    I just saw the add for native tools in the latest issue of EQ. Nuendo packaged with Apogee a/d16 and d/a 16. I thought it was pretty similar to what opus used. I thought he used an apogee of some sort as an A to D converter. Maybe I was wrong about that.
    Say that reminds me, Opus, what were you using before Nuendo? Where you a Cubase user? I just downloaded their demo, and I think it is pretty cool. The screensets and such. I really like that they have dynamics already set up on all the channels. You know that I am not a pro, and really don't have clue as to how to correctly use compression, but I thought it was cool anyway.
    What do you guys think about Sonar, did it get left behind, with all these new upgrades? nuendo/sx, Logic 5. I know being first out the gate makes it easy for your competitors to come in and outdo you, how do you think they did with Sonar 2.0?

    Hmmm...native tools? what's that? lol!!
    Well, considering I work for Apogee...yes, I use their stuff only when I take it home! I'm still deciding if I want a Trak2 or not..I 'm thinking I definately do and use it with conjunction of my RME card.
    Sonar..yeah, that's not really considered a "pro" app so to me it's a beginner's program.
    I started off with Cakewalk when I first started on PC's...before that I was a mac user with Vision and galaxy editor synced up with a Roland VS880EX.
    Than I switched to Cubase after Cakewalk since I found cakewalk unbelievably frustrating. Cubase was soooooo much easier and did things in real time. I was with Cubase for a long time and then I got Nuendo and have been enjoying life very much so...
    The AD and DA 16's are indeed making a buzz in the industry..they sound really nice...
