What DAW do professionals use?
They use the DAW that suits them best. It’s commonly believed that professional studios only use Avid Pro Tools but that’s a dated idea and actually, professionals use a wide range of tools, depending on what they’re doing and who they are doing it with. Most of the functions you use in producing music are available in all DAWs and easily transferrable.
Which DAW is easiest to use?
PreSonus Studio One benefits from having a single-window approach that makes it very uncluttered and easy to see what’s going on. It makes good use of templates so you can be up and recording very quickly.
Does a DAW affect sound quality?
Different DAWs do process audio differently. The math involved in combining waveforms and producing a mixed output can vary and so can the quality of the audio processing plugins. However, the differences are small and there are much more important factors when it comes to sound quality, such as your audio interface and choice of microphone.
