    I'm still rocking ProTools.
    I love that it does everything I want it to do and does it well, but my wallet doesn't like the look of their new pricing system.

    May be learning Reaper in the near future....we'll see.

    I have been a Cubase guy since I bought my first home interface that came with a limited version of it. Cubase LE4.

    I worked in a studio with Protools DH setup and was not happy with the way it worked. It was cool to move forward from the Digital 8 Bus (D8B with DA 88's) crap we were using, but it left a bad taste in my head. Maybe I was just annoyed...

    Whatever feels comfortable to the user is what is likely best. They all have the same capability as far as I know.
    The type of music being recorded or created will be more the deciding factor. Some work better for other genres or styles. Cubase likely has the best VST drum editor tho.

    Pretty sure they all have demo versions. I tried Reaper and we just didn't get along. But I was already using Cubase so...

    I don't recommend Cubase to others because I am not a fanboy of the product. I just got on with it myself. I do recommend it for friends if they want me to help them out free tho....

    I should have said, I'm the same with PT.
    I think it's too expensive and generally don't recommend it but I got a ridiculously good long term deal which, unfortunately, just ran out.

    Yeah that seems more or less true. I haven't tried all of these by any means but they seem a lot more alike than different.

    I am still using a Tascam MX2424 hard disk recorder and the MX View software. When I export and mix on a DAW (which I sometimes do when not using the analog console) I am still using Sony Vegas as I know it inside out (I know it is for film editing, but before this back in the sonic foundry days it was a music software that could do film, I started on version B, god I am getting old LOL). Also use Magix Sequoia for mastering.

    All this will change soon as I have been trying out Reaper, Presonus Studio, and Harrison Mixbus, but before I can change over I need to train myself up so that the client is not sitting around while I try to find out how it works LOL, this when I get time, did I say get time LOL. The change over will happen when the Windows 10 machine is built.

    I'm using Nuendo. I bought in when there was a big difference between it and cubase, and just kept upgrading. If I knew then what I know now, I would have just gone with cubase.

    Cool Edit Pro 2.0 and sometimes Audition 3.0 for mixing. There is a built in fearture in CEP that no one else has that's worth its weight in gold. Its called "check this box to automatically correct for track DRIFT" which makes sure your separately recorded tracks are always in sync with each other, from start to finish. It's the most valuable feature I have ever seen. Even the newer Audition versions do not have it. In Adobes infinite wisdom they took it when the went to an all ASIO/USB driven platform, and with USB latency problems I would think it would prove to be very useful.

    Reaper all the way. Has nothing to do with the price. Works perfect with my Zoom R24 and thousands of plug ins. We a-b'd Reaper vs Pro Tools and no audible difference. Mixed down both and let other listeners decide. 6 folks... 3 and 3. So... a draw.
