As previously mentioned, today’s update includes a fresh new surround track, “Blue Stratitude.” From the in-app track description:
“This gritty blues jam provides a great exercise for producing a surround sound music track that places the listener smack-dab in the middle of a famous Amsterdam music venue.”
You can find “Blue Stratitude,” along with additional production notes for the track, in the ‘Latest Surround Clips’ section on ‘The Lab’ page in the app. (Just to be clear, this new track is included free with the app. No in-app purchase is required!)
