There is no best. It's whatever's good for you.


Amen.

I like Fruity Loops, but it really is a matter of personal preference.

Audio: Pro Tools
MIDI: Cubase
Both but slightly inferior: Logic
And for Drum programming: Fxpansion's BFD plug-in.
FM Synthesis: NI's FM7
Guitar amp modelling software: NI's Guitar Rig 3

I like Cubase better than ProTools. Maybe it's because I'm more familiar with it, but I haven't seen ProTools do anything that I wish Cubase did, or did better/easier.

Add the superior sequencing implementation of Cubase, and the sophisticated scoring capabilities, and "we have a winner."

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

ProTools LE is far overrrated, the only advantages ProTools offers over the competition comes along with the highly expensive HD systems. LE is IMO worse than the other big DAW options, and is limited to the somewhat shoddy ProTools lower end interfaces.

I prefer to use Sonar, and place much more emphasis on outboard gear than the software itself.

Logic Studio 8 is amazing - I like it better than Pro-tools, so much so I sold Pro Tools.
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

I just find protools straight forward and easy to use. But i only use it when i'm only working with audio files. Like in a band recording.

But if i wanted to produce something electronic that involved both audio and MIDI, then i wouldn't go near protools. Pro Tools is horrible with MIDI.

Cubase is the way to go with MIDI all the way!
cubase+Reason is all you need to create the most amazing electronic tracks.

And i haven't tried much of Logic so i can't tell much bout it.
