Audio Design Desk v1.7 update
Audio Design Desk is constantly working hard to improve its software with new features so filmmakers and sound professionals can get the job done faster than ever.
The good news is, the latest Audio Design Desk v1.7 update now includes a new Spot Mode to drag and drop all the sounds in the library directly into your favorite DAW or video editing software. Version 1.7 also introduces transient detection for creating elements out of stems and advances on its DAWSync capabilities for controlling a DAW from Audio Design Desk and vice versa.
A new real-time Trigger Pad window even lets you “play in” sounds like footsteps, doors, explosions, and car noises for extra precision. Last but not least, Audio Design Desk has tight integration with Elgato Stream Deck controllers, so you can also use it to interact with the software.
