So... this is an amazing daw. However, it could be better.
What it does well: excellent sound quality. Signature classic synths, easy to use interface. Lots of options you literally don't need any other daw, has audio input for guitar, vocals, etc... it's a beautiful feature rich daw by a brand that has a legacy that is 2nd to none.

Where it needs to improve: while the interface is unique... it is also counter intuitive to all other daws, the scroll down feature instead of left to right does not feel natural. While they try to separate themselves and stand out It's not an improvement and it feels like a struggle to visualize where things go. If this is your first daw it won't matter but when you try one in landscape you will say... " oh wow...this makes more sense." It really disrupts the flow. There is no counter, at least not one I could find that tells me song length, so I have to use a stop watch on my phone to see how long my song is? That seems like a basic feature.

Good for Urban Music Production - needs a bit more

I have been using v3.3.2 for a few weeks now and I really like it. My first degree is in Recording Arts (now I work in electrical engineering) and I have owned quite a bit of music gear. Now that I am making room for children and making music less of a priority, I really needed a more compact solution for music production - Gadget (paired with a Korg NanoKey Studio controller) has been a great compromise. My only complaints are in how irritating it can be to work with pre-recorded loops. Even with Bilbao and Abu Dhabi (an MPC-style sampler and a loop "mangler") loops aren't as straight forward as one would expect. When I work with loops, features like auto-chop and time-stretch can be really helpful. I would also love a way to record audio tracks - but this can be done in other software. For the price, Gadget is totally worth it - but, if Korg wants to help me out with the loops thing, that'd be great;)

A few months in...

I like most styles of music but prefer the old school sounds. I added Gladstone and Madrid to my gadgets and they give me exactly what I want. I’ve been mixing a little Gladstone with some Recife to get a nice mix of old and new sounds. Madrid gives me the big, driving bass sounds I have always loved and layering some extra bass from other gadgets gives me that same blend of old and new.

I can get some decent lead sounds out of Madrid that emulate a real electric guitar and there’s a few decent guitar sounds on other gadgets but a dedicated guitar gadget with trills, slides, different bends(prebends, half/whole/whole+half), hammer on/offs, whammy bar/pedal, manual wah, alternate tuning, palm muting, chucking, finger tapping, etc would be great. Rosario does a great job of processing guitar sounds but I’d like to be able to add realistic sounding guitar even when my axes are not at hand.
