the packages they try to sell for three, four, five hundred dollars act like what one usually would expect from a $20 shareware app. it's hard to get them to do anything, never mind to feel like an environment for creating MUSIC.
i mean i guess they're not so much for music as for some hellspawned idea like "profession audio production." and that's what they feel like, like you're "professionally producing audio." it's awful.
a lot of people who are struggling with these things, i think would be better off with an old tascam. those have really, really realistic tape simulation, folks!
if you're thinking of spending $200 on recording software, look into a used VS-880! i'm serious!
You may be right.
The only downside to a Workstation like a Tascam or a
Roland VS 2480 or Akai Dps 24 is that they are PRIMITIVE when trying to work comprehensively with LOOPS.
Sure, you can use loops, but you can't really really use Loops as the Tempo matching and Key matching, is a JOKE.
WHEN a Standalone DAW Maker finally figures out that ADVANCED AND SEEMLESS LOOP INTERGRATION is Necessary and quits putting just enough PRIMITIVE looping features on their machines to cause CONSTANT AND ENDLESS FRUSTRATION, the PC // MAC Virtual Studio "all in one" HYPE is going to be hurting.
