MESSE05: Traktion V2 - Oodles of New Features
Traktion one screen solution

Since Mackie have teamed up with the original makers of Traktion, things have moved on a pace. For starters, the package was offered as a free download, and was taken up by "a very great deal of people" according to Mackie. What drew users in was not only the fact that it was free (always a bonus) but that it is good. Simplicity and power being the two major factors. Traktion gave you unlimited audio tracks with plug-in compatibility, MIDI sequencing plus many other great features. But the good news is that it's easy to learn and configure so even the technically bereft stand a good chance of making music within a couple of hours, and not several weeks that can be the case with many other packages. Even so, just take a look at the impressive list of new features:
  • Single screen interface
  • Enhanced MIDI editor
  • built-in sampler

  • External sync

  • MIDI controller mapping
  • Integrated Mackie control support
