Ian Catt: "After ten years of using SSL Soundscape for audio (synced to Cubase for MIDI only) I finally had to concede that SSL was never going to implement the long-awaited upgrade to include MIDI sequencing and began to look seriously at alternatives.
"I rejected the usual suspects - Cubase: bloated and unstable; Logic: bloated and illogical; Pro Tools: MIDI not great - and I resent being mugged every eighteen months for upgrades. Almost by accident I found Studio One and it's very good. It's fast, intuitive and stable, loads of good plug-ins are included, it sounds good and it's not expensive. It is written by ex-Steinberg people, so the MIDI is quite Cubase-like. The later Graingerboy mixes were done on this."
