Mackie has just announced that it has sold and transitioned its Tracktion Music Production Software to the newly-formed Tracktion Software Corporation (TSC).
The new firm is led by Julian 'Jules' Storer, the original creator of Tracktion, as well as James 'Woody' Woodburn and Dave Christenson.
“With Mackie’s continued focus on creating innovative hardware solutions, the choice to transition Tracktion to TSC was clear,” said Matt Redmon, Mackie product manager. “TSC is fully dedicated to the development, support and marketing of Tracktion. Their experience with the DAW market and intimate knowledge of Tracktion made them the perfect group to take Tracktion into the future.”
The newest version of the software, Tracktion 4, will be made available via the Tracktion website and features significant upgrades from the previous edition. The Tracktion engine has been completely re-written and is now fully optimised for the very latest operating systems – both Mac and PC – along with 64-bit processing, WMA, AU and WASAPI support.
Customers purchasing a new Mackie product that includes Tracktion as well as those looking to upgrade, can download the software from the website.
