Hi folks, apologies if this has been announced elsewhere.
Older PC (and Mac)
DAW users may remember Tracktion, versions 1/2/3 of which received good reviews in SOS
from around 2004-2008, for its (then) innovative one-window DAW solution. Tracktion was
purchased by Mackie, but has not been developed by them for many years, much to the
disappointment of its loyal user base.
It has now been bought back by the
original developer and a couple of ex-Mackie staff, and is again under active development,
with the new V4 just released for W7/8 and OSX. To quote the Tracktion website:
"The Tracktion engine has been completely re-written such that it is now fully optimized
for the very latest operating systems – both Mac and PC – along with 64-bit
processing, WMA, AU and WASAPI support."
So no new 'Features' as such, but the
engine has been brough bang up to date. Features to follow....
More news here:
the KVR website/forum.
Excellent news! Tracktion's one-window interface has
'inspired' Presonus Studio One, which now has a considerable head-start on development,
but Tracktion was the original innovator, so we can hope for great things.
Very reasonable costs: new $59.95, upgrade (from V1, 2 or 3) $29.99
early days, they have only been up and running 2 months, so the website is patchy, but I'm
very happy to be patient!
