Same poll on Gearslutz was much different results..

I put SX but wasn't sure...
I track in Pro Tools on Mac and Mix in SX on PC. That's my Fav Daw setup right now.

Plus I use PT's for TDM plugins while I'm mixing in SX... So then I'm really using both. Sort of.

Great info resource! Helps my decision enormously.
Surprised ProTools isn't higher up on the list though.

Altho Zynewave Podium was only released 3 years ago (2004), it has been in development since 1990 (17 years).

I've been looking for an affordable DAW that simply enables making music. I found Podium and never looked back. Its more 'logical' but its not 'live'. It is unique, very stable and super flexible, indeed perhaps too flexible?

I took liberty here to cut and paste a short description of Podium here:

"Podium offers a unique hierarchic mixing engine that integrates audio recording, VST plugins and external MIDI and audio gear. Configuration of plugins and external hardware are encapsulated in an object based project structure, which hides the technical complexities when you want to focus on musical inspiration.

Advanced features includes 64-bit mixing, multiprocessor support, surround sound, integrated sound editor, preset librarian and spline curve automation of plugin, MIDI and mixer parameters. The number of supported devices, plugins, tracks, channels and mixer busses are practically unlimited. All this is presented in a stylish and customizable user interface.

Development concentrates on quality and stability. Software updates are released frequently and are planned with the involvement of the user community."



Oh, and feature updates along with the very rare bug fix are released every two to three weeks at zero cost to registered users.

Thanks for yer attention
:wink:

Finally have DP5.12

Post by AMD » 01 Sep 2007, 23:11

I tried the Logic Express 30 day demo found on these pages (thanks) and liked the sound quality but found the gui not for me plus cost of moving up to Logic Pro with Pro 8? on horizon ruled it out. Had earlier Cubase SE1 Studio Case and SE3 and was aware of Steinberg being bought by Yamaha so scrap Apple support and no fixes for SX3/SE3 but Cubase 4 and I'd had it with bait and switch. I tried Tracktion 2 and was somehow confused with the Fisher Price look. So since I had 4 programs eligible for MOTU's upgrade including Audiodesk I got DP5.11 and downloaded 5.12. I quickly was made aware that DP is orders of magnitude more complex than Audiodesk so I got the MacAudiolab DVD and have been reviewing that. Also found that unless DP is set up ultra lean my iMacG5/PPC/2Ghz/2GB would hiccup which didn't bode well for many tracks or Vi's. So having just survived undiagnosed appendicitis with burst appendix and 7" Samurai scar I said WTF and ordered a new Intel Core Duo iMac with 4GBRam and am chugging along with no hiccups which really hurt when the staples are still in. So I am now 100% commited to DP5 and hope I get up to speed before this rig gets obsolete.
