Different strokes ... I know many psy and trance producers who use Cubase and Logic. I use Studio One which has essentially the same linear workflow as Cubase. I tried FL Studio and Live too but didn't quite like them, especially this clip/session concept in Live seems somehow cumbersome to me - I understand how it works but I don't like that I have to keep in my head what is going on in each of these sections.
Yeah, I can see that. I believe Live/Bitwig works great for people who:
- used to work with trackers on Amiga or PC many years ago, because the concept of 'clips' is a generalisation of tracker's pattern,
- are completely new to music-making, so they can easier wrap their head around a 4-bar loop, than an infinite timeline.
So, indeed it's literally different strokes, for different folks
