Portable Serato Studio 1.4.5 (x64)
Serato Studio Portable is a brand new Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) that has been developed for people who come from a DJing background. It captures the essence of Serato’s DJing software and makes it perfect for any DJ who wants to get into music production. Serato Studio has a very beginner friendly work environment for new producers and for more advanced producers it’s a great tool to get your idea’s out really quick.
At first glance, Serato Studio Portable works like any other DAW, but once you start experimenting and producing tracks you understand how different it is. Master Key is one of its features that really stood out to me, once you set the key for the project, every instrument, sample, and drum you play will automatically be in the key. This is a very helpful feature if you’re just starting out and don’t understand music theory. If you’re a more advanced user you can turn off the “Play in Key” feature if you know what you’re doing.
Both the Drum and Note Sequencers are another feature that made the workflow very easy and enjoyable. With the 808-style step Drum Sequencer, you can easily create unique drum patterns with the built-in drum kits or even your own drum samples. When it’s time to add an Instrument to your song, the Note Sequencer allows you to either draw in or record your own chord progressions or melodies to your track. Serato Studio is also compatible with VST and AU as well. So if you prefer making sounds with your favorite VST plug-ins, you’re in luck.
Scenes and Song View are a feature that allows you to organize your drums, samples, and instruments with ease. You can also copy Scenes and edit/add anything that was on the previous Scene, this makes the workflow streamlined and easier than ever to build a track.
