I'm strongly considering switching to Reaper as my main daw. While I've dabbled with samplitude and do like it, I'm finding there's some things I don't like. It's upgrade price is rather steep and seems to rarely include major updates. It's hybrid audio engine is a bit limited relative to others if I'm understanding their operation correctly. Also there's a nag screen about updating that when I open the program, despite clicking the do not show again box. Also it's not really Atmos compatible with only 7.1 output.
3 DAWs - 3 sounds? Reaper vs. Sonar vs. Samplitude In this video, I test 3 DAWS by doing the exact same mix of the same song. There was a long debate as if every DAWs sounded the same and I thought it was time to get a true answer.
I also give a link to downloadable multitracks songs.
What do you think of the tests, convincing ?
I’m still at least 3-4 years from completing my studio build (I have a build thread under Studio Construction) and as I get closer I need to begin making some concrete choices about my recording + mixing setup. I've used Nuendo from the start for more than 4 years now. I’ll try to keep focused and concise but I think my quandaries are closely interrelated between 2 dilemmas. Perhaps I should post each in different threads?
Im using Sonar 6 PE on my PC but Im switching to an intel iMac and need some advice. I want something just as powerful as Sonar, maybe something a major rock producer would use. I mean of course other than pro tools.
Thanks for the help!
What are the differences and advantages/disadvantages between these two?
Which one in you guys' opinion is better for a beginner, and gives overall better sound quality.. I'm a beginner, and i've just gotten both programs, yet I haven't experimented yet, so which one program would you say is better and why? I'd appreiciate it.
Without considering all of the hardware implications...
What are the main differences in these programs?
a. CEpro2 has a ton of effects the others don't (at least, not included free)
b. Pro Tools is the "standard" in the industry, but kinda tied to hardware
c. Sonar handles MIDI a LOT better
Before I lay out the $200-500, I'd like someone to "compare and contrast" strengths and weaknesses.
I'm a little (make that a lot) confused as to the difference between Radar II and Radar 24. I know, from reputation, that the Radar system has a solid reputation for being solid, amongst those who are used to analog recording. I know Radar 24 has brought the price down, and uses BEos (actually that long Internet name).
