WAVEFORM PRO 12
In the broadest update in ten years, Tracktion Corporation dramatically expands the capabilities of Waveform 12. This huge refinement makes the DAW’s powerful features even more accessible, further improves workflow, and builds a solid foundation for exciting new additions in the coming years.
Waveform 12 brings huge improvements to both UI and Workflow, including an entirely new Smart Browser, additional Plugins and Effects, a cutting-edge Audio Engine, advanced MIDI features, Hardware Controller Support, and hundreds of updates throughout the software.
The UI welcomes the return of a customizable Color Editor offering bold new light and dark modes in its visual palette. The Actions and Properties panel have been unified to reclaim screen space and a dedicated Master Track has been added to both the Arrange and Mix windows
The new Browser has been designed for speed and agility giving direct, frictionless access to Plugins, Presets, Racks, Samples, Clips, Tracks, or All. Favorites can now be Tagged and Color Coded while Smart Lists allow Edit and Project items to be previewed and consolidated. Plus, the Browser can be used as the popup plugin selector with live text entry.
Waveform 12 includes a brand new BassOSC instrument, fifteen refreshed Audio Effects, six handy Utility Plugins, and a low latency Dual Guitar IR. The IR can be used to accurately simulate guitar and bass amplifier cabinets to aid live play, tracking, mixing, and more with content from the DAW.
MIDI Fold options make editing easier than ever before, and the new Event List Editor helps users to keep tabs on their work. The Drum Grid Mode offers a drum-centric alternative to the Piano Roll while deep Randomization options are on hand to humanize velocity, pitch, note start, and note length. Step Clips now have probability to breathe life into basic patterns whilst MIDI Strum injects instant movement and realism.
A completely re-worked audio engine dramatically boosts CPU performance, allowing for an array of new audio enhancements including powerful podcast and dialogue editing tools like Advanced Strip Silence. Dialog Editor Keoki Trask (Disney/Universal Studios) said: ‘As for the Remove Silence function, it's beautiful … I think it'll save me around 1.5 hours or so of studio time just today. Stellar!’
To further bolster its capabilities, Waveform 12 now includes the entire DAW Essentials Collection of 16 contemporary FX plugins.

The innovative grain pitch sequencer, MIDI / MPE, and live sampling capability open up further depths of performance and expression.
F.’em is one of the most powerful FM Synthesizers ever made, taking advantage of modern CPU resources to process its freely configurable 11-operator matrix. It’s a hybrid quad-timbral synthesizer that can function as an FM, VA, and Sample-based instrument, with the added bonus of a dual multimode filter, a complex effect section, and an incredibly flexible modulation matrix.
Hyperion synth has been designed from the outset with sonic flexibility in mind whilst keeping modular patching approachable and easy to follow. Efficient processing enables up to 10 layers of complex sound patches providing an unlimited sound design playground inspired by 80’s legends such as Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Brian Eno. Hyperion is a contemporary digital modular masterpiece.
A futuristic synth that gives you the power to splice waveforms into aggressive new sounds. The patented oscillator design utilizes a new form of synthesis to produce biting leads, glitched-out basses, cinematic pads, and everything in between.
The RetroMod series of instruments put the world’s most revered hardware synthesizers at your fingertips. And as the name suggests, this is more than just a collection of sample-based imitations – the goal of this series is to capture the soul of classic hardware synthesizers and push them in new directions, creating sounds simply unachievable from the source hardware.
Tracktion and Imagina Production Recording Studio have joined forces to create a massive construction kit of drum loops that can be used for a wide range of musical genres.

Each pack consists of 10 complete songs, including numerous intros, verses, fills, etc. Every part was recorded in 24-track through the finest equipment available, providing unprecedented construction kits for you to pick from.
