Hi all, when I retire from telecoms in March, I will need to purchase a new laptop or PC when I hand in my works equipment. I am thinking of staying with Mac's for recording duties and I am also thinking of moving on from my G4 iMac/Mackie's Tracktion 3, to a more compatible/professional recording software.
Any suggestions on what DAW and software would suite someone who likes the simple presentation/functions of Tracktion, but needs more processing power/usable track-count/plug-in friendly package? Cheers, John
TRACKTION 4 is out now and in the hands of the Tracktion Software Corporation. It's back in the hands of it's original creators where it belongs. It has bugs, but they are being fixed. I never though this would ever happen, after years of neglect.
I was very surprised that both of the 21.5-inch models only have a 1TB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm, instead of the usual 7200 rpm drives. The only models that can have the 7200 rpm drives are the much bigger 27-inch models. I do not really need such a big screen, which will also require me to have another flight-case made.
The original versions of Tracktion required 7200 rpm drives to be able to track properly.
It's been a long time since any regular gigs, so they need to work on new set-lists and re-visit some old material.
Roland V-Drums + cymbals, 5x stereo keyboards, bass, guitar via stereo DI peddle-board and a female lead vocalist. All bar the drummer sing backing vocals.
This is an original Prog-Rock band, with all of the artists contributing to the song writing/arranging and I will probably be engineering their live sound and stage lighting like before, when they do future gigs.
