Logic's pretty damn cool. I don't much like the workflow of it personally, but that's my thing. If you got a Mac, you do need to check it out.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

i reckon all of them are good.. i've heard producers make great tunes on quite a lot of them.. if they're worth mentioning here, they're worth a go. totally depends on what you get 'used to'. rock on my friends.

There's Cakewalk Music Creator 4 too.
My favorite due to it's simplicity is MultitrackStudio Pro Plus. Not very well known, but it has a loyal following.

No doubt...Ableton Live to create tracks and for the liveset...Pro Tools for the quality of its plugs (Bomb factory) and the facility of routing

Ableton Live for ideas and mixing, Logic and Pro Tools for anything else

High points:
- Octaphonic internal mixing capabilities (not really something that everyone needs, particularly not for standard IDM, but I use it quite a bit)
- Extremely flexible (nested busses on top of nested busses)
- 32-bit floating point precision throughout (I know others do bigger, but they also dither down multiple times)
- It's free (as in speech, and free as in beer)!
- Extremely reliable development team (won't release any potentially buggy code)
- it's the best there is in the Linux DAW world (and since I run Linux...) it does also run on Mac (yay for Unix compatibility)
- Once the LADSPA plugins are installed, then there's hundreds of onboard fully automated effects

Low points:
- MIDI isn't implemented yet (though the development [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
look sweet)
- VST plugins are kinda tricky to get working (and not all will be compatible with the linux environment)
- not designed to replace a wave editor
- I've heard mixed things about it's OSX capabilities, but never seen/tried it myself

Really is a workhorse in the linux audio toolkit, and I imagine it is a little-known option for Mac users. If anyone tries it on mac, please give a review, I'd like to hear what you think.

Yup, it's licensed under the GPL (free as in speech). It also costs nothing (free as in beer).

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

damn I missed that poll

here ya go, ableton for me

basically I don't want to start over and learn a new one.
I mean, who can use any of their sequencers here at 100% of what it's capable of doing?
Not me, for sure.
So i guess I'll stick to that for some time

I hope you are more lucky than me or your machine is more inclined to play well with it than mine -- I tried to get it running when it first came out and also a couple of updates later. And although I did manage to get it running (and a few vsts recognized) it was so "shaky" it was really not useable.... However, I too have heard good things about it so... I really hope the problem was on my end .... (btw, interface kinda reminds me of Traction )
