Is Innovation Dying In DAW Development?
Over the years there have been a growing number of Pro Tools users who have felt at some point that Pro Tools has been playing a long game of catch up when it comes to introducing “new” features. When I refer to “new” I mean features that are new to Pro Tools, not innovative new features that haven’t been seen before in other DAWs.
I read a number of blogs as a daily exercise. ProTools Expert is one of them, even though I abandoned ProTools at version 8 (Got Logic Pro X) and never looked back.
I use Studio One (now version 4), Harrison MixBus, and Logic Pro X (with the occasional GarageBand for good measure). I find that I learn *A LOT* about DAWs and recording and mixing when I try to find the similarity between them along with how to do “the same thing”.
I think there’s plenty of innovation left — Cubase, FL Studio, Sonar, LIVE!
It’s all good.
