What I dislike most of the idea of using multiple DAWs is that shortcuts work differently and it gets very annoying when your muscle memory makes mistakes all the time because of confusing what works which way in what DAW.
But here comes the big advantage of Reaper into play. Once I learn Pro Tools well and get used to it and its way of working, I can later just modify Reaper to respond to the same shortcuts as Pro Tools or implement some workflows which I might like from Pro Tools. That way, if after learning Pro Tools I want to use Reaper again for some things, I don't have to get used to it again and when switching back to Pro Tools muscle memory still works there as well and I can use the best of both worlds.
No problem- yes, once it is published I will link.

You can also change Logic's Key Commands to reflect Pro Tools but I don't bother with that.
I find once I've learned something in Pro Tools I've learned it, I don't need to reinforce it in another DAW.
