You folks must have all been through this quandry, perhaps you can advise me? I've got a few workstations running audio setup on a small scale. They're all running Cakewalk, with HDSP hardware. I'm on Sonar P3, maybe about time to upgrade to P6, unless... I really don't like the way Windows is going (Vista), so I'm looking at what alternative software there is, in particular the Mac. I don't want anything with USB key activation. This software will be running on some laptops, and they run out of ports quickly if every piece of software wants a USB id. Some of my stations use software on laptop (for portable work) and a desktop PC (in the studio), so it would be ideal if one licence could be used on more than one machine (but not at the same time). Just to save a bit of cash, really. This is for serious multi-track recording, bands in the studio, and live concerts. What would you all recommend I do...?
