Embed a professional audio workstation directly onto your website

Soundation has managed to do something pretty impressive with its web app – fit most of the required features of digital audio workstations (DAWs) into it. But now, the company has taken things a step further by refining the code so that anyone can embed a fully-functional music recording station on their website.

For those who are new to the world of DAWs, they are where most modern music-making takes place. These software suites integrate with all kinds of hardware and feature standard timeline-based recording functions. Soundation’s new tools open up these features to any person or company with an active website. All you have to do is copy and paste a bit of code, and the software does the rest. You can even place an empty DAW on your website, just waiting to be filled with music, or a DAW that already features audio content.

The potential uses of this technology are many. You can embed a fresh and empty DAW on your site, just waiting for visitors to add sounds and effects. This is perfect for collaborative classes and similar situations. A DAW features all the tools needed to record audio, edit audio, drag and drop MIDI, and add effects.



Things get even more interesting when you consider pre-loaded DAWs with musical content. This 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 will also allow 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 nitty-gritty, instead of just listening to demo clips.

And if you want to customize the visual features of the DAW, including the thumbnail, aspect ratio, colors, and more, embedding allows you to do just that. So your specific DAW should look completely different from the one next door, leading to unique remix competitions hosted by music marketplaces and teachers using different DAW templates for each class.

The technology is available now to try, but you’ll need a Soundation subscription, starting at $5 per month. However, subscribing also gets you access to real-time collaboration tools and other perks.
