Yeah... That seems to be this forum's curse.so...it's a Reaper thread now?
Maybe Mike should set up a Reaperward Derailment Zone, along the Drama Zone
I've used ProTools and loved it. But in my modest business, it's not sustainable.If you've "never seen or used Pro Tools," I don't think that's the ideal position from which to comment, even though I sort of agree with you.
It's a cost/value proposition that absolutely does not work for everyone. That said, the first round of PT stuff was over $10k, over 10 years ago, so it's much more affordable than that now.
...except for the subscription.
And sure, they've made some less expensive versions, as a response to the competition - with limitations the competition doesn't have.
But the equivalent of what cost $10k 10 years ago is not cheaper today, is it?
