Value For Money : Excellent
Before we begin, I downloaded the demo: Version 2.1.0.6

I am looking for a good price software super intuitive to make music ... and not a huge expensive software to make computers applied to music.

I think with 2 Traktion approaching happiness.

- The installation is done it without problems? - Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

No worries

- The general configuration is easy?

No stress ... except that it is necessary to "quibble" with the ASIO driver of the sound card to be perfectly aligned with the software.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ... Perfectly clear and entirely in French (well translated) as the software for that matter. A more significant. I am an amateur musician ... and if I like computers, I also never ask me a question once I am dedicated to my hobby

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
P4 2.6Ghz / 512 MB Ram / 80Gb HDD / Hercules Aureon 5.1

No problems of incompatibility and / or ralentissments far with the software

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
One week
- What is so special that you like most and least?
The ingenuity of its graphical interface. It's simple and intuitive. Windows 36 not more or less well done. Each function is discussed, calibrated for use with a mouse, keyboard and screen. This is not an interface that "mimics" the analog equipment with varying degrees of brilliance ... but an interface that uses the pixel2 near the surface of the screen. EXAMPLE: The control that includes both the volume and panning of a track (on the vertical axis of the mouse-wheel-volume. On the horizontal axis - Shift + Wheel - pan) Clicking this control displays in the "properties" the parameter that can be quantified precisely capture. WAW! In Cubase or Cakewalk'll have to play with several panels to open or close (or ask your banker a second screen 21pouce)
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Yes! Cakewalk, Logic Audio, Cubase! Cakewalk I like well enough as relatively intuitive and calibrated for the musician. Cubase .. Pfffffffffff! Too complex for me ... Jamma I managed to adjust the latency (close to 1 sec!) With Cubase SX ... so there is a menu setting and everything ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Excellent! I'm not an expert in sequencer. But for those who want to make music without taking the lead ... I have not seen as better software. A piece of M. .. with an excellent ... it will always be a piece of M. .. While a beautiful song with a mediocre sound can always be improved ...

computer music I started with an old PC and an ultra-simple software MIDI only. Ok, I could not do anything with it ... but once I had an idea. HOP I recorded the stuff in a file as light as a email.

Now, with the ability to mix audio and MIDI, well it opens interesting new perspectives.

I still have to try syncing from my digital recorder BR-532 (only four tracks and little opportunity for mixing and editing once "in the box ")... which I use as a "recording station." Then I import the files to. Traktion 2 WAV ... I will do my little mix before the "cut" in MP3 for the email to my friends musicos

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I will very soon buy the license ... and talk about me ...

Try! Forget the "old" analog interfaces (one button - one function) and their translations for virtual dive into a real revolution in the economy of windows, pop-ups and other endless menus.

For comparison: the interfaces of other software that copies + / - a real system. It's like in Word, we had a nice drawing of a handle to a new line of buttons and an image of an old typewriter that come alive when you write via the keyboard.

With Traktion is a step toward a new era between man and machine. Try ... unpeu is confusing ... but so much more sense.
