Re: Should i learn how to use other DAWs?
It's all about your workflow, however learning other DAWs it's crucial if you want to get into professional audio industry.
Most recording, film, game studios rely on Pro Tools and Logic, unfortunately. Audio editors such as Audition and Sound Forge are also widely used and I'm suggesting trying out some of them for basic/complex audio editing because they can offer much more than some of DAWs (if you don't have Audacity, you're already losing). The problem here is that Pro Tools is a dated piece of shit but still exists as an industry standard because they were the first and they're doing a great job of being a stable piece of software, which is very good for recording. That's why it still exists. Logic is only limited to Macs and has many flaws too and I'm hoping it will die soon as its newest version X suck ass but its price range and functionality might suit your needs and can be added to "Fun DAWs list". Ableton, Bitwig, Fl Studio, Reason, Cubase are all cool to try out if you're interested only in music making and don't care about the rest. Different workflows, especially Reason, you might like something more about one than other, each have something to offer, for better or worse.
Actually, I'm suggesting learning Reaper. I really hope it will kill Pro Tools because it's so much cheaper, has relevant updates that actually fix shit, does great job in general and company doesn't act like a bunch of douchebags.
So yeah, learn Reaper so we could all destroy evil Pro Tools.
