Best audio editing/production software.

Hello friends.

What's the best software for audio production, editing, mastering, cleaning up and all that sort of stuff... You know something that can do it all... mixing, EQ, hiss/noise reduction, reverb etc... pretty much has every feature any one would ever need whether it be amateurs or pros or engineers

I don't mind paying for it. I've been using pro-tools, I'm sure there is something better out there

Re: Best audio editing/production software.

I recnetly got the Waves mercury bundle and used it with Pro-Tools. It has a ton of plugins but more importantly X-Click X-Crackle X-Hum X-Noise. I've used a few different programs here and there but these are by far the best I've ever herd, (although every NR system has it's limatations).

After using Pro-Tools for so long I cant stand Logic, I only ever use it for the few features it has that Pro-tools doesn't (which are pretty good... I just don't like it).
I also know a guy that uses Cubase but I have no experience with it.

Re: Best audio editing/production software.

I like cubase a lot but I'm strictly amateur.
However it is easy/intuitive to use(to me at least), you can lay tracks by yourself and has tons of plug-ins avail.
I can get great sounding recordings out of it (IMO)- much better than any external digital or analog gear I've had in the past.
I know a professional guy that uses cubase as well and gets amazing results (but he has cases of great mics and a good ear), but most other pros I know or have read about use pro-tools or logic.

Check out tape op for waaayyyy too much info on every aspect of audio production-
I subscribe (for free- not sure if it's still free) and have enjoyed every issue so far and usually learn something useful in addition to being entertained.
Even if I'm not familiar with a persons work it is great reading about other peoples thoughts and techniques.
This issues David Byrne/Pat Dillett interview is awesome!
(But I may be biased since I'm a big fan of most of Davids work)
