Without a doubt this is the most obtuse DAW I have ever come across - I have demoed it several times in the past, spoke to the developer, been on the forums, watched the videos - a most un-intuitive experience.
:-) What an unjustified miss advertizing comment!!! lol..According to your slightly dubious valuation (in relation to its seriousness), it seems obvious, that your words are coming from someone who advertizes for commercial selling products, which have massive limitations on their "free" Demoversions. Zynewave however is 100% REAL Freeware, with no considerable freeware limitations in comparision to other "half-free DAW's". Your sentence "try before you buy" shows that you know nothing about Podium Free, furthermore, it shows, that your experience, you have made with this product, is = zero. The only reason why this excellent Freeby-product receives some unwarranted miss-Advertising apparently, is, because there are people around, that are trying to lure enthusiastic zynewave users away from one of the most popular freeware DAW's around the web, to their own commercial products, so that they can earn more money. - HOW UNFAIR IS THAT? - (Therefore probably the incorrect interpretation rumors) Well, just face it, although anyone has different perceptions on which DAW's are great or not, the nowadays still existing popularity of Podium free is fact! :-) Denying this fact, appears unjustifiably. No one ever said, that popular "REAL 100% freeware" DAW's like Podium and Mulab can compete with the best commercial DAW's out there.
