With PT9, ProTools is now available as a software-only DAW. So now software to software comparisons of the major DAWs can be made without all of those hardware demons lurking in the back of our minds. I'd like to encourage those of you with extensive experience on multiple DAWs to chime in with comparisons of (1) workflow (2) features and (3) technical specs. Please give as many specifics as possible and mention the versions of the DAWs you worked on. It may be a bit premature to start this thread since no one can have "extensive" experience with PT 9 yet, but our fearless leader suggested we start this and see how it goes.
