Combined and grouped into different types of audio manipulation, sonicWORX combines traditional digital signal processing with new manipulation possibilities to give you utmost control over your audio recording. It offers all DSP functions you expect from a standard signal processing software as well as many new functions you never thought possible at the time performed completely in the digital domain. What's more, sonicWORX' flexible plug in concept makes it easily expandable growing as your needs require.
