If you're working as a music producer, you probably understand the importance of having the right tools whenever you need them, as they can highly simplify your work.
Radium is one of the software solutions that can help you create and manage music projects by providing you with everything you need.
First of all, this application doesn't need to be installed on the target computer, as simply extracting the contents of its archive and launching the executable grants you full access to its controls. However, note that you need to start the JACK Audio Connection Kit service before you launch Radium.
More so, the application won't tamper with your Windows registry entries, nor will it create additional files or folders on your computer without your explicit permission.
The program greets you with a comprehensive interface that packs a broad range of functions, which are neatly organized in its various menus. Unlike many trackers, the effects and note positions are edited graphically, which greatly simplifies the process and saves you precious time.
Granted, a novice can find the interface a tad confusing at first, as there are a few elements that might feel counter-intuitive, but if you tamper with its controls for a while, it can get familiar pretty quickly.
This application provides you with a broad range of features that can greatly enhance your music production projects. For instance, you can use a piano roll, velocity, pitch, effect and tempo automation, MIDI sequencing, multitrack hard disk recording, global swing and swing-per-track, modular mixers strips, multiple zooming types, scripting (you can choose between Scheme and Python) and multicore support.
A bunch of demo projects are also available if you want to test the capabilities of the program without generating a new project from scratch or risk breaking something in your current projects. They can be accessed from the "Project" menu.
All in all, if you're looking for a music editor that can help you create and manage complex music projects, Radium might be exactly what you need. It comes with a neat interface, doesn't need to be installed and packs a whole lot of useful features.
