Multiple DAWs

There’s been a fair amount of discussion lately in M&M classes as well as in Office Hours about getting proficient in using multiple DAWs. I’ve been working in Digital Performer for years until Danny and the classes introduced me to Cubase which for the time being I’ve adopted now as my main DAW for mixing.

Here’s an interesting article by Craig Anderton making the case for multiple DAWs:


If nothing else, it is good to have a grasp on multiple kinds of software because it makes you more marketable. For example, one DAW may be more popular in the east coast US than the west coast US. If you find yourself working for different companies, you’ll likely have to work with the software they prefer.
