If you've been waiting to download a free copy of Mackie's incredible audio/MIDI application Tracktion discussed here on CDM,
do it now: Tracktion is available free only until 12/31. After that,
you're limited to downloading a demo version that introduces white
noise after 2 weeks of use. (The free version is fully functional
forever.) Mackie will show version 2.0 of Tracktion at the NAMM
conference late in January; we'll have more details of the new version
