This week’s NAMM show brings a few surprises from Tracktion. We’ll be demonstrating Waveform™, a new DAW that to replace the T-Series workstations. In addition, initiatives to embrace new platforms such as Raspberry Pi and partnerships with manufacturers such as Media Overkill were also announced this morning.
The new Waveform DAW (above) takes all the key aspects of the T-Series, such as the ability to control all functions from a single screen, and adds a set of powerful features designed to speed workflow and provide a more universal appeal. The most obvious of these new features is a dedicated mixer page and a new suite of powerful plugins but all aspects of Waveform have been updated and streamlined. Current users of Tracktion’s T5, T6 and T7 DAWs will be able to upgrade to Waveform as usual.
Both Waveform and the BioTek Organic Synthesizer can be seen operating on the latest generation of single-board computers , as represented by the Raspeberry Pi, at our NAMM booth. A new initiative to provide a range of software and hardware peripherals to expand the utility of these small, inexpensive computer platforms for the “maker community” was also announced.
