The new version includes the nBridge module to allow using legacy 32 bit plugins inside the 64 bit version of the application and to sandbox plugins in a separate process. Sandboxing protects the program from crashing and losing the user work in the event that the 3rd party plugin fails because of a bug (i.e. a software defect), much like recent web browsers open web pages into separate processes so that if a web page crashes the other pages remain active.
Version 7 features a redesigned user interface, which streamlines many editing tasks. It also includes n-Track Drums 2.0, the percussion + step sequencer component, with a new sounds library, and improves compatibility with third party audio plugins and instruments.
n-Track Studio is offered in two variants, the Standard edition costs $49, the EX edition costs $89 and contains more advanced features such surround mixing, synch with external devices and editing of individual samples.
Existing users can upgrade to the latest version for $34.
