Soundop is a professional audio editor for Windows to record, edit, and master audio and mix tracks in intuitive and flexible workspaces with advanced features. The audio file editor supports both waveform and spectral editing. The multitrack editor can mix an unlimited number of audio and bus tracks with a powerful engine that supports sends, side-chain, and automatic latency compensation. Track and clip both have FX rack and fully support automating of effect parameters. Soundop has well-designed built-in effects and supports VST and VST3 effect plug-ins, and supports parallel or mid-side effect groups to create composite effects. The audio engine supports ASIO, WASAPI, MME, and DirectSound driver and recording audio with 24-bit precision and up to 192 kHz. Soundop supports loading audio from all popular audio and video formats and exporting audio to major audio formats with metadata such as ID3 Tag, RIFF Chunk, Vorbis Comment, and ACID loop edited and saved across formats. The CD track editor supports burning audio to CD with customizable gaps and verification after burning. The processors support most audio editing operations, including copying, pasting, applying effects, and other processing tools like normalizing on selected channels and time ranges. The batch processor can process audio files with processors and save them to a target format. And you can run multiple instances of batch processors concurrently.

Soundop provides a comprehensive feature set at a small package size with optimized design. It will be your ideal tool for audio creation and production.
