I guess they're giving it away to increase the user base and hopefully better compete with the likes of Acid etc, by word of mouth.

I installed this last night on my junior PC first (sb pci 128) and it said it couldn't open the audio device, and wouldn't play. Which is wierd cause all my other stuff works.

Then I loaded it onto my music PC (1010lt) and it worked great. Certainly a strange beast, but looks like it's very gracious in letting you control whatever you want. I don't think I'll be parting with my n-track / fruity, but does look cool.

I'd use Tracktion over nTrack any day of the week.

Can you give me a few of the big differences that come to mind? I'm curious as to what would make you say it like that. Like, if there's things I can do in tracktion I can't in nt/fl.

(outside of the testing / developer issue you mentioned before)

Didn't say there was anything you can/can't do in either, I just think nTrack is a clumsy product. When I test drove it I also had a lot of bugs that the author of the app would never get back to me on. It was a bad experience.

I was wondering if that was it, I remember you explaining your testing of product and the problems you had.

It wasn't the problems I had (I am a developer, I understand bugs), it was when I asked him about them, or alerted him to them he never responded, after repeated attempts, when he KNEW I was reviewing the app for HRC, THAT is what got me. Mackie was wonderfully responsive when I was looking at Tracktion.

that's what I meant, the overall problems; a bug, getting with developer, no response, etc.

Looks cool, and free is even better. But I have so many dang apps now I think I will pass. But I do agree it is a great little app. all the reviews have been great.

I downloaded and played around a bit with it. It seems a lot like ACID to me, but with some added functionality. Pretty happy with CEP, so don't see myself using it, but it's cool they put it out there free.
