I haven't decided yet. I'm waiting to see what comes out at Namm. I still have PT up and running on an Mbox to do small recording projects, but I've also been testing Nuendo, DP and Logic to see how I like working with them. We'll see.
I'm not digging Logic Pro so far.. the idea of connecting multiple computers to share CPU is great, but the functionality of it is a bit cumbersome. So far, nothing is as user-friendly as PT.BCrowell said:I keep hearing, from more and more, that LOGIC is THE way to go, especially if you've already bought good Pre's. I just don't have a new mac to run it & try it out. Though I've also heard, the learning curve on it is HUGE!
I haven't tried Sonar. PT is cake to use and to most people's ears, sounds as good and better than anything else. Most people don't know what to listen for anyway. Try it and see if you like it better than Sonar.Mart2005 said:Hello Dave,
I've been recording for the last few years with either SONAR 3 or SONAR 4.
I think it works pretty well.
Is there a huge difference between SONAR and Pro Tools?
Should I upgrade?
Hi, why are you saying that Cubase isn't a good choice?? My guitar teacher used it before Nuendo came. And if I say that my guitar teacher is Ihsahn from Emperor, it speaks for itself that you definitely can make som great stuff on it!!Val said:I personally dont like Sonar really, and only one major studio uses Pro Tools in the cities around me, and its not even fully built yet.
Pro Tools really is top of the range though, even if a little pricey. Logic is cool too, but I found that if I added too many tracks it would crash, usually a PC problem but one I havent experienced using other software.
If you're new to recording I'd say try your hand at Cubase. Its not the best, but its a great way to get started and you can still do some great stuff on it.
