I'm sort of new with DAW's, previously I "decided" to go with samplitude, but later found it to restrictive since it can't handle 7.1 surround (or itself without crashing), unless one looses his/her mind and cough's up $3000 for Sequoya. My choice has fallen on Reaper, which is clearly above everything I've ever likely to come across. As THE DAW it is capable of doing everything I / you could ever need, especially when combining it with Voxengo's plugins, WOW!, I mean you people are incredible, and I know that because my ears tells me so. The end result is everything that ever mattered, which is why we're all doomed, but that's another story ;o)
You´ve got great plugins. Smart, good looking, sophistique, clear to use, low CPU...etc. but first of all - they got unique style. Dont´start "copy" any classic effects, tape machines, or just anything. Just keep your own style and way to make plugins, there is so many copymakers in the business...
All the best for the New Year 2018!
