Trying to get an idea what most people here use.

Well... what else do you want to know?
My only input: More people should give Studio One a try, it is innovative and introduces some new concepts. Its workflow is very integrated and straight forward.
Yeah, the OP is pretty much "pick what you use" and that's it. If you're looking for more info aeser, gotta ask.
logic, cubase and reaper
Mainly Logic. I'll go into Reason and Ableton for sound design sessions, but drums and mixdowns are always Logic 8.
studio one ftw:teef:
Logic, sometimes rewire with Reason, but 95% of my work is done in Logic
no i get it, i didn't ask anything more, just everytime i ever posted something like this somewhere people commented and wanted to talk about what they use, ask about other things, etc. and i just found it weird that it had so many views compared to so few votes and like no comments. weirdly sterile.
Ahh, gotcha. Maybe it's just the cyclical nature of The Grid? I lurked hard for years and rarely posted.
3 renoise users! :teef:
I use logic when I'm on a mac and for a PC I use FL to create vst sounds which I master then input them into Reason for the mixdown. I then create the MP3 from the huge ass WAV file in audacity, lol
FL Studio all the way. It just feels like home, though I'm thinking of trying out new DAWs starting this summer. Tried renoise once but didn't have the time to put concious effort in the learning process. Did like the type of workflow it provided.
1 Digital Performer - hows the interface ?
I am using reaper more and more recently. Still need ableton racks to make my sounds and I rely on a lot of the native ableton plugs, but reaper is so much more stable and looks way nicer.
It is indeed good, but I still prefer ableton over anything.
Why is Digital Performer so popular? I don't ever see anyone talking about it.
i'm the only one that selected dp. it's a really nice DAW, much more popular with film scoring and classical music composing people. the drum editor in it is the best i've seen in any DAW.
i like it better than any other DAW besides possibly logic. coming from a band type studio hardware perspective it's laid out really sensibly to me and the midi programing is particularly nice on it.
Haha, oh I made a mistake. I thought the 18 for Fruity were for DP...
studio one and fruity loops 10
instead of plugging in hits on a piano roll it's just a grid where you on the side assign whichever drum sound to each line you want, and can have multiple midi tracks represented so you can drum program several kits from 1 window, and control the velocity,etc. of every hit very easily and any other automation. i just love it, i haven't seen one that nice from any other DAW.
I'd welcome the studio one users to talk a bit about that sequencer.
As it's quite new I'm interested in things like, 'why did you choose that daw', 'was it easy to learn', 'what are the (obvious?) benefits', etc.
yea really easy to learn has the same drag and drop functions of fruity loops as in its got the same menu that opens up to all your samples vstis etc also the keybord functions are really nice (press b to bounce a file down d to duplicate a part) layout wise its a lot like cubase (lined automation etc but you can hide the automation so your tracks dont look messy) also has the automatic timestrech function of ableton and you can select aload of parts press ctrl a and automatically routes them to a bus. oh also when you do bounce a part down it automatically brings it back in to your track aswell.
Been on Logic 9 the last couple years and have to say I love it!
Looking at the poll I am surprised to see that percentage using ableton live , I have to ask what is it that this program is offering that does it for you?
Bringing this old topic up again. I was an Ableton user for many years and only used 2% for what it is made for (LIVE) and I liked only 2 of the stock FX tops. When I started working more and more with hardware the downfalls of this sequencer were obvious. Bad bad timing (seriously missing the first note), bad bad bad midi implementation, so no sysex or programm changes and I simply didn't like the interface for what I was doing, like editing multiple MIDI files.
I tried Renoise and liked the Midiimplementation, also that you can see several patterns at once but a few things are confusing. Like you can't bind tracks to certain midi channels, also I've never worked with a tracker so this concept was too esoteric for me to get into it quickly. There was a brief Logic time before Ableton and I always liked Reason 2,5 - 4. Cubase was a one time install and didn't get me nowhere but this is a long time ago. Now I found Digital Performer and I'm stunned by what it can do. It is perfect for midi (although I haven't managed to sync my virus yet) and I can simply programm all the initial parameters before the first bar and don't have to worry my gear doesn't load the right settings right from the beginning.
Also it is capable of displaying several midi clips in one window! This is amazing so I can work on a choppy bassline and two drumbreaks at once! It also lets me use my soundcard with 16 samples buffer latency, but this is really pushing the limits.
I'll add a lot when I learned more about this awesome software, the manual has 1000 pages!
Sketching and rough arrangement is done in maschine then smooth out and mix in logic
Used ableton live for years but don't touch it now since getting maschine
does anybody else use bitwig?
