I've tried deck 3.5 and I didnt like it, but yesterday I downloaded a copy of SPARK ME and it gave me great optimism for the possibilities of freeware. So, if anyone can recommend a freeware multitrack program that I can try... I'm all ears. Also, what are the thoughts on Apple's Soundtrack as being a viable option or usable alternative to CUBASE XL or the like. I'm guessing its a much lower grade in terms of capabilites.. but Ive never used it. Anyone have experience with both? Thanks!
