Audio Editing - ultra fast, easy and powerful.

The audio editor is a vital tool in any radio broadcast facility. We are, therefore, proud to present a software solution which is tailor-made to radio production, and shines with outstanding features and innovative solutions. The name of the software? EDIT. And its major benefit? Optimised workflows, which deliver faster user performance.


Intuitive and efficient.
The editorial staff is always in a hurry., no time to use up much time for tools: Stories have to be developed and at the same time have to comply to highest quality standards. The EDIT software is optimized for such everyday situations. From sound editing  to creating complex feature programs. EDIT provides just the right tools for all requirements. EDIT adapts perfectly to your workflow and integrates seamlessly into your broadcaster's database infrastructure.

EDIT is specially geared to the needs of radio broadcast production, and is characterised by its intuitive design. The interfaces are clearly laid out and divided into different work areas which are perfectly harmonised with the individual operation modes. This is the objective of EDIT: to provide ingenious solutions in order to guarantee clever, efficient working.

Well thought-out details.
Colour-coded clips, simple pre-listening of cuts, the use of automated functions and intelligent archiving functions - these are the small details which noticeably ease a journalist's everyday work. As productions demand ever more flexibility and multi-tasking capabilities, the technology must be in a position to provide this: with carefully thought-out functions, enabling faster working and easy-to-understand workflows in hectic situations.

Smart interfaces and powerful functions.

Its recording mode makes the Lawo Editor the perfect recording tool, such as for spoken word applications. The text can be entered simultaneously in the recording box, with an additional option of the first and last words displayed in the reporter box - very handy for mixing and cutting later on. In addition, you can also decide how to save the clip - e.g. as a pure audio file or with embedded text, so that the text is stored with the audio track. For maximum operating comfort, EDIT also provides a clip list, in which the different takes can be identified by different colour-coding which makes distinguishing and retrieving easy.

Single Track Editing:
Easy editing: Completely professional technology running in the background,with comfort provided by a consumer-style user interface - that is the greatest plus provided by the Lawo Editor. Specifically, this means: drag & drop operation, the easy mark-up of selected takes, a useful pre-listen function as well as clear timeline. From an interview in the Single Track Editor right through to transmission: EDIT provides exactly what is needed for fast-paced cutting of audio recordings. Simple and to-the-point.

Multi Track Editing:
Advanced editing: Enhance the audio recording with music, insert atmosphere in the background or intercut multiple audio tracks - you can do all of this with the Multi Track Editor which provides a sensible complement to the Single Track Editor, particularly for more complex challenges. And what if the feature is ready, but unfortunately still five seconds too short? This is where the integrated time-stretch function comes in, ensuring that you can save your feature to the right length without too much trouble.

High-quality signal processing:
A further plus point: the DSP algorithms, already known from the Lawo mc² series, are included in the Lawo Editor - e.g. the equalizer, compressors, limiter and AGC (Automatic Gain Control) of the highest quality. This enables almost any kind of signal processing without complicated operation.

Reporter box:
The reporter box is like a box set, as you can use this tool to construct a feature from already existing clips and takes which are yet to be recorded. In addition, you can also input your text directly into the project and drag existing clips from the righthand pane into the main window - it really is as simple as that.

Loudness metering:
A new standard for measuring audio signals is becoming increasingly popular: Loudness metering in accordance with ITU-R BS.1770. Using this standard eliminates loudness fluctuations, for example, between features and commercial breaks. And wouldn't it be good to work with the correct loudness during production? The Lawo Editor's loudness feature allows you to display loudness in real time and as well analyse archive material. Loudness metering not only complies with international standards, but also with the needs of your users - thanks to clear visualizations and intuitive operation.
