How is it 'insanely' expensive? It's only $100 more than DP and Logic. It's cheaper than the full version of Live.Esus wrote:You'll still need an iLok.
It's still INSANELY expensive.
MIDI functionality still sucks compared to most other DAWs (DP, for one).
This is why it's great that they've finally addressed all the things that people have been wanting fixed for years. I've been using PT since just before 6 came out and love the workflow, and could pretty much mix in my sleep with it. I've got all the keyboard shortcuts in muscle memory.Esus wrote:I'm not bashing Pro Tools just because, but after 13+ years, I've dealt with enough "why can't they fix ______?" issues that at best were unanswered, and at worst were ignored. My work takes me to different facilities, and I have to know Pro Tools to do my job. It's a necessary evil. I'm old enough to where I'm not in the mood to learn a new system (although Soundtrack Pro and DP have lots of nice features, and their price tags are definitely more attractive).
Anyway, I suppose I should have expected that any thread on VSE is gonna turn into a bitchfest from people who don't even know anything about or use whatever the subject matter is. Thanks to the people who actually responded to this topic properly, the people who are bitching sorry but I'm gonna have to delete your posts to clean things up. Go read the rules of Sound Production before you post in here again, we don't tolerate that kind of c**p in here.
