It's a two sided coin.

I agree with you guys that any DAW that does not allow 3rd party apps is useless unless you are an absolute beginner and are learning from scratch. A limit to 16 or 24 tracks or making some of other features unavailable until you upgrade makes more sense.

On the other hand, a company has a right to do what they want with their product and the customer has the choice whether to buy it or not.

We all have our reasons for liking or disliking a particular product. Just look at the requested features thread and I'm sure the same thread is active on other DAW sites where their users are refering to advantages they see in S1. I guess the message is that you can't and won't please everyone, no matter how much you try.

I know there are some features in S1 that 'I' would like to see added or improved but does it mean that I will not use S1? No. As long as there are more +++s than ---s I'll keep on using it. I'll request the features that I'd like to have and if enough users request the same features they might be added.

In the meantime, I'll just keep telling anyone who asks that S1 is, to me, the best DAW out there right now IMHO.

It may very well be.

This is not an "I hate Studio One" thread.

It's an, "I don't know since VSTi isn't supported I'm not even going to give it a shot."

This was a huge discussion when version 1.1 came out. On the old forums, there were about 25 threads all complaining about the same thing.

I, myself, totally can see how this would benefit an Artist. It's not meant as a production tool, it's an introduction tool. For demos, quick recordings and scratch tracking for song ideas. That's how it was explained by Presonus back then.

From a business standpoint, it makes TOTAL sense. When you use Artist, and see how Studio One works, you're hooked. So in the end, this is how it is. Love it or leave it.
