Internet Co. , Ltd. released a new version of ABILITY , a domestic DAW, on May 27th. This is the successor to the previous ABILITY 3.0 Pro and ABILITY 3.0 Elements, ABILITY 4.0 Pro and ABILITY 4.0 Elements . While there are many overseas DAWs such as the United States and Germany, this is the latest version of ABILITY from Internet, which has developed two lineups: the entry version of Singer Song Writer Lite and the higher version of ABILITY.
The main feature of this time is the 16-part GM2 compatible multi-timbral sound source AMS , developed in-house by Internet . To put it simply, it’s an evolved version of the nostalgic Roland SC-88 Pro , or an ultra-high-quality version. You can create a new song with the very latest sound, or you can use it to pull out the data you made a long time ago and play it. On the other hand, various enhancements have been made, such as installing a note expression editor in anticipation of MIDI 2.0 compatibility, enhancing the song editor, and making the UI easier to use. I tried the ABILITY 4.0 Pro early, so I would like to report it.
ABILITY, which was born in 2014 as an advanced version of Singer Song Writer, has been upgraded to 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, and now 4.0 is on sale. As before, the high-end flagship model is ABILITY 4.0 Pro, and the popular version is ABILITY 4.0 Elements. There are differences in plug-ins that are supported. The differences from the entry version Singer Song Writer Lite 10, etc. are described in detail on Internet’s website, so I recommend checking it out.
Now, the main feature of ABILITY 4.0 is AMS, a sound source that Internet has been developing for many years. This is a GM2 compatible multitimbral tone generator. Nowadays, it’s normal to be able to handle a large number of MIDI tracks and instrument tracks, so I think the number of cases where a single sound source can play multiple MIDI channels independently is decreasing. However, multi-timbral tone generators are an important item when it comes to making music by making full use of the goodness of MIDI.
