The old version (last updated on
December 9th, 2013) of the popular Tracktion digital
audio workstation is now released as freeware for
all interested users.
Tracktion 4 was normally priced at
$59.95, however in April 2013 it was offered as a
free music making program for all Behringer
customers (here’s our coverage of that promotion).
Now Tracktion 4 is being released as a free tool for
anyone interested, potentially earning the title of
the best free DAW at the moment. Granted, this is an
older version of the software (the most current
version is Tracktion 6) but it’s packed with
features and incredibly powerful for a free music
making application. I’ll have to spend some time
with it first and check if it’s really better that
Podium Free which is (or at least was up to this
point) the best freeware digital audio workstation.
