Tracktion, which was originally developed by UK-based Raw Materials Software, is now part of a collaborative effort in which Mackie is handling all marketing and distribution activities, as well as consulting on features and future releases. Mackie is also be bundling Tracktion with select hardware products beginning with the Spike Powered Recording system, a 24-bit, 96k music production system that includes all of the hardware and software necessary to track, mix and record music on a Mac or PC.
Also newly available on the Mackie site is a Tracktion registration and updates page, as well as a demo version of Tracktion that interested users can download for free and audition the software on their own system. Tracktion is compatible with Windows 98/2000/ME /XP and Mac OS X 10.2 and above.
