I use Pro Tools 9. The only reason I’ve stayed with it is because I grew up using it in college, and it would take too much time to backtrack and learn another program.

I’ve often told people that if I had a choice to do it again, I’d pick Logic. It seems like Logic was designed with composers in mind while Pro Tools was created with professional mixing and editing in mind (It’s a fact because PT wasn’t MIDI integrated until Pro Tools 8 ).

Is v.7 stable?

I didn’t trust it first, but it turned out that it is as stable as 6.5. The only thing that’s more critical is my Eucon Adapter for my Euphonix/Avid fader controllers. But i guess they will update that too…

But who wants to get in a sinking ship ?! (Logic)

I use Ableton Live 7 atm and why Ableton? Because i started on it couple years ago and i got used to it. :S I tried Cubase and i did not like the concept of having multiple windows around me i prefer 1 window DAW and i tried Studio one By PreSonus seems to be good and it doesn’t multiple windows but i think Ableton has more Possibilities but i might be very wrong :)

I use Sonar most of the time, just because I’ve been a Cakewalk user for 15 years by now)))

Olloproject, let’s have a beer. I use Sonar, too. ~13 years btw, I use 8.0 or 8.5 (depending on projects). The new Sonar X is too new and too unusual for me, I’m very conservative, lol. Among all, the sound of your projects doesn’t depend much on DAW, but on straightforwardness of your hands and clean ears.

In my home studio for producing and composing: Cubase 6

When I worked for a PP company: Pro Tools (7.4 and 8 )

I’ve tried Logic 9 too :D

Pro Tools is awesome for audio editing and for working on video, but all these new versions in the last years don’t convince me at all.

With Logic I found hard editing audio files, but maybe was just me. And I agree with Mat. If Logic ends with a X like Final Cut (and if mac pro s won’t be updated, of course) I think that the world of professionals will move away from Apple…

+1 for me. I was a Logic user for many years…started with Logic 1 and ended with Logic 7… imo they missed the train….
But however, some people are still making great music with logic… ;)
btw: I forgot to mention that i have PT10 too…not bad at all, but i prefer Cubase for what i do.

I used Fl Studio before and right now i’m in the process of switching to Ableton Live and wondering why I didn’t do it before! The reasons led me to switch my DAW were mostly about recording.

First, time correction is not a probem with Ableton. I has a nice warping algorithm so your first take is usually in time with the tempo. If you’re not satisfied with a certain part of your recording you don’t need to start over, just place marks around the section and it will allow you to insert a section there easily.

Secondly, you don’t have to start mixing right at the beginng. Just fool around and record and sequence a lot of segments, try them against each other and when you think you are onto something you can start arranging. It allows more room for creativity.

Thirdly, clean up! When fooling around with recordings you don’t have to worry about filling your hard drive with lots of unused wave files. It has nice project management options so you can delete unused data easily when you’re finished.

I don’t know if these functions are available in the other DAWs but Fl Studio certainly sucked on this front.
