Soundop is a lightweight application that enables you to record audio samples or edit the ones that you already have and add them to the mix you are working on.
The setup is quick, uneventful and does not require any special attention from your part. The program comes with an outdated interface designed with mild tones of gray. Nevertheless, the UI is user-friendly and you are unlikely to encounter any issues while recording or mixing.
Upon launch, you come face to face with a welcome screen that displays the projects that you are working on. You will be glad to learn that the program allows you to create and customize several working spaces and switch between them with just one click. The option can be useful if you enjoy experimenting with your audio samples.
In addition to letting you customize your mixing space according to you preferences and equipment, the program enables you to create new audio files using the desired channels and samples rates. Then again, you should know that the sample rate options are between 16,000 and 48,000, whereas the channels available are stereo and mono.
The new file can be saved in various file formats, namely FLAC, OGG, PCM, RAW, WAV, MP1, MP2 and MP3. Moreover, you can add various FX rack effects, such as chorus, compressor, delay, echo, reverb, rich verb, phaser or limiter, just to name a few. In addition, you can adjust the volume, stretch, pitch and remove noise using advanced features.
In spite of the fact that it is not a looker, the utility includes several features that allow you record the audio samples you need for your next tracks. In case you are not fully satisfied, then you can enhance them using the vast array of editing and mixing effects.
