Then choose whichever one makes the most sense to you that you can afford. Reaper just makes sense to me. The guy that speaks for the new owners seems really determined to fix many of the issues that some users experience. If you knew exactly what you wanted to do with it I might be able to help you more. My personal favorite is Cubase, but I'd love to try Logic. Reaper does not have many of the features that make Ableton better at electronic music, and it lacks a lot of features that I find to be key. But it probably won't improve your workflow.
I think Sonar Platinum and Reaper are better than Pro Tools. But I can tell you that between protools, logic, Cubase, and Reaper, there is hardly a difference here. I happen to like the way Pro Tools works and always have—it suits my production style for the gigs I usually do. Sometimes the best features aren't terribly obvious. They are simple like me and I am comfortable in a combined Windows and Linux environment so the cross-platform interoperability is critical. I thought it was the worst recording program ever until my job got Logic pro X… ugh.
Is the sound of my music fine in Audacity or would it benefit from upgrading to Pro Tools? The only reason I say this is because of the wealth of good sounding software instruments it comes with. Ideal User Electronic musicians, first and foremost. I was a Cakewalk user for many years, started exploring other options in the last 4 years or so. Pro Tools Logic Pro X As you continue on in your music career, you will find what tools work best your workflow. I've been where you are and I upgraded largely because I wanted more toys to play with, but now that I'm a little more experienced I'd say that effects are the least compelling reason to make a change. The manual is thick, detailed, and daunting.
How is this any different than protools? Searching for new converts, PreSonus have also made it easy to try and buy Studio One. Since that was what came with the interface. The times we have used other things, had all sorts if issues with converters. Visit our Wiki to view the full breakdown of what each is for. Love what it can do and I am ever finding ways to utilize all of its abilities. Good enough is the mortal enemy of good. Pro Tools is no better than logic, ableton, ect.
But i don't really know if it's necessary though. Cubase was far more difficult getting up and running, but now that I'm familiar navigating is a non-issue. I make them fade into different eq's and high pass filters of themselves to create effects. What it seems to come down to ate two factors: it's fast because you can do everything with a keyboard, and because everyone else uses it. If so, what would be different? It could also be a case of you preferring what you're used too.
Not trying to start a war here. Cons Compared to Logic Pro X, which is similarly featured, Cubase is the more expensive option. A wise man would just use the tool best suited for the task at hand. You don't have to use it, but there's no reason to stop unless you have a specific reason to. I kind of need to pick one and stick with it because other band members also use it, and need to be self sufficient. This is invaluable to my workflow. And since it would just be some pre-sets that could be modified or discarded, there would be no loss of the flexibility and customizability that is unique to Reaper.
Ponzoni - August 3, 2017 yes! The hype pitches it as a killer app, as full-featured as the big boys but with the cutting edge thinking of a new product. If you want to work professionally in the industry, you must know ProTools. Even Pro tools Expert are quite open about how bad pro tools is for tracking for this reason. Pros Simplicity is the major selling point here. This post originally appeared on by our friends at Soundfly. It truly is a comprehensive and well-rounded solution. I do live concert recording.
No track types, just double-click to add a track, drag-and-drop folder management, insanely flexible routing. And I really don't know how they can make it that flexible and powerful without it being bloatware. And let us not forget that the reason something becomes the industry standard have sometimes little to do with it being the best program or format and everything with other factors. And it's been an absolute nightmare. I use it all the time to edit individual audio files. Most aspects of Logic are counter-intuitive, like all Apple software these days. But i reaaaaaaaaly hate all that freezing of tracks and waiting for renders and stuff like that.
Links to your music are only permitted. For those who want to test it, can download a 60 days fully-operational demo version of Reaper. Pt for us is just switch on and run. Thanks for the great review! It's useful for feeling out grooves or editing drums. Then depending on your needs and budget, you will choose the product that suits you best.
