Agoura Hills, CA—August 29, 2006— Line 6, Inc., inventors of digital modeling guitars, basses, and amps, and Sonoma Wire Works™, developers of RiffWorks™, announced the latest version of their award-winning guitar recording software, RiffWorks Line 6 Edition Version 2. RiffWorks is available as a standalone software recording application for Line 6® USB enabled devices, and as part of the GuitarPort® RiffTracker™ hardware/software bundle. RiffWorks Version 2 is available for Mac® OS X Universal, as well as, Windows® XP and includes RiffLink online collaboration for 60 days and RiffCaster instant podcasting technology.
Designed for guitarists, RiffWorks makes recording easy and fun. RiffWorks users can set the tempo and start recording simply by strumming their guitar. Seven real-time effects help create just the right mix, and the included InstantDrummer™ offers authentic drummer back-up recordings and the ability to dial in the right amount of intensity and variation without typical tedious drum-machine programming. Eight InstantDrummer sessions are included and 46 more are available from http://www.sonomawireworks.com/store.
With integrated RiffLink technology, RiffWorks users will be able to jam together online with no technical challenges regardless of their platform (Windows® XP or Mac® OS X). RiffLink collaboration will allow multiple users to record and mix in a shared session in real-time or when they have time. After the 60-day free trial, for a nominal subscription fee, users can continue to enjoy all the robust features of RiffLink online collaboration.
RiffWorks Version 2 will offer oneclick podcasting and webcasting. RiffCaster broadcasting service allows instant publishing via podcasts and webcasts at the press of a button -- all with embedded Creative Commons licensing. “We’ve heard several killer songs produced by RiffWorks users who say it’s their first time ever recording. Many musicians post their first song on RiffCaster the same night they install RiffWorks,” says Doug Wright, President of Sonoma Wire Works. “And now with RiffLink they can collaborate with friends, too!”
