You can now embed a legitimate audio workstation directly on your website

    Digital audio workstations (DAWs) are often power hungry, so it was already quite a problem when Soundation managed to fit most of the required features into a handy web app. But now the company has refined the code so that anyone can embed a fully functional music recording station right on their website.

    For the uninitiated, the vast majority of modern music-making takes place here. These software suites integrate with a variety of hardware and include standard timeline-based recording features. open these features to any person or company with an active website. All you need to do is copy and paste a piece of code and the software will do the rest. Note that you can put an empty DAW on your website, waiting to be filled with music, or a DAW that already contains audio content.

    What are the use cases here? You can drop in a fresh and empty DAW, waiting for visitors to add sounds and effects. This is the ideal scenario for collaborative classes and the like. Remember, a DAW contains all the tools you need to record audio, edit audio, drag and drop MIDI midi, and add effects.

    Things get more interesting when you consider DAWs pre-loaded with musical content, which could lead to a user-friendly way to remix pre-existing songs. All the artist has to do is embed a preloaded DAW on their site and let fans work their magic. This technology also allows customers to “try before they buy” when it comes to sample packs and standalone beats. You can rearrange the samples on the fly and really get into the details, rather than just listening to demo clips.

    Embedding allows you to change the DAW’s visual attributes, including the thumbnail, aspect ratio, colors, and more. So your particular DAW should look completely different from the beatmaker next door, leading to unique remix contests organized by music markets and teachers using different DAW templates for each class.

    The technology is available to try now, but it does require a Soundation subscription that starts at $5 a month. However, subscribing also gives you access to and other benefits.
