Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

A child from the other thread. Figured that it deserved a poll like the synths and plugins got. I tried to remember all that I can. So, if something's missing, ask a mod to add it. You get one choice. Choose wisely! MWA HA HA!

(wisely indeed, I fucked up so make your choices again )

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

cubase is my fav. have used sonar, logic, reason and ableton live. but really, if i'd learnt sonar or logic instead of cubase i'm sure it would change my fav to one of those two, as their all quite solid.

Fuck. I'm a damn fool. Fruityloops Studio is going to have to be added eventually.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

i just got sonar7 demo, read up about it and thought that it could be nice to use in conjunction with live.
i use energyxt with live, and ive been thinking of using reaper with live.

id like to bump both reaper and energyxt, especially xt since theyre not closeminded developers and they realise that theres a linux market aswell.
hear that, ableton?
shame on you.

Poll updated with new choices.

My vote easily goes to Logic Studio for the sheer ease-of-use that they've updated it with, and the quality of the final sound rivals Pro Tools imo.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

I say Cubase, cause I've used it now for over 10 years (but, it still have some pains in the ashsoels). Second is Jeskola buzz, but favorite is a singular and that means just one..so overall, Cubase. I wish there was a hybrid between Buzz and Cubase/Sonar/Logic.

I also gave in to downloading a demo of Ablive, to see what it was all about..but I feel like a noob. Like writing with your left hand if you are righthanded.

Currently, it's being dominated by Ableton Live like everything else. Which comes as no surprise. However, I feel your pain, because as you can probably guess, I voted for Project5.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

i use fruity loops more for dubstep/drumnbass, but buzz/buz is my favorite as it is absolutly crazy, just very confusing for me atm having just got it a few weeks ago, good for glitchy idm stuff

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

I chose Live. I've abandoned the naive notion that a DAW could be as intuitive as something like photoshop (used to mess with that before getting into music) ... and learning to do things the Live way has been pretty rewarding ... and pretty n33t sometimes ... having previously come from the clunky behemoth that is MOTU Digital Performer.

Cirric-

After working with Live for a few months I can see that it's an incredible tool. I haven't yet updated to the new version, but I don' think that's required.

Anyhow, I think Live is one of the greatest tools out there right now, right next to Reaktor and Logic Pro, in terms of creative control and personal experience, as well as technical achievement.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Yeah with live 7 the engine was spiffed up to be 64-bit and the EQ and all that upgraded accordingly, FWIW.

Since my ADHD keeps me from RTFM a lot of the time, there are lots of wicked tutorials on YouTube, too, for picking up Live tricks

I'm a whore for logic.

I love live for playing out and some other nifty things it can do, but for sequencing and writing I feel like its the clunkiest piece of shit ever.
