What's the best host for hard/soft synth automation?
I just wasted three days of my life recording into Sonar X1, only to figure out that I can't copy/paste the automation parameters of my synths, and I'm about to chunk the computer through the nearest window. It's been a while since I've used other hosts. Automation is one of the foundations of my work, and I can't live without it.
I'm not looking for this to turn into a host pissing contest, but I'd like opinions on what works for you. After reading up on gearslutz, I'm leaning towards either Reaper or Cubase 6, with Cubase 6 in the current lead. But, info on the automation of any host is appreciated.
Edit: I'm on Windows 7, 64bit.
