I am looking for an audio mixer (preferably for Windows) that can mix and record channels based on a given criterion like:

Mute channel 2 when channel 1 is active. Put a gain gate on channel 1 (if the audio volume is low then mute it) etc.

You can try one from this list (all of them useful and free):

  • Cubase is not free - these are trial version downloads. Steinberg used to distibute Cubasis with some keyboards that was limited/free but I don't believe they do anymore. Good call on windows cakewalk.

Ardour is probably the most full featured FOSS cross platform audio program available.
