Well it looks like my Digi002R went south on me last night. Haven't tracked down the exact problem yet, but I've been thinking about moving on from PT Le for a while and this is a little motivation. (I definitely won't be making any decision until I cool down, but I might as well collect information while I'm pissed off.) I mostly record folk, jazz, Contemporary Christian. I record a wide variety of acoustic instruments, but also electric guitar, bass, and keys. I dabble in recording classical. Don't do much midi or any video as yet, but I suppose that could come in down the line. At this time, I'm a project studio - recording my own stuff and that of friends. I'm not looking to attract or impress clients, and compatibility with other people's work isn't an issue. Frankly, I haven't had any real problems with the PT interface. I found it pretty easy to learn - I used a couple of tutorial books and got up to speed pretty quickly. However, I like what I see in several other pieces of software, and there are clearly some advantages over PT. Samplitude/Sequoia gets a lot of play over in the acoustic music forum and I like a lot of the features (many of which seem to apply well to the things I do). But I'm not sure how to compare to platforms like Vegas or Audition. I've been following threads on the various platforms and doing some searches for a while, but I've never seen a good thread or article that spelled out the pros and cons in a way that applied to me. I'd appreciate any comparisons of the various software or just advice on how to approach the decision.
