audiokid and I have been having a private discussion in regards to this topic.

We are curious as to which way RO members are leaning. Are you on PT with a Mac? PT with a PC? Nuendo / Cubase, Reason, Cakewalk, Cool Edit, etc or a stand alone system with an analog or digital console? Please share your thoughts with us so we can tailor the forum to be of the most help to all of you.. .

logic on mac... and wouldn't change it for anything, unless something comes out which tops it up...

have used plenty other stuff as well over the years, PT / DP / Cubase / etc.../ PCs (if i can avoid PC's then i do!!, they keep me away from concentrating on making, recording, editing, etc. MUSIC, to much trouble with them damn things.... :twisted: )

Sonar 4

I originally was going to go PT on my PC but:

a) I did not want to disable Hyperthreading on my Intel chip, it's a cool feature and Sonar 4 has a setting to maximize this ability in the software.
b) I hate proprietary anything in computers/recording etc., let me decide what's best for my situation.
c) I want software designed for my OS, not ported from some other platform.
d) I record almost entirely audio tracks mostly with real drums mic'd... hence I need a lot of mic pres.

I'm going with a Firepod and Sonar 4 (Producer) for my PC.

(Given those reasons... I value where you're coming from, does that make sense to you Kurt?)

I still use Sound Designer II and Digital Performer on an old Mac 8100, but I'm just doing editing/mastering. I use SDII for my final 2-mix and DP just for some of the "formant editing" (still prefer Performer 4.2 for MIDI.)
I have PT Free around here somewhere, if I could just find the hard drive to go with it.

I agree with above.
It's time to split up the "other"-section.

First platform: PC or Mac

Then DAW:
ADAT HD24
RADAR
ProTools HD
ProTools LE
Soundscape
Nuendo
Sequoia / Samplitude
Cubase
Sonar
Dig Perf
Vegas
Logic
Wavelab
Adobe Audition / Cool Edit
Tracktion
Kristal

etc
