Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

So its st pattys day, id have to say that ableton is definately my favourite, i do favour working in loop production to nail on the fly ideas however the sequencer window is also fast and easy to make changes and rid that complete loop feel. Also the plugins are easy and sound good have mad tweakability, also sidechain options are great. Reason is up there but mainly as a rewire option....yeh ProTools 8 looks like its making a step into the IDM world as its up'd the midi side of things to compete, as an audio engineer im well excited about it

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Does anyone here use [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
(PC)? I remember seeing some screenshots and reading about a few months ago, but then I forgot the name of the DAW when I wanted to check it out some more. Now[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
. Seems like it's been around since 1990 (!), and it looks pretty killer. The specs are really great and the price, is $50! How can you beat that?

I'm wondering if anyone here uses it and have anything to say about it. I have tried the demo, but I'm a bit lost and "key command handicapped" so far.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Hi guys,

I voted Logic, because I just simply like the possibilities that allow us to make a sound from scratch to "pre-mastering". I do like Ableton too, even if i find it a little less "user friendly", but i know it's not really relevant ^^.

Cheers

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

i must admit after seeing some videos on youtube ableton live looks great for creativity but after downloading the demo i couldnt get to grips with it but im going to try and use it aswell as using cubase sx3 which i find straight forward.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

In an ideal world, my DAW would be a combination of the stability of Logic 7 (and the ability to double-click a region and have the sample editor just open in a new window), Logic 8's delay designer and improved stereo delay, whereby you can delay just the mids or sides, and the look/feel/sound of ProTools 8...

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

I chose Orion because thats what got me started in producing music, and I still use it for writing as I find it easy to use, but I edit, mix and master in Sony Vegas/Soundforge now as the sound quality is much better than Orion. Looking to get out of Vegas though, Either get Abelive or Logic. But I gotta buy a MAC first...thats even more daunting...

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Sorry I gotta go Live despite having used fruity for 10 years.

After 10 days with Live I feel really home. If I wanna make something I know how to do it. Really easy to understand how it all works. For advanced beat making I would still use fruity, and where sequencing and having a really powerful pianoroll is needed- yeah fruity always.

Live just feels better making a song in including recorded material and samples.

Thats right and Orion is quite similar in its pattern arrangement, except that Orion has endless capabilities for time signatures and displacement. In fact it's the only DAW that can do quintuplets as far as i'm aware, (Renoise maybe?) You just need to be good a maths to harness it.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

I use ableton for sequencing/fx/editing and I use Sampler and simpler a lot for creating drumkits and shit. But reason has some really good synths like the Maelstrom, and thor so I often find myself rewiring the two.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

I use Sony Acid Pro 7 with several VST instruments and effects. On occasion, I also rewired to Reason 4 to Acid.

I love the depth, but simplicity, of Acid's work flow to combine MIDI, audio and loops.
