Tracktion Software Corporation (TSC) has released of Tracktion 5.3, an update to their multi-platform DAW.
Here’s what’s new in Tracktion 5.3:
- The Tracktion design team has streamlined user workflow and enhanced creativity by expanding the functionality of the program’s tools. The “comp tool” can now be used to merge MIDI clips and audio clips alike. In addition, multiple unrelated clips can be selected and turned into single files that can be rapidly edited, reversed and comped. These new capabilities are collectively known as “Super Comping.”
- Rendering has now become a creative tool as well. MIDI clips and notes can be converted to audio clips, like “Super Comping,” then manipulated as new audio clips. This speeds the editing process and provides flexibility when composing.
- Tracktion V5.3 also introduces a new Plug-in browser, located on the main (Edit) page sidebar. It’s now possible to tag, search and find Plug-ins with just a couple keystrokes. Plug-ins now simply drag & drop where needed directly from the browser.
- This version also significantly improves MIDI performance. It’s now possible to automate gestures and inflections on individual notes. A new multi-channel MIDI clip support and polyphonic aftertouch have also been added.
Tracktion is available for US $59.99.
