There are several good Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) available for Linux. However, only a few of them are free to download.
Now, Tracktion’s T7 DAW became a freeware (although, not an open source software) and it is available for free to download across multiple platforms (Linux, Windows, and Mac).
FYI, Tracktion T7 is not open source software.
If you’ve kept tabs on what Tracktion’s up to, you must be knowing that its previous version (T6) was available for free while the T7 with all the features that a full-fledged DAW offers was in development. And, they decided to make it available for free.
With the inclusion of T7 DAW as one of the free DAWs available for Linux, some of the most popular DAWs like Reaper or Bitwig might offer a free version for Linux – to compete with. But, that’s just something to expect – without any facts stated.
While there’s a lot of features to talk about in a DAW, but let us take a quick look on what the T7 DAW has to offer.
