    Ask and you shall recieve.

    This is as comprehensive as I could get. There may be a few stragglers that I left out. If that is the case please say so. There's Bias Peak Studio but I don't eve know if people use that. Do they? Let me know.

    Please vote for all that apply.

    It's a particularly large forum. Give them time. There are a multitude of topics here and if you're not looking for this in particular it's almost invisible.

    My main DAW is not listed but it is targeted for radio/tv/post production- Adobe Audition. I just have always used it for multitrack recording regardless.

    Interesting poll, the old one was indeed too old... I'd like to see how many Studio One and Reaper users are here. Looks like I'm the first Logic guy to vote here. Not surprising, considering that even I'm a bit worried about the future of Logic. I'm no upgrade freak but it's bordering on five upgrade-less years now...

    Sorry I missed that. Unfortunately I can't edit the poll.

    No worries. Like I said, unless one is working radio/tv/post, Audition isn't the first thing that pops to mind.

    Yes, I believe you can edit the poll, there is a pencil icon that appears above the title you click. But I added Audition just in case you aren't able.
    We should really have them in A to Z order and be sure all DAW's are listed. I'm not up on all the options. Do we have them all now? If we have them then we are good yes?

    If not, maybe starting over would be a good thing since this thread is going to be a round a long time.

    Thoughts?

    I really wish logic became the standard and not Pro Tools. Logic is just so much more powerful and efficient. There's definitely a lot to learn but you can do everything and you don't have to buy a specific hardware or software.

    ProTools (Digidesign) was first on the market. It's now native also. I don't know which feature is missing on the last version. All DAWs have their own workflow. It's just a matter of taste.

    Please note that since version 9, it is no longer necessary to use only Avid hardware with PT.

    True. But that doesn't make up for all the other features PT lacks by comparison to the other major players.

    Pro Tools and it's defenders seem to have locked themselves in a cave. They don't want to accept that other DAWs have surpassed their capabilities. With a quality interface and just about any other DAW, you can do anything that you can do in Pro Tools. That is speaking strictly audio of course. As far as midi is concerned, PT has well been surpassed. Unfortunately, there is nothing that comes close to PT when it comes to Audio Post. Having all those DSPs can make a very large (150+ tracks) run a lot smoother. And for what it's worth, that is their target market. They could care less about the audio community.

    Not surprised Reaper is in the lead.
