Tim, this looks so awesome. I couldn't help myself , I posted the announcement as well. I'm so excited. I have almost completely replaced my deadly hybrid rig with 100% Sequoia. I don't even use UAD plugins. I need nothing. Its such a complete DAW. Does 13 sound any different? In a nut shell, how would you describe the changes, improvements or what? The "NEW" list is very impressive!
