Lol. S1.2 has crashed for me 3 times in two days doing nothing of significance. Idle CPU hovering 9-12% with one instance of Ampire open. Not very reassuring at all. Bloating of some sort will have to occur in order for the product to mature. Its early days still with a lot more work to make it a sensible alternative to other offerings.

Am currently doing the rounds looking for an alternative to GarageBand, and I have to say that S1 Artist just does not compare.

Working with Professional. Never looked at Artist because of lacking MP3 support, lacking plugin support and no 64-bit support of the audio engine...

Exactly, both of which GB has along with other things as well. S1 will have to bloat to some extent to offer better and more competitive and compelling reasons to divide up the distinctions between their three different versions. The mix they have for the the Artist version at the moment is just wrong. There is no distinction, no advantage to even consider it as a serious challenge for entry level recording.

I have just activated a Sequel3 trial. Will see what Steinberg has to offer.

There's a market for Artist. I know quite a few that are happy working with it. Producer was created because of customer demand for a version between Artist and Pro. For me, there's no other DAW that can hold a candle to S1 Professional.

But thank god we all have our opinions, preferences and bias.

Every other DAW is just plain wrong.

Definitely. Its my opinion though that those in charge of understanding the market place that the Artist version is competing in have got it wrong.

I have no problem with this version. But again they have misunderstood the market place and have priced themselves to high.

Can't be the bestest ever without bloat from every daw on the planet. Please realign your priorities in this race to the bestest ever finish line.


I agree Studio One Pro is the best DAW. I do not use any others anymore (although i do own others). I just did not realize there was a race.

So... anyone who actually bought it is... well... just not too bright? Or (dare I say) maybe their context isn't the same as yours?

Anyway... I recall when I phoned DirectTV to tell them to shut my service off because I was switching to Dish Network. The rep actually said to me on the phone... "They're no competition for us..." to which I politely replied...

"Obviously they are since I'm switching over?"

Thanks in advance

That is what I am doing now. Thank you. I was hoping maybe there was something else I was missing. If you don't know of any other easy way that is good enought for me

I was being a bit sarcastic there actually.

There really is no "best DAW" (imo) only "the best DAW for you"... or me, or anyone else. The rest of it all is well... ... fun to observe anyway. It's the best product for me even though I could easily make a list of some things that some others do better.

So the race to the "bestest ever" doesn't have an actual finish line. It's like those mechanical rabbits at the Greyhound races... it keeps moving and the dogs never get it.

Not sure what you are getting at here. Very happy to have a discussion and be persuaded to see things differently. As mentioned before, I am looking for an alternative for GarageBand, which is free as well.

To qualify my statement, GB has...

1. Export to MP3
2. Full 3rd party AU integration.
3. M-Audio's DirectLink integration for extended use of faders and knobs on Axiom and Oxygen KB's.
4. Plug and Play with Roland vDrums.
5. GarageBand recognizes my FireStudio Mobile automatically, where as Studio 1 needs me to also open Universal Control in order to hear anything
6. GB's software instruments use Logics sound engine. They are marginally to noticeably better sounding than those bundled with S1 Artist.

I do not enjoy some of GB's limited MIDI editing features, but there are work arounds.

Like I say, I am fully prepared to move on from GB. However, like for like, GB offers significantly more than S1 Artist does with easier use and integration of standard products both hardware and software. Just a fact.

Sounds like a plan, sticking with GB, for you.

I was only suggesting that I'm not sure how your particular context (what you currently need in a host and how Artist doesn't fit that for you, which isn't uncommon) leads to you also conclude that because of that it's just totally wrong for the entire market and also fails against the competition in all cases.

That's a bit of a leap with no factual support (sales data from it or the competition) and suggesting that your context is the whole market... when of course, some people don't care about any of those things you listed.

Best regards man. That's all I meant. No harm, no foul.
