Logic is my primary, Live is my secondary alternative.

Sorry chaps I missed, DP, Samplitude, Nuendo, Radar and probably some more. I can't seem to edit the list.

I really wanted to see PT vs Cubase vs Logic as I reckon that amongst the general population PT is not way ahead of all the others, as it is generally assumed to be.

You have to take into account the forum demographic as well. Here, I expect plenty of Logic, Cubase, and Sonar users - the regular pro daws. I expect there are less PT users here than those.

Other forums have a predominance of Pro Tools and Logic.

It would be nice to have a global running poll on the internets, rather than limit it to a particular forum...

You left a lot of options off the poll.


I use Sequoia which is the big brother to Samplitude.

But you also left off SADiE, Pyramix, Wavelab, Nuendo and Audition :beamup:

Logic Studio, Cubase 5 & Pro Tools 8 depending on clients. But cubase for my own projects (only cos that's what I was brought up on).

Logic, Live, and DP, after being a long time Cubase user gave up on Steinberg products on my Macs, SX3 does play nice on my PC though.

Rule one for any and every market suvey is to NOT name any brands. There are probably over one hundred computer-based recording programmes and you cannot name them all and by naming a few, you are leading the question.

Also many people have more than one. We have three in the recording studio and two in post / mastering.

The largest market is the bundled SW market for PCs. Apples may be widely used in media applications, but they are almost unknown in general office work and completely unuseable for technical work.

I'm surprised there aren't more Sonar users such as myself. :frown:

I started my DAW journey with Steinbergs Pro24 on the Atari ST.
Then began a new life with Opcodes Vision / Vision DSP / Studio Vision Pro.
After Gibson killed that excellent product I tried to like Cubase, but I never got on speaking terms with it...

Found Logic 5 and realized that it's reputation of being hard to learn were overstated and fell in love...

Now on Logic 8 and loving every minute of it!

I use Nuendo 3 a lot. It has a brilliant audio engine, easy to use and unlimited track count!

Second, I use Sonar 8.
