From the Ohm Force newsletter:
In 2000, a bunch of music geeks gathered around their computers, only to find themselves guided by a strange and mysterious power — the power of Ohm Force. It revealed to them the essence of audio processing which they used to create the now mythical Ohm plug-ins.
But they had a secret goal! This secret and long term task was to venture beyond the plug-in world and explore the other dimension of sound creation: those humanoid artists that play with computers. Thus Ohm Force, by the sweat and steel of its humble, sandwich-peddling warriors, has been laboring to conceive a new type of music workstation — one that will bring real time creative harmony to the world.
Yes, you read that right: Ohm Force is announcing the first *real* collaborative music workstation in the history of music production: the Ohm Studio — a project with which they aspire to redefine the meaning of online music collaboration. Yay.
We’re talking about a fully fledged DAW/sequencer, Ohm Studio: a standalone real time collaborative music making application for Windows and Mac, in addition to a web based collaboration platform and music driven online Cohmunity. We’re also talking about real time collaborative MIDI/audio editing, envelopes, a piano roll, audio effects, and virtual instruments: the very same tools we computer based musicians already enjoy, but that you’ll now be able to use with your friends, online.
How is this possible? Using an audio core made from scratch, of course, an adaptive audio transfer protocol, a transactional document management engine, some Ohm-style interface innovation, an integrated web Cohmunity, server based projects and much more…
