The Go-Anywhere Studio

A cool aspect of the Composer is that it uses the awesome WebAudio API, which means you simply point your browser and the Composer is ready … just launch the Composer and start using it. The Composer is also responsive and progressive, which means you can pin it locally, just like a native app and use it online, offline and on a wide range of target platforms. Although it's a web app, the Composer uses local processing power and your audio remains local.

Unlike many online offerings, you can build your collection of projects, samples and patches within the drive of your choice ... just like any other desktop DAW. We even encode your projects into single files for convenience.
