I started recording in 2020. After purchasing an audio interface, mic, and some monitors, I researched DAWs. Having spent years in broadcasting I was familiar with a lot of the concepts used in DAWs so I decided to try as many free products as I could find.
My first download was Audacity. When I found that I couldn't use third-party VSTs, that was the end of that. I downloaded and started playing with Reason and Studio One but finally decided to go with the leader, Pro Tools. It took me about two minutes to realize that I would never be happy with any Avid product. It did, however, give me a frame-of-reference.
There were other, lesser-known DAWs that I downloaded and tried. Finally, I downloaded the free version of Traction Waveform.
I immediately got a "good vibe" from the product.
It made sense to my brain. It was more intuitive than anything I had tried.
So I stuck with Waveform.
The longer I used it, the more features I discovered and the more I was able to do.
After about six months I purchased Waveform Pro and discovered a bunch of great virtual instruments. I love the fact that their "left-to-right" architecture is so simple and so efficient. No rack-wiring or convoluted set-up. As fast as you can re-arrange plug-ins, you can hear the changes.
I'm all in with Tracktion Waveform. I can't imagine an easier-to-use, more feature-packed, DAW.
Hi there! I wanna start a recording hobby, i bought mackie profx 8 mixer together with tracktion 3 basic bundles. im using windows 7 and the program was installed successfully, but the problem is when i'll start recording a track after I have imported an instrumental wav file (track 1), whenever I arm the track (track 2) where I will record my vocals, and then I'll press record, the instrumental on track 1 is also recorded in the track 2 where Im recording the vocals. Can anyone help me please? Thanks!
Many x64 plugs aren't supported on Tracktion x64, but their x32 versions work fine on Tracktion x32 -- Ignite's The Anvil and TSE's x50 come to my mind immediately. ISTR it's something about the plug devs fudging the spec a bit. Maybe it's this issue. To tell, go for an x32/x32 system -- if said plugs work, it's said bug rearing its ugly head. (Maybe heads; it's more hydra than dragon!)
Most of us either stick with x32, find alternate plugs or load the x32 plugs in a bridge. A lot of people seem to like jBridge, but its (admittedly miniscule) cost exceeds my means, so I wouldn't know.
ok, I have searched for an answer but I haven't found one so .... Using Waveform 9 in DEMO mode (want to try it out) and I am trying to find out why it is not loading any of my plugins. They are all in 64-bit (Maschine, Addictive Keys, NI Komplete 11 Selective, Positive Grid Bias Amp, Melodyne 4, Izotope (a stack of them) and more)., it sees them and says that they won't load. Any suggestions (besides I might be an idiot.... :-)) ????
Oh windows 10 64-bit, i5 (4 core 6th gen), 6 GB RAM. I have recently updated Maschine to Maschine 2 and have update all programs. It works fine in Tracktion 6 but .... ??
