Serato Studio 1.2 brings sidechain compression, scene page looping, exporting drum stems and much more - your beats will flow like never before. Serato Studio 1.2 will excel you to the next level, planting another foot on the purple brick road that is your beat making journey with Serato.
All your layers sounding as one - sidechain compression allows you to assign specific instrument or sample layers to another instrument of your song, bringing flow and movement to your song that you weren’t able to achieve in Serato Studio previously. For example, sidechain your bassline to your kick drum to maintain the intensity of the kick punching through, without turning down the bass layer overall and sacrificing the low end of your track on the whole. Sidechain compression is how you get the waving, tremolo effect, used a lot throughout the early music from Flume.
Ability to loop a scene page:
You now have the ability to loop individual scene pages. Instead of having to repeatedly click stop/play, you can loop your scene and let it run until it’s sounding how you want it to. Don’t worry about the pesky mechanics - focus on creating the best sound you can.
Export drum deck pad stems:
You are now able to craft your drum beat in Serato Studio, and then export it as audio. This can be done for individual components of the beat, such as the kick or snare, or all layers overall. This allows you to bring the stem back into Serato Studio as an audio file, allowing you to manipulate it to your liking to get it sounding just right in the mix. Alternatively, you can export the drums you’ve created in Serato Studio and continue working on it in another third-party application.
Mute/solo per drum deck pad:
You now have the ability to mute and solo individual drum deck pads. Sometimes you need to mute the rest of your layers to ensure the nuances and inflictions in your drums are cutting through the way that you want them to. You can now listen to your drum decks on their own, giving you the opportunity to get everything perfect.
Reorder decks in the scene player:
The early stages of assembling ideas into a song can lack some structure - that’s one of the best parts about. However, as your ideas start to develop and take shape, a definite order of layers and instruments begins to reveal itself. In Serato Studio, you can now reorder the decks in your scene player so it makes the most sense to you.
