You're right, S1 is ugly. I'm not a S1 user, but I demo'd it a couple of years ago. I didn't like the look of it at all. I don't like the stock Reaper look either, but at least Reaper has themes.

IMHO, a big update with many new features, alot of those new features are midi related.
Cause i am a real "midi guy", i like those features alot, targetting on instant inspiration
during midi composing.

The last weeks i was a beta tester for S1 version 4.5 and i must say i am pretty impressed.
And it's GUI is so much better to my eyes than Reaper's "misty" GUI ..(on mac).

It's nice that they caught up with other DAWs in that regard. When you're zooming way in it's important.

Not just "(on mac)" Windows as well. Excellent update, switched 4+ years ago and no complaints.

I've been using both Reaper and Studio One for several years. Reaper just works for me and is customizable and efficient-I can record sound on sound, use MPE, midi guitar, etc...with no issues. Studio One is easy to use and has a lot of cool features, instruments, effects and eye candy. If I could have only one daw, it would be Reaper, though.

My choices are Studio One 4.5, Reaper 6.97, Cubase 10.
Almost ready with my new PC to make music.
Currently Studio One is the choice because I feel that ARA is implemented best. I would like for anyone with Both to chime in and comment. Are they both equally implementing ARA?

These three DAW's are so good and this is why I am having such indecisiveness.

S1, excellent ARA, ease of learning, Multi-touch capable!
Reaper, ARA. very flexibility and customize-able. MPE.
Cubase, will get ARA soon. Midi fx and Editing. MPE. Excellent List Editor. Chord Progression assist. Unfortunate A couple important issues that S1 and Reaper do not have.

If REAPER natively added the mastering project mode like Studio One has, but made it actually useful like the WaveLab montage, Cockos would have a huge hit on their hands.

I had to use Studio One for 1 semester in my mastering class and the mastering mode felt like a toy. Luckily I convinced the school to get WaveLab in there.

Oooo! audio montage!
An old video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xK3tHr92VUY&t=15s
looks fantastic!!!
I would love something similar.
I believe Samplitude has something similar.

Yeah, that is an old/bad video of WaveLab 7. WaveLab 9.5 is great now and the montage is 100% essential to a good mastering workflow IMO.

Samplitude and most mastering focused DAWs have something similar. My requests to add this to REAPER went nowhere.

I went with Cubase when they put the 50% offers up last month and super happy, crossgraded.

I love Studio One, but lack of Midi SysEx and Poly AT makes it a killer for my outboard gear. Cubase ARA implementation obviously not there, but Variaudio is very good for single note audio (Vocals/Bass parts). I already prefer working with Variaudio over Melodyne for vocals, but generally only use slight correction for vocals anyway, my main use of such tools is to study what's being sung and using that to improve the subsequent vocal takes by playing with the notes in the scale and feeding that back into the takes - it's just less fiddly and the chord track integration highlights vocal (notes) based on their suitability for the current scale which makes planning of new takes brilliant.

From a songwriting perspective i think Cubase wins out for me, for mixing and scaleability i think REAPER maybe better as it's flexible and requires less navigation than Cubase - but i do get odd plugin issues with it, Studio One falls in the middle somewhere - comes down to taste, but Cubase Pro has considerably aided myself from a song writing/production viewpoint.

You can judge a DAW on it's technical merits, but really, you have to assess what you're producing from them to really work out which one works best, and again, Cubase hands down for me - despite it's flaws such as being a bit on the mouse clicky side in terms of navigation.


Studio One has the best ARA implementation, by a margin. And the new updates have really added to the performance too. Cubase Pro, also, if you're running multiple machines has the single dongle issue to contend with - not a biggy, but worthy of consideration i feel.
