    I'm thinking of upgrading my Pro tools 8 system, I'm not sure if I should stick with Pro tools anymore.
    What daw's are you guys using and why?
    Mainly I'm recording/ mixing audio.
    So what's your opinion.
    Semi professional use.

    Thanks in advance

    As others have said, Reaper. Only real downside is that the stock plugins aren't as fancy or high-quality as some others, but 9 times out of 10 they get the job done and there are free plugins out there if you really need something it doesn't have as far as basic stuff like metering, EQ, compression, limiting, etc.

    Don't be a dick.

    Isn't that the entire purpose of this forum? To give snarky answers to perceivably dumb questions? :lol:
    I'm joking of course, but the OP's question could easily have been solved with a quick Google search comparing various DAWs

    Audacity is the true test of your skills as a musician because editing with it is impossible. It is only for the most pro of pros.

    I really need to learn how to use Reaper as I suspect I'll be switching later on this year.

    I´m using logic pro x. used reaper for a while but prefer logic. but reaper is a good one too. if you´re starting new i´d probably suggest reaper. they got a fair price policy and it´s getting better and better.

    i never used pro tools, that´s some of the industry standard but what sucks up is their new subscription model. i would´t support that.
