After 15 days of dmo, I bought a 80 cl can continue to use this nice app. Problem-free installation, a running, a little bit of reflection to install even when small sound banks arranged about the link of the official website.
All this parat too good ...
ADQUATION / PERFORMANCE
My config: ibook G4 1GHz, 256MB RAM (for now), M-Audio Audiophile USB interface
and PC: duron 700, 512MB ram, SBLive of the era
And that is that if a gate! Indeed, on the PC, no major problem (without having too test on the pc). On the mac, mainly used on the other hand, noon laying srieux worries. All notes are registered with movement of pots of my Electribes, but reading is catastrophic: notes are forgotten by the way, are blocks ....
And if I bbranche M-Audio one point you have to restarting the computer to retrieve e / s noon in Tracktion
Audio and Rewire work, them very well.
However crashes when audio files are retouchs hot with Audacity, or when dplace files in a directory diffrent from that of creation.
That makes two short months I discovered this app. I was looking for an honest alternative to create at home, well, it's rat yet. Unable to squencer my rhythm boxes, synths ...
Meanwhile an update, I work in audio!
Trs simple setup, as used with Windows XP. By safeguarding against paramtres configuration does not work with Seven. I do not like it, I'm back on XP with no regrets ...
There's really no need for manual!
CPU: Quad Core QX 6700 EE 2.66 GHz,
ASUS P5K motherboard PL/1600,
4 GB of Ram,
Crucial SSD C 300,
WD hard drive audio / video.
Sound Card Echo Mia Midi & DX Edirol M16.
Tracktion version 3.04
RULES latency is at least 10 ms: no dcrochement or "noise" untimely, stability copy.
Used for many years, having started with version 1.6, that Mackie had about a time "Free".
I tried everything that exists, the only other software I could adopt is Energy XT, always for the same reasons of simplicity and immdiatet.
I love the interface, it allows immdiatet, stability and more it is not expensive. Everything is tudi to go fast.
What I like least is the "editor noon interface too small.
No problem to install Win XP, it is the DMO version, the config is very simple, it does not need the manual as long as you know dj the operation of at least one soft squenceur.
This is version 18.104.22.168
In terms of performance, I'm not all far as this is the dmo, I test two audio tracks plus two twelve o'clock plus some effects, either internal or ... nothing vsti report ... In fact there is everything you need, the quality seems average, however, to Premire ... but it's common, even with logociels more "professional" (institutional, say us) ...
note the existence of the function that freeze to alleviate the resource ...
cpu occupation, for this example, silent almost zero ... (win XP, P4 2.4, 512 MB)
So is the dmo ...
I t impressed with the ease of CASC. The interface is ergonomic trs, it was all on one screen, it's very practical and enjoyable trs. Ideal for beginners, flexible for someone more seasoned with soft sequencers.
Everything seems to work perfectly (I used my vst apps to test without problem: B4, M-tron, DR008, PSP Vintage Warmer).
Many options included, such as freeze (freeze a track and its effects in order to free resources), automation, VST and VSTi support, multi media card inputs / outputs etc. ... I did not even throw a look at the manual as everything is simple ...
For cons, I will put a note STRID, despite the low price of trs soft, so an excellent quality price (80 euros), as it lacks important features I think that stop my desire to direct the acqurir:
- No MIDI sync
- Management summary is twelve o'clock, trs not flexible to work with the vlocits, for example.
- No Drum Edit mode, only a piano roll
- No shipments to auxiliary effects, only inserts
- The limit, and that's all subjective of the same, no way "mixing desk" to the mix ... as everything is shuffled in the window ... but unique can of course make a mix like cell with less flexibility may be ...
In short, implementations with these options, I get the note and I'm 10 ... live as simple as a.
Dmo Version with audio examples ... 5 MB!
Scary and yet: The software installs without problem, it is almost full, but put a "hiss" to avoid rcurrent records. For DGIG, you pay online (80) and shoo it was a cl. Note that Tracktion uses cl PC on which it is installed, but it seems easier to ask a cl rab if we have 2 PC (no need to pay 2 times)
But strangely no incompatibility with my DMX 6Fire, I am not able latencies as low as Cubase (well, 192 hp. Instead of 128, I will not cry no more).
The manual is certainly clear, but I did not read, so the interface is intuitive (not to mention happily disable tooltips). In two hours, we know everything.
The audio engine is good, without being miraculous, but it offers about the results clean, and that's what counts.
The main intrt this app is its layout, ergonomics look back (no mixing desk, a single window, audio and midi ride on a same track (si!) ... ) And does it work? Ben. Yes!
Anyway, for me. It's beautiful, bright, spacious enough and smart at the CONTRL.
The lack of multi-monitor is feeling a little, but as can be dplacer the VST windows on other notches and lock, the problem is rsolu.
The VST seem to "suck" a little more about Tracktion as Cubase, but After all, we do with what we have, and freeze according trs intelligent help our poor computer has the burden of plug- ins.
This is my once a nice little product that Tracktion. I'll finish the tension all over this weekend, but I like it dj. It is a relief from gas plants which are the other programs, certainly more pro, but much more complicated and not much more complete as a function for, say, "moderate" Advances (groove templates etc. ..).
Finally, compare like with like all of the same, but I think that I'm going lcher for this little app (a license for a 80 squenceur audionumrique is no j a reason to buy it?) ds that some updates will l.
As in the Previous review, it is true that it lacks many things, but the software is update several times a month by its main coder (go and see the dates of the different versions, c ' is bluffing), Jules, who in addition is not without humor. if you go a little on the site http://www.kvr-vst.com, official forum, you meet, Do not hesitate and submit amliorations possible (but there are adj lot for which he is aware).
Here I would put nine well, because it is not just a software geek with an interface to hide his zarb Misra: it's new, clean, DIFFERENT, and good. But in addition it's cheap, so 10. Sonar 3 and less than or at least as well, it will be my next little squenceur. Pig ddit it.
