What difference does it make what daw you use
Here we go again Many people who use SAW extensively would disagree with your assumption. SAW is distinct from its counterparts with regard to its internal math processing and summing bus. These dissimilarities alone lend credence to a better sounding DAW. Additionally, to me SAW's EQ and FX stand out above the rest. I've had substantial experience with many DAWs, including Logic, Nuendo, Sonar and SAMP. I always endeavor to be objective in everything, but despite my best efforts I could never get my mixes to sound as good in those DAWs as they do in SAWStudio. While previously I had to rely on many plugins from Waves, Sonalksis, Timeworks, URS, etc., with SAW there's hardly a need. Additionally, nowadays I avoid every plugin that does not feature 64-bit internal processing. Otherwise, one looses the value of SAW's pristine signal path.

With regard to its UI, SAW reminds me of Photoshop, in that it is dissimilar to everything else. Personally, I find SAW's graphics distasteful by modern standards, including all of the third-party shades I've seen. However, the graphics do not negate the UI's incredible efficiency and flexibility.

Incidentally, I am working on a shade of my own that will pale any DAW UI ever designed

^^ Care to share the Shade?

SAW engine totally bypasses the OS.

You can start Windows without loading the explorer and just putting SAW on the automatic start
list. No windows .DDLs loaded whatsoever. That's why it is another league.

Sound comparison

I am not actively promoting SawStudio. Because I started with it, I use it. Though I did try a couple of other daws where the sound was vastly inferior: one was a sony product and the other was samplitude.

No software can bypass the OS (ignoring software such as recovery tools and OS installers which can boot straight from a CD or other medium) Bypassing the Explorer interface is NOT bypassing the OS!

Sorry, the shade I mentioned is still a work in progress. I also have a few others that I'll release afterwards. However, all my designs will be available for a small fee. That's because of my experience as a graphic artist, the enormous amount of effort involved in creating them, and the fact that the shades will be astounding and unique. And if I never sell a single one I'll still enjoy them every time I edit and mix

Cheers

EarlG, if you're releasing a clean, slutty and modern shade, I'm interested!

SAW does not bypass the OS, any application uses and is supported by the OS. SAW is largely written in assembler and has no hooks into the Windows registry and works around as much as possible what Windows happens to be doing to improve performance. You can run SAWStudio off a thumb drive without first intalling it on a given machine for instance. The SAW Full download I think is less than 4 MB.

I'm very happy with SAWStudio.
