Installation simple and clean: the software is an executable and does not bring disorder in the system folder. Significant.
In seconds, you're already working on your first loop. Friendly interface and easy to understand.
To take over the software more systematically, there are books available on the website http://www.brambos.com, including the Tao of You in French.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have an AMD Athlon 500 Mhz, 64 MB RAM with a Soundblaster Platinum sound card and it works well (that's how the software is not too greedy). That said, I remember having problems in the Song mode when the number of patterns and tracks used increased. I think the author has changed since those few bugs.
In addition, the registered version allows the use of Tuareg different plug-ins, especially VST effects. If the intention is laudable, the use is not always very stable (as is often the case with the VST). However, overall, it works well.

OVERALL OPINION

I use Tuareg recent years, mainly to work on loops then I export to other sequencing software (Cubase, Live).
I find the function VARIATOR, which cuts your loop into slices that you can reorder, astounding! I do not know other programs that do this. Just for this feature, Tuareg is really great. Only caveat, the Song mode.
I bought the full version ($ 35) and it's worth it. Besides the fact that there are some add-ins and more, it's cool to support a developer who did a good job. Also, whenever I had questions or problems, I confronted him and each time I answered.
An excellent software for beginners as well as for more experienced musicians.
