Tracktion Software Corporation has launched Tracktion Version 5 (T5), for Linux, Mac & Windows.
According to the developer, Tracktion 5 “combines an intuitive workflow with a ground-breaking feature set at a remarkable price”.
“Our intention from the start has been to enable rapid capture and manipulation of musical ideas,” says Julian Storer, Tracktion creator and co-founder of TSC. “To that end, Tracktion 5 eliminates barriers to the creative flow as it solves a number of problems that have long plagued the multi-track recording process.”
In Tracktion 5, the need to create sub-mixes in order to free-up resources for additional tracks is now eliminated by T5’s ‘Edit Clip’ format (right). This allows users to embed multi-track material as if it were a single audio clip, while allowing the source material to be edited. This makes complex song arrangement easier and improves the use of system resources.
To make the best possible use of your computer’s capabilities and achieve professional results without dedicated, external DSP, T5 introduces a full blown System Resource Manager and unique ‘Freeze Point’ technology. This gives the user precise control over which session elements should be automatically pre-rendered, so that they can reduce CPU load while retaining mixing/editing flexibility. The result is surprisingly low latency playback regardless of session size.
Tracktion 5 has hundreds of new features, including ARA integration for Celemony Software’s Melodyne, rapid audio comping, track presets and more.
Here’s a video preview of the Multiple Edits feature:
