The installation is done it without problems?
<span style="font-style: normal;">yes, it is lightweight and easy to install</span>

Have you experienced any incompatibility?
<span style="font-style: normal;">normal under Windows. I tested this software on vacation because I did not have my mac station.</span>

Is the general configuration is easy?
<span style="font-style: normal;">Yes, but it is far from Core Audio. Windows has not yet found its unified audio architecture. Too bad for its users.</span>

Is the manual clear and sufficient? ...dropoff Window


What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
<span style="font-style: normal;">PC standard AMD Quad Core system, 4GB of RAM, dd 1to</span>

The software works he correctly on this configuration?
<span style="font-style: normal;">Yes it is fluid. Always these stories ASIO drivers, WDM, Direct Audio, etc ...
But with a good Asio4All, it hums</span>

What performance? (If measurable)
Very good on virtual instrumentals, not tested in pure audio.


It's a nice app, which allowed me to do some of his vacation while I was not home.
It does not compare with other sequencers that I could try. As it myself an absolute fan of Logic, I can only regret the approximate ergonomics and very "windowsienne" of this software. The windows open from everywhere, and are not visually uniform, choice of colors rather garish tire the eyes (though the app is skinnable), etc ...
Gloablement, I definitely recommend this software for a beginner just penniless. But the music, it is expensive, and you have to admit, the right tools are worth their price; this one is well worth a cubase light, but no more. And it has a side that cheap does not allow me to join 100%.

In addition, the audio engine is relatively whimsical at the summons of the tracks. No worries during the mixing, but the bounces are quite significantly different for it to become annoying (like Ableton Live for that matter ...)

Good thing the developers in any case, providing a much more efficient software qu'Ardour - remaining in the free / free / cheap - in terms of ergonomics and handling. The time should be given more weight and experience in the world of sequencers.

to closely monitor and recommend to all those who have little means or sea urchins in the pockets <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />
not recommended a pro, except perhaps for the taking, but I have not tried it, so ...

7/10, to encourage!
