ReaperI posted a thread earlier about with drum software to get and got some great responses. So I figured I'd find out what DAWs you guys are using.
Is anyone using Cubase? And what version? Any other good popular ones worth looking into?
Steinberg is building on 17 year old code. It's starting to feel bulky. Too much clicking. Studio One is clean and efficient and light. It's missing some features I love in Cubase, but it seems faster. I think what's most important is because it's not being programmed with 17 years of backward compatibility in mind, but rather, it's future.Brock, How come you are thinking about switching?
FWIW, I recommend against Logic. Its workflow is awkward (ironically, ilLogical) and unlike that of many others DAWs.
That said, when it comes down to it they all mostly do the same thing. It you want the kitchen sink in terms of features, get Cubase. It's remarkably complete and deep. If you want fast, get Studio One. If you do loops, use Ableton. If you want cheap and skinable, get Reaper. And if you want to induce suicide, get Logic. *ducks and runs*
