AudioBox for Windows Mobile Publisher's description
AudioBox is an all in one virtual recording studio and sound creation tool for your Pocket PC.
AudioBox is an all in one virtual recording studio and sound creation tool for your Pocket PC. Create your own musical compositions without the need for additional software or dedicated hardware. Inspiration doesnвЂ™t always strike whilst sat at your PC, so if youвЂ™re a budding musician looking for a quick way to lay down your ideas or want to create complete compositions then this is the only package you need.
The Pocket PC alone does not have the ability to play standard MIDI files. This is because it lacks the necessary hardware support in the form of Wavetable synthesis necessary to achieve this. This means that at best you are limited to playing simple WAV and MP3 files. Smartphone and Pocket PC magazine Best Software Awards NomineeAudioBox solves this problem by allowing you to create your own virtual instruments which are fully configurable. AudioBox allows you to emulate the sound of classic analog synthesisers which became widespread in the 80вЂ™s and are still at the heart of modern music today. Customise the sounds to match your style of music or use the presets, itвЂ™s up to you! AudioBox also comprises a digital sampler, a dedicated string pad synthesizer and a drum machine allowing you to create your own customised drum kits and instrument sounds.
Of course having the ability to generate sound isnвЂ™t everythingвЂ¦ AudioBox is a complete music composition package with both track and score editing. The interface is simple to use, and yet provides a comprehensive range of features.
Audio Box allows you to create up to separate 16 tracks, each track assigned itвЂ™s own instrument. An integrated mixing desk allows you to control the overall mix as well as assign multiple effects to each channel. The real time effects include digital delay, reverb, chorus, phaser, low / high pass filters and more.
AudioBox also features the ability to automate instruments, effects and mixer settings using custom controller messages sent from the sequencer. Quite simply this allows you to control settings such as mixer pan and fader settings by simply drawing on a controller graph. During playback these settings are relayed to the mixer in real time.
Audio Box has the ability to work in high quality 44Khz mode or 22Khz mode for some slower models of Pocket PC. The polyphony and number of effects are only limited by the speed of your Pocket PC, so there is nothing to hold you back!
