reViSiT description
User Interface- reViSiT inherits and extends the fast and powerful interface of Impulse Tracker 2 - allowing everything to be done with but few strokes of the PC keyboard, but adding an enlarged and graphical interface with intuitive and flexible mouse support.

VST Host Playback Sync- Like all trackers, reViSiT is able to playback by itself. However, because reViSiT is coded as a VST plug-in, it can receive time code from its host and thus synchronise is playback: use a sequencer's transport bar to start playback or move the sequencer's playback cursor to a specific bar or note and reViSiT will adapt automatically. reViSiT will also be able to adapt to time signature and tempo changes.

ASIO-optimised Audio Processing- As a VST plug-in, reViSiT assumes the audio quality of the host. So, if your host (e.g. Cubase) runs at 192kHZ, then so does reViSiT. Internal processing, however, is always processed at 32-bit - regardless of the host's output bit-depth. The net result is 64 (*32) tracks of exquisite low-latency audio quality.

VST Host DSP Processing- When the tracker is playing, the resultant audio is piped back to the VST host as an audio track. Once there, it can be processed by all the facilities affored by the host, including VST and DirectX plug-ins. Furthermore, .WAV rendering becomes a thing of the past - the host will automatically process reViSiT's output when ever the user mixes (or bounces) the audio down, using the host's own features.

Integrated Software Sampler- Sample-based synthesis is the lingua franca of trackers, and reViSiT is no exception. reViSiT features a 32-bit software sampler with editing, envelope (pitch, pan, volume and filter) and keymapping facilities.

Native and supported file formats- reViSiT's file format is a hybrid of XML, .WAV and .ZIP technologies to allow users and third-party developers to easily access and manipulate their songs and samples. The module is simply a standard .ZIP archive of the the pattern data (.XML) and sample files (.WAV), editable in a raft of external software. reViSiT v1.0 also supports many popular song and sample formats, including: Scream Tracker, Impulse Tracker, Fast Tracker, Protracker (and compatible) modules, samples and instruments; .WAV, .AIFF sample files, as well as support for AKAI and EMU patches.

MIDI In / Out- reViSiT exploits its VST host to provide sophisticated MIDI device support, for input and output (playback) - including control of other VSTi's that are active in the host. The MIDI In feature, coupled with the low-latency of ASIO sound systems will even allow users to use reViSiT as a live software sampler. reViSiT v1.0 exploits the MIDI specification to provide as expressive and accurate a playback as can be afforded - enabling many of the standard tracker effects, including pitch slides (and portamentos), volume slides and channel panning.

Surround Sound Support- The tracker notation format lends itself to spatialised sound much better than its sequencer and MIDI-based cousins. reViSiT v1.0 boasts a comprehensive surround sound implementation, including support for Dolby(TM) Surround, quadraphonic and 5.1 sound modes.

Intuitive and easily-accessible support systems- The full version of reViSiT will feature an advanced integrated support system, to service the needs of beginners and veterans alike. Critically, reference information (such as keyboard command and effect lists) will never be more than a keystroke or two away. However, for the learner, there will also be detailed help pages, interactive tutorials and dynamic hints and tips.
