It’s the industry standard for recording. And still is - you don’t see commercial rooms running Live for ensemble recording.

Sure - there’s plenty of owner operator spaces running different DAWs, and yes smaller spaces/studio owning mix engineers make up a lot of the market.

But PT has never been “industry standard” there either.

Yes the “real recording in a proper studio” market has shrunk, and the number of people working at home grown. But there’s still really only one commercial studio world, and that world still runs PT.

There’s nothing else really with the same hardware, buffer free, low latency, integrated solution really. UAD is great for single overdubs, but I’d hate to have 40mics live on that system and try to keep track of it all through the cue mixer.
You pretty much demonstrated newguy1's point. No mention was made in the OP of recording studios yet you made that assumption. (The OP actually mentions composing, not a recording studios).
