I'm still relatively new to the DAW world, but I really enjoy Studio One.
It's easy to use and does everything I need it to do.

I've used Pro Tools and Apple Logic in the past, and I've found Studio One can really hold it's own.
I'm no expert in the world of audio engineering, but if you're looking for a very easy program to use that's affordable and sounds great, I recommend Studio One. I'm very happy with the results I'm getting from it so far. I use it as a writing tool, recording, editing, mixing, and (now) mastering. It's a pretty nifty little program (especially with the drag and drop option. You don't even have to leave the home screen).

But like I said, I'm no expert on recording.
I personally didn't like Pro Tools or Logic because of the complexity within the programs. I was able to navigate my way through both programs, but with Studio One it took me no time at all to learn how to operate the program. I truly recommend this to anyone whose looking for an easy to use DAW.

I'm still using Sony ACID Pro and Sound Forge. I've tried lite versions of Cubase and Ableton, but I guess you work best with what you know. It looks like Sony is never going to upgrade ACID Pro again. I plan to buy a new computer soon and I'm bound to run into compatability issues sooner or later so I'm looking for something else. Ableton is popular but pricey and I'm not completely sold on Reaper. FL Studio (the old Fruity Loops) is selling surprisingly well. Not sure where to turn.

I have Studio One, but prefer using my old standby Cool Edit Pro (which I believe is the forerunner to Adobe Audition). It's not the most advanced, but is very full-featured for my needs and extremely stable. My songwriting partner has ProTools and Logic, but seems to prefer working with Logic.

I've been a professional ProTools recording and mixing engineer for 20 years. As a film and T.V. re-recording mixer, there is no other viable option. I have friends who use logic or digital performer on a hobby level that swear they are great tools, but I've not had fist hand experience on them.

My first foray into DAW was 6 weeks ago and I bought Mixcraft 6...
I use Focusrite Scarliett 2i2 as my interface.
So far so good but I have nothing to compare it to....

I used to record in Logic (PC), then the band I was in at the time imploded, thus access was lost. For the last few years, I've run PreSonus Studio One. Remarkably crackly at a relatively low number of tracks - granted, I don't run it on the world's best computer - but financial considerations aside, I like it because I loooove the "Ampire" guitar amp plug-in.

I pre-amp the signal with an old works-if-you-kick-it V-Amp 2, and then fiddle with the Ampire settings/simulations.

The whole package was 200 bucks. Prolly be trial versions out there.. I'm way outdated, probably, but I get any and every sound I want out of it. YMMV.

Many years ago I used Cubase 4 and then left recording out for years.

Recently back into it again and still with Cubase (9.5 pro). But an awful lot to learn!

Logic Pro X. Purely because I've been using Logic ever since Version 2 (1995) and I really, really cannot be bothered to learn another DAW when I use a Mac and Logic does what I need.

And you do it very well. That tune of yours 'Then You' (is it yours?) has a really great feel to it. It's crying out for a great lyric.

Recently started using Studio One Pro after many years fighting with a Fostex VF160. Might still use the Fostex for tracking live shows, but I don't think I'll go back to doing mixdowns with it.

Thanks, Jonny. Yes, I compose a lot of my own stuff. I play what I like! I've actually got lyrics for that and tried a couple takes. I'm not a vocalist, and I did not like those takes, so I left them out for the time being. I've continued to practice that piece for months, and I've got to re-record it. I guess I'll try the vocals again, and add some blues harp for a chorus or two. Thanks again!

REAPER. I think all the reasons have been discussed. [thumbup]

Wow this thread started in 2011 and is still getting replies. I guess I will jump into this and give my 2 cents. Just recently I have jumped up from a boss br600 digital 8 track that I have had since about 1999 or something. It records on to 100mb zip disks. I was actually looking at getting an old 4 track recorder that used cassette tapes because the hard drive on my boss br600 acts stupid sometimes. It is okay for throwing stuff down in a pinch and has some pretty cool effects though. The studio I play at has some system called nuendo. I thought I would never ever get used to trying to learn anything because to me it looked so complicated. I went to the local guitar shop here in town and they told me everything was online now and they did not have anything like that for sale. I was kind of bummed out. I have always heard protools was complicated. Heck it all is complicated if you have no idea where to start. One guy threw something on to my computer called FL studio or something. The format was not familiar and I did not even mess with it. I was used to looking at the timeline scrolling template on the screen at the studio I go to and I wanted something more similar to that. Well the past couple of weeks I found a guy selling off a protools 9 package with an interface. I hooked it up and at first nothing made sense. So I took the time and loaded a template that looked like what they use in the studio I frequent and now I am having a freaking blast. It is no where near as complicated as I thought it would be. I should have done this years ago. Now I think I will be able to send a wav file of guitar tracks by email to the studio without having to go there. That is the reason I even got into the computer studio thing. Man it is a whole new world and with endless options. I am very happy. I can see why there are so many independent labels out there now. I do not know exactly what I am doing by any means just yet but I can record, mix, add delays or reverb to tracks, cut parts out, adjust eq on tracks, add fades at the end and edit with it and have had it set up less than a week. This is pretty cool. I guess I am way behind on some things....sorry I may have rambled on a bit!
