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.
What are some of the high/low points in your opinion?
- 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
- 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.

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
Traverso DAW is a GPL licensed, cross platform multitrack audio recording and editing suite, with an innovative and easy to master User Interface. Traverso runs on the 3 most popular operating systems, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
Is it free? I'm on OSX and I'd give it a shot, just for fun
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 )
