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.
Yes, Automation is sooo easy with StudioOne, touch any fader, knob, curve, anything, and grab the hand symbol from the parameter box, drag it to a track and tweak your automation curve, done. It doesn't get any better than that.
