What DAW do you use?

#1
I make music on the side. Nothing production worthy (yet), although some tracks will be coming out later this year. Been learning the ropes and trying to get my hands in on it. So far it's been interesting. 

I've used three over the years. Sonar X1 (back when it was a thing) was great, the included plugins and virtual instruments were fantastic. The interface was ehh.. 

Cubase was a little difficult to use, but had fantastic plugins and great presets. My mixes always were very good in cubase. Part of me wants to go back to using Cubase again just for the virtual instruments and plugins. 

And then there is logic, which I've fallen in love with. The presets are not as good and the virtual instruments are a little stranger, but the workflow is second to none. I've had very good results doing even more advanced editing related tasks. And flex is absolutely fantastic for audio editing (time fixing, pitch editing, and so forth). 

Anyone else ever play around with digital audio workstations? Which ones do you use?

Musically I'm a Zero, to put it nicely ;-), listening to music yes, but doing it yourself would only make noise
according to the motto, whoever plays the loudest wins

Until spotify came along, that was very true. The loudness war dictated pretty much everything that happened in music for many decades.

They would hire engineers to spend many hours of work just to try to get a record to be perceived as 2% louder. It squashed all of the music from that era and made everything sound overworn in a sense.
