I also don’t like the fact that all digidesign products only work with pro tools. Not a good idea at all.
that is the ONLY complaint I have. mainly just in case I wanted to upgrade my interface. Digidesign path, I would have to get the interface along with the HD version, which is software and their DSP card.
Vs Logic, just use it and get an Apogee interface.
My picks are Pro Tools and Logic, I think those are easier to learn than Cubase. Sonar is decent too, but in 4th for me.
So far PT hasn’t hindered my creative side, no quarrels there.
