Mantis is the company's new Web-based DAW. Based on Mantis' predecessor, Session Console 2, Mantis features an elegant redesign and increases in speed, stability and usability. Recently unveiled to select users, Mantis has already been embraced by early adopters including D.I.Y. bedroom producers and respected pros, including reggae/hip-hop singer Matisyahu and Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.
Enabling CD-quality audio (16-bit/44.1k) recording directly to the Web, Mantis features non-destructive real-time effects including EQ, compression, flanger and reverb, and an expanding library of more than 10,000 Creative Commons–licensed clips. Mantis can be seamlessly integrated into Indaba Music's session and contest platforms.
While membership to Indaba Music and use of Mantis is free to all community members, Indaba Music also offers premium memberships that include access to an expanded clips library, advanced audio effects, cloud-based storage and private recording sessions. Pricing for "Pro" and "Platinum" packages is $5/month and $50/year and $25/month and $250/year, respectively.
