Hello all,
I am currently using all Sony Media Software products at work, such as Vegas, Soundforge, DVD Architect, etc. We are reviewing our software, and I was wondering if there was any significant reason to move to somethig else. It seems that, if you know your software, there is no real reason to move to another one. That's my opinion, anyway. From all of the "official" reviews I have read, Adobe Audition, Cubase, Sonar, and the rest are all pretty much on par with one another. They each have their own strengnths and weaknesses, but there is no clear winner.

But doubts linger.


So I thought I'd shoot this question out and see what actual users say, and not just listen to the reviewers...

If you are quite happy with what you are using, then why change? You'll have to get up to speed again with new software, and that will take some time.

For instance, I settled on Adobe Audition (nee CoolEdit Pro) a long time ago, and never looks back. I know that SoundForge now is roughly on a par, but Audition serves my needs well, and I am not looking forward to retraining myself on SoundForge.

Heck, I am on a productivity binge/spree now, to change over would be equivalent to committing suicide, career-wise.

Exactly what I was thinking. I tried to switch to Audition when I first took this job. I found that I was having a hard time learning the GUI, so I ended up going back to Sound Forge. There was really no discernable difference in quality, so it was a matter of productivity for me.

It sounds like that is where the decision needs to be made. How am I most productive?

Thanks for the reply!
