Perfect app to start recording your music

Like all Tracktion DAW applications, T5 features an intuitive, single-screen interface. Input, waveform and mixer – including EQ, level, pan and plugins – are laid out from left-to-right. Simply drag-and-drop additional features and automation on any track as needed. Unlimited numbers of audio and MIDI tracks, combined with a professional feature set, allow you to compose, record, edit, mix and share your music with ease. Modest CPU requirements make T5 ideal for use on nearly any Mac, Windows or Linux (see requirements) computer.

Always Free. T7 Compatible.

T5 offers a great way to begin recording with literally no cost. Its lean code base and modest CPU burden allow you to use it on nearly any modern computer. Your files will be compatible with all other Tracktion DAWs. Use any VST and AU plugins. Download yours now!
