Behringer has announced it has formed a strategic alliance with XT Software to bundle their energyXT
digital audio workstation with selected Behringer products.
XT Software is a growing multimedia company delivering true community-based music software. Founded in 2006, the company has a thriving community, which allows users to share music, skins and samples, and a forum where the users discuss creative work and opinions. The main product of the company is the music production sequencer energyXT2. The company is based in the Oslo Innovation Center (Forskningsparken) in Norway.
XT Software CEO, Jorgen Aase, told us, â€œWe, at XT Software, are very excited about our partnership with Behringer. By bundling energyXT2 with Behringer products, we will bring a new level of product awareness to hardware-savvy musicians around the globe.â€�
Behringer say that XT Software's version of energyXT2 for Behringer products, called energyXT2 Compact Edition, is unique among DAWs as it loads in under two seconds and is not locked to a single computer. They tell us that the energyXTC program is tightly coded (2 MB), runs on all operating systems and can be transferred between computers via any mobile media. A complete DAW solution, energyXT2 provides simple drag-â€˜n-drop manipulation of MIDI and audio sequences.
Behringer chairman, Uli Behringer , had this to say, â€œenergyXT2 Compact Edition is the perfect complement to our growing line of recording products. XT Software has created a superb DAW platform that adds significant value to our recording line. With their emphasis on customer satisfaction, XT Software is an ideal partner for us, since we at BEHRINGER always put the customer first. This is an instance where the end-user will reap the benefits of our combined efforts.â€�

The software bundle is expected to ship with various Behringer products in mid to late March 2008.
