If you’ve always wanted to make your own music, but never had the money for the expensive equipment and software, renting studios or hiring other musicians, you’re going to love this. Making your own music is no longer an unfulfilled desire with Audiotool, a powerful online music production studio, right there in your browser.
How Audiotool works
Audiotool’s modular structure allows devices to be freely added to the app’s desktop where cables can be manually dragged from input to output mirroring the workflow of early electronic musicians. This gives you full freedom regarding the routing, splitting or merging of the different synthesizers outputs.
No devices? No problem! Their cloud-based, community-fed library has over 250,000 samples and more than 50,000 device presets available through various device’s preset browsers.
