Discover a work environment that suits you. Thanks to the innovative docking concept, Samplitude Pro X2 offers a completely customizable program interface. This allows you to drag, drop, reposition and resize not only toolbars, but also central software elements. This way you can adjust your workflows to exactly meet the needs of different production processes. Elastic Audio is an efficient pitch correction tool for audio material. Elastic allows you to not only modify the pitch from monophonic instruments and correct out of tune notes in vocal recordings, but also change entire melodies and adjust base frequencies. It is also possible to create harmonized voices. Thanks to object editing, you can target and edit individual words or syllables in a vocal recording. You can transfer these settings from the object level to all tracks which, for example, makes editing chorus recordings much easier.

This way you can combine the natural sound of a snare with electronic toms without affecting the original rhythm of the drummer. Native 64-bit support allows you to get the most out of your system resources, even when working with complicated compositions that make use of demanding VST plug-ins and an extensive sample library.
