    Avid Sibelius 8 - "Still a big mess but now you pay more for it"

    11/09/17

    Decade-old bugs not patched, same chaotic layout, still hundreds of plugins to sift through to find a workaround for a bug or a feature that should already be in the core program, the transport is still so rudimentary that it's practically useless, s…

    Avid Pro Tools First - "Free Pro Tools | First vs Studio One 3 Prime "

    02/10/17

    I have been looking at the 'free' versions of leading DAW lately. I owned a PT 11 and have been working in it for my video production requirement though I am only a 'self learned engineer'. However, I could produce outstanding sound track part with t…

    Avid Pro Tools 12 - "Pro tools 12 : an outrage"

    11/15/15

    Avid resolutely keep with their delirious policy with Pro Tools 12 as a permanent internet connection of the workstation is now mandatory, which is only a thinly disguised way to spy even more on users. As a reminder, this update is out while version…

    Avid Sibelius 7 - "Not Perfect, but still better than Finale"

    01/03/15

    I finally bailed on Finale after several years of working with it. (It was the standard program at my university so it's what I started with) Thank goodness I did. I now use Sibelius for any score or lead sheet I need to produce. I'm not saying th…

    Avid Pro Tools 11 - "Wicked Fast!"

    10/15/14

    I got Pro Tools 11 for free because I bought 10 when I was a student at LA Recording School. This was pretty sweet. I had it installed on my 2012 MacBook Pro with 4GB of Ram, and on the 5400 RPM 500 GB internal hard drive. I had no problems with the …

    Avid Pro Tools 11 - "No more bouncing in real time!"

    09/27/14

    Thats right, offline bounce lets you turn your track into a mixdown at up to 150X real time! Major selling point for Pro Tools 11 for sure. This is especially appealing to those who do audiobook or podcasting work. Not all is sunshine and rainbows wi…

    Avid Pro Tools 11 - "Finally, 64 bits"

    09/24/14

    Hassle-free installation on my PC running Win7 64 bits (obviously). The most complicated part is transferring the license to the iLock lol No incompatibilities with my pc nor soundcard (Motu 828mk3 Hybrid). The only 2 plug-ins not recognized are R…

    Avid Pro Tools 10 - "Good upgrade, but too expensive for the features you get."

    07/31/14

    Simply put, Pro Tools is a must have for any serious music producer or/and audio engineer. It has been the standard software for audio productions around the world for more than a decade now. It's compatible with Windows XP, Mac Os,and many more, so …

    Avid Sibelius 7 - julian_r7's review

    07/30/14

    As an arranger and composer I've been faced multiple times with the task of choosing a writing software, and time after time I've chosen Sibelius. The seventh version was a little hard to get used to, though, as major changes were introduced in the i…

    Avid Sibelius 7 - "Just a notation software."

    07/24/14

    One of the first things to notice, it's that the program will take some time to install it (it requires a minimum of 40 gigabytes free space) and make sure that you have a better hardware than the one specified on the minimum requirements section, ot…
