I'm soon going to leave logic 5 (pc) for either logic 7 (mac) or another PC DAW.
The feature that has always stopped me switching to another DAW package is the Piano roll (which I use extensively to fine tune my performances / correct my poor playing). As far as I can tell, no other package comes close to logic's implementation of this editor.
Specifically what I'm after is simply :
- Velocity information displayed in / on each note block, preferably by colour, for immediate identification. (rather than on a seperate bar graph)
- Good implementation of the right mouse button so that I can quickly change multiple paramaters (eg. position & velocity) without changing tools / windows.
- Visually pleasing / informative UI
Other than switching platform to mac logic, what are my options? Am I wrong to think that Cubase and Sonar are inferior in this particular department. Is it possible to customise them (or any other PC package) to achieve this functionality.
My thoughts at the moment are that PC daws are failing badly in their implementation of this fundamental and seemingly simple function (which is pretty much as old as computer sequencing itself!) - am I wrong?
