Anyone use it? It's really cheap at MF (4.99) http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Mackie-Tracktion-3-Project-Bundle?sku=701816 and seems more powerful than garageband which is what I've been using.

Any input?

It's good, but dude just get fucking REAPER.

http://www.cockos.com/reaper



I used Tracktion 2 for live tracking bands on a Macking 16.4 firewire mixer. I didn't like it.

I'm not sure it would be a worthwhile upgrade from Garage Band, personally. It is only 4.99, though.

reaper starts as a totally unrestricted trial, you decide when/if you want to pay for a license. your license is good till the next major upgrade. it's awesome as hell.
if more people would try reaper there would be less discussion about these other shit programs.


$40 if you just use it personally / $150 if you use it commercially - fucking CHEAP


The trial NEVER EXPIRES so you can use it as long as you want.

Quote:

Download the full, uncrippled, unexpiring evaluation version of REAPER, and give it a test drive. If it suits you, you'll need a license.

Tracktion ships free with Mackie firewire hardware, so I think it's just shit they put together so they didn't have to license copies of Cubase trials etc... hence why it might be $4.99
