Description [fr]

Un séquenceur, par le studio XT Software (Jorgen Aase).

Wikipedia :energyXT (actuellement dans sa version 2 sous le nom d'energyXT2) est un logiciel d'édition et de création sonore et musicale créé par le développeur Jorgen Aase (société XT Software).
Plus précisément, c'est un logiciel de MAO qui appartient à la famille des séquenceurs. Le format de fichier propre au logiciel porte l'extension ".xt".
La dernière version en date est compatible avec le standard VST, le protocole ASIO et le format REX2 de la société Propellerhead Software (uniquement sous Mac OS X et Microsoft Windows). Elle supporte également les fichiers WAV 16, 24 ou 32 bits en mono ou stéréo.
Dans sa version Linux, energyXT prend en charge les plugins VST natifs Linux, également développés par Jorgen Aase, et fonctionne avec le composant ALSA, bien qu'il soit aussi possible de le connecter au serveur JACK.

Interface graphique

L'interface graphique d'energyXT s'organise autour d'une barre de menu, d'une barre d'outils, d'une barre d'onglets, d'une fenêtre de navigation (Browser) et de la fenêtre principale qui affiche par défaut le séquenceur ("Sequencer") mais permet également d'afficher la partie "Mixer" ainsi que "Modular", via la barre d'onglets entièrement paramétrable.

XT Software is proud to release EnergyXT 2.0, a strong competitor to already established sequencer software.
At a very affordable price, EnergyXT 2.0 provides music producers with a complete solution for creating music out-of-the box on Windows and Linux.
The program can even be loaded as a VST-plugin into other VST compatible sequencers.

EnergyXT 2.0 has taken a brand new approach from it's early development version 1.0. The whole program has been re-coded from scratch to make it optimized for full-filling feature requests from the user base. Going from a modular-based sequencer to a more easy-to-use and commercial sequencer, XT Software see themselves competing with well established sequencers such as Cubase, Reason, Ableton Live and FruityLoops.

“With EnergyXT 2.0 we have taken our customers requests very seriously. The program is community-based, so we get feedback and suggestions from the users by the hour” says Jørgen Aase, the main developer behind EnergyXT 2.0. “Our main focus has been on making the best workflow possible for the users. EnergyXT 2.0 can be as advanced or easy as you want it to be. It got loads of features but is not hard to use”.

Among some of the new features in EnergyXT 2.0 is a synthesizer with sample support, high quality time-stretching and pitch-shifting, REX2 support, multi-fx, clip based automation and new loop format for saving clips with VST instruments. The synth have already been greatly received among artists for its unique warm and clean sound. Timestretch is essential for remixing and working with loops for todays producers, and EnergyXT's timestretch function is based upon the very same code as many other professional DAWs. EnergyXT 2.0 also support the essentials such as midi- and audio-editing, VST-plugins, ASIO and ALSA (Linux).

For those who already have invested in music sequencing software, EnergyXT 2.0 can be loaded as VST plugin, to overcome limitations and expand the feature set. All of
the functions in EnergyXT 2.0 can be used as a VST plugin. Need extra mixer channels? Want to use the integrated synth? Or want to chain VST instruments and effects in a VST rack, just load up EnergyXT 2.0.
