I know these have been around awhile, but I'm curious as to how any of you fellow writers for TV, film, etc make use of them.
It would seem they might come in very handy on projects like 12 minute sales films, or what have you, where the deadline is tight and changes happen a lot.
I downloaded the demos to both and both seem pretty cool, though LIVE seems to offer more.
I'm trying to figure how I'd use them in a setup where I have a Mac with Pro Tools for the recording and sequencing, and a PC for GIGA. The ACID demo says it won't chase MIDI time code (ie lock to Pro Tools on my Mac) but I haven't checked out whether LIVE will.
Any input on how you guys use them and if you find them useful is appreciated.
