Best recording/sequencing software

Hi everyone,
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience comparing the many different types of:
1. multitracking software
2. wave editing software
3. sequencing
or perhaps suites that contain a combination of the above. I find that Cubase sx3, sonar5, and Pro Tools are some hot multitrackers, and gigastudio is one of the best sequencer/samplers. Anyone have any input on these? which of these would you say is better?

I would say it depends on the individual completely...

I didnt want a PT LE setup cos I didnt want to be tied to Digidesign hardware, and I do alot of work with MIDI and found Cubase SX nicer to work with. Also depends what system you are using, Mac or Windoze.

Anyway, it is a subjective thing really, you cant say "That one is the best" cos it will be different for different people.

Good luck!

I guess so, but i still think you can compare the different programs in terms of sample and effects qualities, organization/layout, latency, stability. I was wondering if anyone has had the chance to compare these key features.
Im running windows with an audiophile 192 card, so i can use just about any of the programs mentioned

The thing is my impression of what's best might be the antithesis of what you consider best, therefore the best advice I can give you is to visit the manufacturers' websites of the programmes you're interested in, have a look at the various specs and any screenshots they might have and, if available, download the demos and see how you get on with them.

That is so individuel, for me it's LOGIC, bar none.

i only need Logic and Peak. and for me they are the best and worlds apart from any other software outhere, the only other thing i dig is ableton live for hmmm.... live use.

but that is my opinion, nothing else.
having used pretty much all avialable audio softwares.

You're going to choose a DAW based on the bundled samples and effects? You know you can add your own..? :lol:

Depends more on your hardware and drivers than your DAW.
