Tracktion has just announced new versions of their affordable DAWs Waveform Pro and Waveform Free, stocked with new sounds, plug-ins and other features.

Tracktion has always had a place in the market for offering affordable versions of Waveform (the cheapest of which comes in at $120USD) as well as a strong free version with plenty of features.

Waveform Pro Basic, for instance, comes stock with Celemony’s Melodyne and Antares’ Autotune, the two most well-known pitch correction plug-ins in the industry.

In Waveform Pro Standard and Extreme, Synthesiser workstations like BioTek2 and the RetroMod collection are added. Waveform Pro Standard and Extreme also come with DAW Essentials, a range of plug-ins covering everything from compression, to filters, to modulation and reverb.

Waveform Free is also a powerful tool, and Tracktion describes it as “unlike any other so-called Free DAW”. It comes stock with 4OSC, a synthesiser with four oscillators and a range of effects, as well as a drum sampler.

Tracktion’s new updates to both versions of Waveform also includes a new feature called Plug-in Sandbox, which is designed for use with third-party plug-ins to prevent the DAW from crashing if the plugins crash, which will save many a headache.
