  1. I’ve tried many of the editing DAW’s SP said he is going to try out. Reaper was great, but I didn’t like the interface, seemed very outdated, I found it a little clunky when it came to editing at the waveform level. I’m definitely not a fan of audacity unless you are a beginner and don’t plan to get better at editing. It’s destructive and obviously has a lot of limitations.
    Looked at Hindenburg, it was very intriguing but I also like to produce music so it wasn’t going to help me there. I also have RX8 advanced so the features that come with it are already in RX. In the past I’ve used Logic Pro, Cakewalk…but ultimately I landed on Studio One. Love the interface, a ton of features, it’s playing with the big boys in terms of music production too.
    I’m curious to get SP’s opinions and perhaps he finds some stuff I was overlooking when researching and trying out the different DAW’s.
