Sonoma ships RiffWorks
Sonoma Wire Works and IK Multimedia have shipped RiffWorks Standard, a guitar recording program that supports features such as podcasting and online jam sessions. When creating tracks, users have access to 24 layers plus backing tracks, including four tempo-synchronized InstantDrummer backups. Nine pre-recorded Drummer sessions are included out of the box, with more available to buy online. Seven stock audio effects include wah, reverb, and multiband compression and distortion. More can be added through plug-ins. Files, meanwhile, can be mixed down to WAV or Ogg Vorbis formats. The program is on sale online for $170.
