Headache Rating: is there a winner amongst DAW’s?

This issue seems to be up, and Live Pro doesn’t seem to be in the works, so; Is there a hands-down winner for GETTING IT DONE WITH THE LEAST PROBLEMOS? Finishing complex productions, with the least bugs, hair-pulling, and wasted time. Say, mixing 10 MIDI tracks and 20 audio. And perhaps Rewiring Liv...

my highly caffeinted response would be:

get a cheap pressure sensitive 3-octave keyboard, assign each octave of keys to a different CC, throw it on the ground and voila! 3 pedals! you could even color-duct-tape each of the 3 octaves together into one mechanism.

I too had unusual behaviour when using a cheap (30$) USB hub. first of all , the spaghetti wires and the small and light design of the hub, was awkward and ugly. second, i would get midi annomolies, things going weird in AUDIO/MIDI setup in my P-book. or devices not being recognized. it also seemed ...

yes you need to hack to do this. no Live does not currently support overdub-style looping. But it CAN be done. i haven't messed yet with "midi translator" software. maybe my eyes will be opened when i do 8O Live 7 will finally cater to the loopers of the world!! Note: with the mouse, Live's realtime...

get a bus powered midi-interface. this will take up one of your USB connections.

you can get 5 in 5 out , or 2x2, whatever you want. MOTU is good.

i would like a midi interface that connects via my soundcards' midi in/out, and powers off a regular A/C., instead of USB.

i always keep my power cables and computer cords in one bag and my instrument and midi cables in another. plug all my power first , then the cables.

good luck on your buying process. i'm always a fan of hardware myself, it is more intimate. but software is more powerful. if you do buy reason, i will sell you mine for cheap. that includes everything in the original box. you also get the authorization card which is really what you're paying for, w...

Should I get a sampler or Korg Triton Extreme?

I want a new sampler. I’ve tried so many, and still my beloved and I have not found each other. Or should I get the king of romplers, the Korg Triton Extreme? (would eventually get a sampler as well). I creamed when I heard about Ableton’s sampler, and saddened when I learned it was more synth than ...
