Tracktion’s Waveform 9 DAW may help you find your unique sound
Tracktion Software have announced version 9 of its Waveform DAW, which may surprise those who recall that the ‘first’ version of the software was only launched last year. However, the numbering also takes into account all the previous versions of Tracktion’s previous DAW… er, Tracktion.
Leaving the confusing moniker issue aside, Waveform 9 includes a library of 24-track drum loop construction kits. These can be used in conjunction with the new Multi Sampler instrument, which will enable you to dissect and rearrange your beats. There’s also the new Modular Mixing Tool, which can be used to customise the interface and give you more control. Elsewhere, improvements have been made to the MIDI pattern generator, and there are some new modifiers.
Waveform 9 prices start at $109, with upgrades from previous versions available from $59. It runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
