While I know Nuendo is not the first choice for extensive midi work, protools isn\'t much better in that regard, so perhaps many here work with neither, but those who sequence in one machine and mix in another system will probably have some interesting insights here. I\'ll get the ball rolling a bit:
I believe proprietary developement is out-dated and difficult to deal with in regards to plugins and effects of all sorts. From what I\'ve heard, Nuendo 2 sounds every bit as good (if not better) than ProTools. Nuendo, a nice set of Plugins, and a machine to run them well on is considerably less expensive than ProTools. Factor in 5.1 mixing and video capabilities, and there really seems no reason to pay so much for \"protools\" because of the name and hardware, when its competition is doing it smarter, better, and for less.
(I was in an argument with a bass player friend of mine today about this and I swear, trying to convince a ProTools user like him that something else might be better is like trying to convince a hardcore bible-thumper to admit to the \"possibility\" that there is no god! It was rough...)
Anyway, I\'d like to hear more about this, and maybe get some more ammunition for my next argument, because it will come... they always do. Or perhaps I\'ll be persuaded otherwise?
