    Now that I think of it, I may be mixing ProTools with Logic. Take my previous comments with a few grains of salt if that's the case.

    Here is a nice thread asking about Studio One Pro 5:

    I appreciate the offer if I EVER get to that point I may reach out on that.

    As to ProTools, no I've never used it. That's Mac-only, correct? I cannot cite my source so this could be a glitch in memory, but I THINK I've read Mac users having issues with Presonus. That might have been a older version though, or it might have been another program completely. I'm not kidding when I say getting older sucks =\

    You might thumb around for more experienced information. That site is mostly for orchestral stuff using virtual instruments but there are a LOT of sub-forums there. One or two are dedicated to software and hardware conversations. I learned a lot there over the last few months. I believe a lot of those users are dedicated ProTool users so you might find something useful. A smaller segment use Presonus (both Windows and Mac).

    I think it boils down to personality and how you interactive with the UI. For me, Studio One Pro was just so intuitive. Everything just made sense as to where things were. That said, there are users in that forum link above that absolutely hate it and can't find anything they need when they need it.

    As far as I know though, ProTools has been around in the Mac world forever. I would imagine that it has most of the bugs long since worked out.

    Oh, wow. I didn't catch that part of it. Could be interesting if you plan on doing live stuff. I've never used something like that. I've thought about that Presonus Atom just for how cheap it is relative to other stuff. I had looked at the Maschine stuff and the Akai MPC lines but figured it's all just too much for me to learn. The Atom seemed smaller scale, and fits the Presonus ecosystem I've built at home. Mostly though, I'm scared I'm just becoming a collector of gear lol. Maybe if I get more invested down the road.

    Good deal on the search results and website. I'm glad you're motivated. I'm glad you're keeping me posted too as your motivation might infect me sooner or later to get off my ass and do something too MY goal, for now, is to set up a streaming channel covering songs. I figure that should give me more practical experience on video and instruments covering other people's work to get back into shape so to speak. I've been "planning" that passively for a year now though so who knows. rofl.

    It's good you've established a habit with this. For me, that's the hardest part. Just getting into practice of STARTing something.
Avengers: Endgame   6/20/19
Avengers: Endgame is, at best, revisionist history; it wants you convinced that the MCU can be better than it

Blade Runner   6/19/19
"More human than human" is a motto that begs more questions than it answers

Spirited Away   6/19/19
Spirited Away is also one of the few animated films where you surrender nothing when faced with the choice bet

TRON: Legacy   3/13/11
This flick will spawn new and grander films to follow
