Tracktion calls T7 “the musicians DAW” and they’ve loaded it with lots of updates geared toward the recording artist. In this in-depth tutorial series studio master Bill Edstrom shows you how to get the most out of this powerful one-window creative studio tool!

Bill starts his exploration of the new T7 “blue steel” interface by describing the added functionality of the updated compact toolbar.

The next video shows you all the new features you have with the browser, including moving it left, right, to the top of the window, or having multiple views open simultaneously.

Bill then demonstrates the new multi-level Zoom Tool and the new three-column interface of the Projects Tab, and how you can synchronize Browsers.

That leads to an examination of the Auto Show panels, and the Visual Plug-in Selector which lets you choose plug-ins from thumbnails.

Moving on, Bill explains the enhancements to T7’s clip functions and how you can now group clips and create linked copies of clips. Creating automation patterns between markers is explored, as well as how to use the side chain input.

Now that you have a handle on the new workflow possibilities, Bill guides you through the First Run Setup options, including the new scroll options.

He concludes with three videos on T7 effects including how to apply Track LFOs, the updated Plug-in Racks, and how to apply Clip Layer effects.

Whether you are new to Tracktion T7, or you’re an existing user looking to get the most from the new additions, check out “Tracktion T7 Update Explained” today!

Fills in the gaps

This is a great DAW, but had little documentation until Bill did these videos, and wrote the definitive eBook on this. now I can use Tracktion to full effect, and this DAW is as good as anything out there.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started on trumpet at age 10, but got more passionate when I picked up bass and guitar in high school. During college, I had a band where I shared lead vocals and electric guitar duties. After that I was in a variety of bands usually on bass or behind the mixing board.

2. What training have you had?

I studied electrical engineering in college but mostly learned recording and music on my own. Recently, I completed the Master of Songwriting and Guitar program through Berklee Music.

3. When did you get into recording?

I have always been fascinated with tape recording since fifth grade. I started by recording demos by bouncing back and forth between two cassette decks. Later I moved on to portastudios, ADATS, pro studios, then to a DAW based project studio.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I work with songwriters world-wide as the founder and creator of LilacWriter.com - an online collaboration site for songwriters. In my career, I have done FOH, producing, songwriting, mixing, mastering, and voice over. Used to work regionally, but now requests can come from anywhere in the world.

I've written two books on audio production: "Studio One for Engineers & Producers" and "The Power in Cakewalk SONAR" both published by Hal Leonard Books.

Whenever possible, I work closely with the developers of the products I teach doing testing, bug reporting, and feature requests. I think this gives me a much deeper understanding of the products. I really enjoy seeing the products I work with improve.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I have always been interested in making technology easier to use and understand. I think showing examples is essential when introducing a topic. I feel recording should be a fun and creative experience and I hope that comes across in my videos.
