Since the early 90s I used a Sonic Solutions DAW. It was fantastic. Real time, great sound, did sound locked to picture, Mac-based, used common peripherals. But, as we started doing more and more work with studios around the country it became clear that Pro Tools was the system they all used. I finally got tired of explining why I used Sonic and installed a PT HD system. The end result was a lot more business.
