The thing that really bugs me is the amount of time you have to invest in learning a Midi editor, or Digital Audio workstation. I mean, shouldnt little things like "PLAY/STOP" always be the space bar? Shouldnt something like ALT E (the APPLE "Splat" E), or CRTL E always bring up an edit box?? Its always been my opinion you should never have to read the manual to learn basic functions.

You know... BASIC CONTROLS SHOULD BE THE SAME, dont you think? Even with word processors theres no where near enough standardization of controls. (The worst example of an idiosyncratic interface was the early WORDPERFECT interface! Holy HELL, Batman).

Doesnt it bother anyone as much as me that Nuendo and Protools are like learning two different languages?
