Tracktion is a radical new audio/midi workstation - giving you a clean, intuitive, and clutter-free interface without losing the features you find in software costing much more.

If you like your sequencer to use dozens of overlapping windows, Tracktion is not for you. It won't pretend to be a mixing desk or show you panels with pictures of screws in the corners or 3D knobs that are accurately copied from a real piece of hardware. It doesn't use concepts like 'busses' or 'sends' that were developed for analogue mixing desks. There is no windows clutter, nor obscure menus full of commands that you'll never use. It doesn't come in a more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later

This entry is very very old. Tracktion 5 is out and doing very very well, to be honest :)

I just have to weigh in because the comments here are a little on the negative side, even though I don't think anyone hated it I wouldn't want anyone t get the wrong idea.

There is nothing else to compare to Tracktion for the price. It's not totally a "Pro" app but it's pretty darn useful.
I am a recording engineer for a living and I love it. I use Pro Tools daily for my work but for my own stuff (mostly on the notebook) I use Tracktion even though I have Pro Tools, Live 4 and Logic Express (as well as many others) on here to choose from.

It's not perfect, but if you are looking for something simple, cheap, and really easy to learn and use, this is what you want. It rarely crashes on me, if it's crashing a lot I'd bet it's a bad VST plugin. Some of those can be flaky.

It's worth the price, but only because it is now free. I can't think of any application that crashes so consistently on OS X. Every once in a while I may have an application crash, but tracktion does it very consistently.
I may be spoiled by Pro Tools or Digital Performer, but even mediocre applications behave better than tracktion.
Now that it is free, I just hope that they at least fix some of the bugs. If not, I suppose that's fine too.
On the other hand, I encourage people to try it out. It may work for others. I'm using OS X 10.3.6 with 1 GB memory.

This is impressive ! I like the single view workstation approach. First impressions are really important and this passed the test. The big drawback for me though is VST plugin support only. As I already have DP4 and GarageMusic, if the developers add audio unit support I'll buy this too. But if I can't use my AUs it's not worth the effort.
