (M.Born) will take you from the first launch of Reason, through setup, and right up to mixing his first track complete with drums, synths, and vocals. It all happens in just 10 minutes and it’ll get you making music in no time. We think you’ll agree. This tutorial is da bomb.
Erik Hawkins (a.k.a. Erik Hawk) of Berklee Online shows you how easy it is to convert an audio loop into a REX loop directly in Reason 7. You no longer need ReCycle to author REX loops!
Erik Hawkins (a.k.a. Erik Hawk) of Berklee Online shows you how easy it is to set up sub mixes, using bus paths, in the Main Mixer of Reason 7.
Erik Hawkins (a.k.a. Erik Hawk) of Berklee Online shows you how easy it is to work with parallel channel effects in the Main Mixer of Reason 7, and how this type of processing can fatten up your tracks.
I’ve got to say, the new features in Reason 7 are killer! I’m having a whole lot of fun working with everything from the new Spectrum EQ Window, to the buses and parallel channels on the Main Mixer. And of course all the rocking Rack Extension devices, especially the Korg Polysix and Propellerhead PX7 instruments, and the Pef Buffre and FXPansion Etch Red Filter effects, and iZotope Ozone for mastering. Way too much fun and not enough time in a day to play with all these new shiny toys!
