Behringer DAW decision

Behringer has announced via its Facebook page that Music Tribe has begun the development process for a new, free DAW.

Music Tribe is the parent company for Behringer, TC Electronic and Klark Teknik, among other music-related brands. The Facebook post reads:

“It’s now official. We will be creating our own Music Tribe DAW.
This is a massive undertaking, which will take at least 18 months and for that purpose we have now assembled a large development team.
Our Music Tribe DAW will also include samples and VST’s plus connections to third party VST’s. Our goal is to include the very best features available, including multiple user interfaces for both recording and DJ.
We would love to develop this together with you and hence encourage you to share your preferred platforms and features so we can consider your input. Our opportunity is that we have no legacy platform to maintain, which will allow us to think “blue sky” and combine the “best of all worlds”.

Best of all, the DAW will be FREE of charge!

As always thank you so much for all your support and loyalty”.
