The internet is a perfect place for people to discover new things and demonstrate their talent and a wonderful way to spread the word that Microsoft Excel can (also) operate as a Digital Audio Workspace.

The content producer built on his previous project with a working DAW that can export .als files that are compatible with Ableton Live.

To showcase his creation’s capabilities, Tallchief took on a-ha’s “Take On Me,” as he goes on in depth about how the program works and breaks down useful shortcuts for those who’d like to try their hand at xlStudio. Watch the video below and download xlStudio here.
