Synapse Audio has discontinued Orion. It is no longer available for sale or download. So stated in their Forum post of July 1, 2016.

Orion 8 is my favorite DAW, for me the best DAW.

Back in the day, Orion was going up against Ableton Live head to head and I was deciding on which host to choose and settled with Orion, because it was user friendly, yet professional for it's day. I also liked the classic style mixers and the large space for layout of VSTi's. And although a criticism of Orion by Computer Magazine was that you had to switch back and forth between the main view and piano roll, I liked it better that way because there was less clutter. The other main competitor back then was Fruity Loops, but I liked Orion's step sequencer better and that it had it's own built in Drum Rack. The other main competitor of course was Cubase, but I hated messing with MIDI. With Orion, you can load Kontakt for example and it will automatically set the MIDI parameters.

But sadly, Orion lies in the VST Host Museum of a bygone era. However, it still remains my main sequencer to this day. I use it alongside Cockos Reaper, which makes a great multi-track mixer. They really work well together.
