Software Description

Featured in Hitsquad's recommended list of the best DAW Software

Podium offers a hierarchic mixing engine that integrates audio recording, VST plugins and external MIDI and audio gear. Configuration of plugins and external hardware are encapsulated in an object based project structure, which hides the technical complexities when you want to focus on musical inspiration.

Podium Free is a fully functional freeware edition of Podium. It is identical to the licensed version, except for the following limitations:

  • MIDI interface setup is limited to one input and one output.
  • 64-bit mixer engine option is disabled.
  • Plugin multiprocessing is disabled.
  • ReWire is disabled.
  • Surround-sound playback is disabled.

Changes in v3.2.1

  • 64bit and 32bit compatible
  • Unicode names and text input support
  • New control surfaces page
  • Support for jBridge
  • Separate installation path
  • Updated Podium guide HTML document
  • Reorganized edit menu
  • Added new edit menu commands
  • Added new mouse edit shortcuts
  • Support for 4-way scroll wheel mouse
  • Various other bugfixes and improvements

Podium sequencer

I tried repeatedly but could not download this program to my brand new machine (Dell I7 multicore 3.xx Ghz) running windows 7.
I kept getting "repair" message.
Anybody know anything about this?

I think this is the best

I think this is the best free DAW out there. It's cut down from the full version, but the stuff it cuts are things like Rewire, surround sound, and 64 bit mixing, which doesn't hurt too much. (Cutting multi-core processing and multiple midi inputs are the only things that really hurt.) On the plus side, you get unlimited tracks and unlimited sends and returns, which a lot of the other freebies don't give you.

For the uninitiated, the best thing about Podium is the user interface and the workflow. If you don't need sample stretching (which Podium still doesn't do), it's worth using for that alone. Reaper feels really awkward in comparison.
