I have been trying to decide if I want to step into the Digidesign circle ( looks good on a business card ) or if I should mix and match for the sake of versatility, ( Cubase or similar with selection of appropriate hadware ). My questions are simple ones. Will protools help me to do better work ? Will clients care what I use if the finished product sounds good ? Is digidesgn's hardware any better or worse than other commercial gear ? Is it worth spending three times as much just to be able to say you use Protools? Does it make good business sense?
