Ardour DAW that works on a Mac as well

Interestingly enough, it is sponsored by SAE. It’s free, you don’t have to pay, but they request some sort of support on the download page. Considering how much these apps normally cost, it’s not bad.

ardour | the new digital audio workstation

Ardour is a digital audio workstation. You can use it to record, edit
and mix multi-track audio. You can produce your own CDs, mix video
soundtracks, or just experiment with new ideas about music and sound.

Ardour capabilities include: multichannel recording, non-destructive
editing with unlimited undo/redo, full automation support, a powerful
mixer, unlimited tracks/busses/plugins, timecode synchronization, and
hardware control from surfaces like the Mackie Control Universal. If
you’ve been looking for a tool similar to ProTools, Nuendo, Pyramix, or
Sequoia, you might have found it.

Above all, Ardour strives to meet the needs of professional users. This
means implementing all the “hard stuff” that other DAWs ( even some
leading commercial apps ) handle incorrectly or not at all. Ardour has
a completely flexible “anything to anywhere” routing system, and will
allow as many physical I/O ports as your system allows. Ardour supports
a wide range of audio-for-video features such as video-synced playback
and pullup/pulldown sample rates. You will also find powerful features
such as “persistent undo”, multi-language support, and destructive track
punching modes that aren’t available on other platforms.
