Regarding the website, login worked after password reset but only my T1 license was recognised and I am eligible for the upgrade, my T2, T3 License was not transferred. Demo download and installation worked, website is extremly slow and still feels to "fishy", i would't enter any payment data at the moment but I am sure they will get that sorted out.
so it is good news and and will tell it to friends that also were infected to tracktion by my recommendation long ago.
All the best to the Tracktion Team.

Does this mean that the original dev reclaimed it from Mackie?
yes that's what happened along with an ex mackie employee and a famous musician. A team of three, totally independent to Mackie,

Looks like the linplug stuff (CronoX etc.) doesn't ("sorry.. only works with Tracktion 3") - this makes me sad.
Several other of my plugins caused the vst scan to crash, including GPO (kontakt player), Play (Goliath), and a bunch of others (i may not have the latest versions, but they work fine in T3)
Presumably one may have to buy the upgrades individually from the relevant plugin supplier.
I hope Tracktion can give us some guidelines which plugins work, which need upgrading, etc.

I don't even know where I put that licence N° when I purchased T3 !
Go download the demo now.
edit : Not a good start, New Traktion site doesn't recognise my mackie account, ask a new password 30 mn ago, still no reply !
Finally registration was OK this morning and was able to download T4 demo
it seam's developper team react fast and hope T4 will soon be upgrade to new level.
What a pleasure to rediscover this soft after so many years.
No bugs after 30 mn trial on imac snow leopard.
Didn't find mackie final mix plug, which was wonderfull under T3.
Will purchase this week a new licence.
Long life to traktion

In time I outgrew T3 and now in my professional work I use Magix Sequoia. For classical work something like Sequoia has some specialised features that make the high cost worth it, IF you are earning you're living from it (which I am).
Still, I have kept my eye on T and I'm just so happy that the current team have applied the defibrillator. Immediately on trying the new demo I could recognize the way Tracktion with it's fast and simple method, invites me to experiment, and I KNOW that for sound design work this is once more my tool of choice. By comparison Sequoia which costs approximately 48x more than a T4 full license, inhibits these gambles off across the pastures (but in it's own complementary way makes other tasks so easy).
I just hooked up a hell multichannel surround vst rack in T4 with multiple hardware outputs that wouldn't even be possible in Sequoia, or if it did would crash or make your bounces 0dBFS noise.
I am having the same issue with corrupt or invalid license key as others, and I've found a small list of bugs I will post (if others haven't) once the dust settles. Still I'm happy to wait till I can authorise T4, Jules and co. have enough to do right now.
I hope everyone gives them a break on the forum banter, it's great that T is back, celebrations are in order.
