If you've never recorded audio into your computer, you'll be amazed at how quickly Mackie Tracktion 3 gets you going”creating real music within minutes. That's because unlike most other music production software”that is designed around analog mixer concepts and routing”Mackie Tracktion 3 is truly different. It uses a simple, single-screen interface for all basic recording and editing operations”with a property panel that follows your every move, providing pertinent information for the task at hand. Once tracks have been recorded, it's time to see if they cut the mustard. Thankfully, Tracktion 3 has some of the best mustard-cutting technology out there. That's because Mackie Tracktion software's editing power is as good as, or better than, software costing hundreds of dollars more”yet it retains Tracktion's hallmark ease of use.

As with most non-destructive editing software, Tracktion's editing allows you to undo and redo your edits to your heart's content”so there's never any fear of messing up your song. A new Marker Track displays all your markers in the edit. But Tracktion's markers are special in that you can treat them as clips, much like audio and MIDI. So you can move markers around, split, stretch, and edit them. Name and color them as needed to identify different sections of your song, and store and recall them using lightning-fast key commands. Mixing, of course, is the art of leveling, panning, EQing, adding effects, and otherwise accentuating individual sounds and instruments to get your song to sound just right.

Most audio software accomplishes this through the use of a dedicated 'mixer' screen, which mirrors the faders and knobs of a traditional analog mixer. Mackie Tracktion 3 software, however, has never had”or needed”a dedicated mixer screen, because its users are actually 'mixing' their songs throughout the recording process. This is really the genius of Tracktion, and one we'll explore a bit here. Once you've recorded and mixed your music, you'll want to master it to give it that polished, radio-ready sound.

Or you may want to send it to a trusted musician or producer friend for a second, or third, opinion. Thankfully, Mackie Tracktion 3 easily does both.

Tracktion's built-in archiving capabilities let you save and send your music project to other Tracktion users so they can listen, collaborate, and edit. Of course you can easily export from Tracktion to a variety of audio formats such as.wav,.aif, and.mp3 to share your tunes with those who are not yet part of the Tracktion Collective. And because Tracktion 3 comes bundled with Mackie's acclaimed Mixing and Mastering Tools, you can rest assured that the final music will rock as hard”or as soft”as you like. The 2011 Closeout Review I bought Tracktion3 Ultimate Bundle from Musicians Friend at closeout. I would have never paid anything close to the original price, but closeout makes it worthwhile. I use mostly softsynths.

The included plugin. I bought Tracktion3 Ultimate Bundle from Musicians Friend at closeout. I would have never paid anything close to the original price, but closeout makes it worthwhile. I use mostly softsynths. The included plugin that I use the most is Linplug's Alpha3.

What can I say? It works under Windows 7. Tracktion is cross-platform, Windows/Mac, but I haven't installed it on my Mac. Since I have Logic, I probably won't bother. You can record with Tracktion, you can play VSTs & effects.

I prefer Trackton to Ableton Live, Reaper and EnergyXT, but I think Mixcraft-5 is easier and faster than all of them. Mixcraft even has better plug-ins (IMHO).

Mixcraft was a little more expensive, and that's why I bought Tracktion. Truthfully, Mixcraft is a better product. If you're looking for the best DAW that you can get under $200, then Apple's Logic Express is the way to go. Of course, then you have to have a Mac. End product inferior Pros: 1) I really like the UI. Intuitive and productive. Cubase really suffers in comparison.

2) Inside Traktion, the audio quality is decent. I've had some issues getting decent bass.

Pros: 1) I really like the UI. Intuitive and productive. Cubase really suffers in comparison. 2) Inside Traktion, the audio quality is decent. I've had some issues getting decent bass levels, which I attribute to some combination of the Onyx firewire card + drivers. Do NOT upgrade the drivers.

The old drivers are decent for tracking.Cons: 1) The mix lies!2) The mix lies!!3) The mix lies!!!No matter what I do, on the same computer + audio system, the mix sound completely different (and worse) outside of the Traktion application. This makes mixing an iterative process.4) Inferior audio qualityEverything has this Traktion sound that, frankly, I do not like. 5) Plugins suckMost of the plugins in the 'ultimate bundle' just crash. Only the built-in (i.e.

Base traktion) plug-ins work reliably. The EQ is actually OK. But the compressor has a funny sound and is not transparent enough for vocals. The reverb likewise has a funny sound.6) Product has been abandonedIt isn't just Tracktion that Mackie has thrown on the trash heap. It is the whole 1st generation of Onyx+firewire products. Why can't they at least fix the current Windows driver problems?I don't understand why they don't offer an improved firewire card with word clock I/O (which would allow multiple units to daisy chain properly).Frankly, it makes me hesitate to purchase any Mackie product for recording. Stick to products that do not need any software and you'll be OK.

For regular analog use, I still like my Onyx 1620 quite a bit. I bought Tracktion 3 from Musician's Friend earlier this year. Having no experience with DAW's it has been a bit of a learning curve, but from what I've learned this is with any DAW software.

For the price, it can't be beat. I would recommend this to anyone either just getting started in digital recording, or looking for a good budget build. The only downsides to the software is that it is no longer supported (works fine with XP) and it is not used by many people. So if you plan on sending your recordings to a studio for mastering then you may want to consider Pro Tools or something similar. I bought this because of all the features it listed and I thought is would have been a good program but I was wrong. Everytime I open up Tracktion it comes up as a demo and asking me to register it.

I must have register it a million time now and its still doing the same thing.The program very complicated, its not easy to use as you are lead to believe. When recording vocals it does not show it in wave form until you stop the recording. I have used other programs that were much more easier, less confusing, cheaper, and with the same or better sound quality.Tracktion is not worth it, buy something much better, trust me do not waste your money on this program, I am very disappointed in this program.

BUY SOMETHING ELSE. I use traction 3 for all my mix's. I upgraded from Traction 2 and oh what an upgrade that was.

I always had CPU problems with 2 and 3 solved that issue. Now ill admit if your not use to traction this will throw you for a loop but as soon as you know how to use it its an easy DAW to use just like any other DAW out there. For me I find Mackie's way building a DAW to be easier to use then most other's but that my own opinion.what I dont like about it are the VST's.

Out of all the plugins that it comes with I maybe use 3 max. I find even free online VST's tend to be better to mix with on traction 3. I am normally a big fan of Mackie products (mixers, speakers etc are great).

However, Mackie got this one wrong. Traction 3 will only work on ONE specific 10.5 OS upgrade according to Mackie tech support. All other MAC OS systems are unsupported and Traction will crash. The download 'FIX' helps a little with the crashes, but the plug-ins (mainly the Mackie plug-ings) still do not work correctly. I have been able to figure out some work arounds to get them functioning, but it's still very frustrating.

MAC users should stick to one of the Apple LOGIC products - e.g. Logic Express, Pro or Studio. Pros: 1) I really like the UI. Intuitive and productive. Cubase really suffers in comparison. 2) Inside Traktion, the audio quality is decent.

All those add-ons make a very attractive offer. However, the one catch they fail to mention is that most of the included VST add-ons are locked to Tracktion and cannot be used with any other DAW or VST host. A major let down on this end.

I think Mackie should come clean and list which VSTs are locked to Tracktion. The only three I was able to figure out how to get working: Sampletank, GPO, and Drumcore TK (via rewire).The DAW itself is a fair value for the sale price. Its biggest drawback is the cluttered interface. Not much polish here.

Maybe it made sense to the programmer who built it, but they should have brought in a more experienced user interface designer. (Black text on dark grey background, for example.)Bottom line: If you're in to Tracktion this is a great upgrade. If you're not, you aren't missing much by moving on. For those on a very tight budget try to pick this one up on sale. Otherwise, you will find many more features available in another low-cost DAW.Additional note: I had problems with Tracktion when trying to make it a rewire slave with Ableton live and FL Studio. It worked fine as a rewrire host. I've had Tracktion for quite a long time.

Moved to it from first version of Sonar. I've loved it ever since. There are some quirks and changes in v3 that I had to sort out, but I've mixed down an album with it and have loved it's relatively small footprint and speed. I've run it on e-Mac 1GHz 1GB RAM machine with only some processing issues with a bunch of plug-in processing going on. Also run on my Core2Duo Latitude laptop, 2GB RAM. Have had no resource issues with it.

Want to get the bundle to get the virtual instruments and such. I bought Tracktion3 Ultimate Bundle from Musicians Friend at closeout.
