I kinda left DAWing ( ) for the last 6-12 months and I'm getting back at it.
I used cubase a few years back, than switched to Sonar X1, and than had a break.
I like some things about Sonar X1-the new interface and pro-channel are cool features,
but it was also clumsy, not always user friendly and ofen buggy.
I remember trying out StudioOne v1 and I liked it but thought it was a lil' premature and lacked some important features,
Never the less I liked the fact that it's a modern product and not a 20-years long update & upgrade,
I think you can really tell by how if functions and how "friendly" the software is.
Now I'm thinking whether to go Sonar X2, StudioOne 2.5, or maybe something else.
I mostly record jazz, funk and rock using live guitars and a midi controller for piano, strings, sometimes bass etc.
I also have an electronic drum set I use with Superior Drummer 2.0.
I would love some thoughts on the touchy DAW X Vs. DAW Y subject, thanks.
