I'm still waiting for this!Being able to take what you hear inside your mind and transfer it with current available technology is a quite a challenge, more or less depending on ones own skill. The future should see Mind Transference become a reality augmented with options to make a few changes. And then with one click transfer to distributor, music supervisors, publicist, media and social networks, this whole process from mind to worldwide availability is so much more efficient.
Yes.Are many DAW users really that defensive?
Because this is a relatively composer dominant forum and there are more professionals here. People have discussions, so what crowd a forum attracts has a huge impact on the nature and content of discussion threads therein.I think I've seen more threads and comments here from people who consider another DAW than from people who get defensive about the one (or those) they currently use.
This pretty much sums up the whole point of this thread.Generally, the more "underdog" a product is, the more it tends to veer towards this defensiveness. The users also tend to be more evangelical about their DAW choices.
We also have to factor in the cultural and socio-economic aspects at play.
I work in music retail so I have to be fluent in many of them. And I’ve been at this a loooooong time, starting with Steinberg 12 on the Atari back in 1988.I have:
Studio One 5
I use S1 the majority of the time and use the Rack from Reason. I’m not particularly loyal to any of these DAWs.But a lot of people are and defend their choice with upmost vigour. Why is this?
What do people gain from dissing other peoples choices?
They are just tools at the end of the day.
