Curious what you all think about the seemingly inevitable over-complexification of audio software? I remember being drawn initially to Reason very early on because it was fresh yet somewhat limited. Then came v8 and 9 and it's become a completely more complex beast.

Jonas78: @bogdan "When I look at software like trackers, there really wasn't any inevitable progression." Not sure about that one if you look at the evolution of 'event list' kind of trackers on the c64 to protracker/octamed etc on the Amiga to fasttracker/impulsetracker/Buzz etc on the pc to what we have now in Renoise. The basis of placing events in vertical time is still the same, but features and complexity have definitely increased. Moar options the better imo, the user has to find his own workflow. For example I've never used groups, hardly use send channels, can't code scripts, just recently started using phrases (which are patterns that can be triggered from withing instruments), just cause it is there, doesn't mean you have to use it.
n9: If anyone wants a Reason 8 license with a very large collection of REs, contact me -- I'll let it go for a good price. [email protected]
zyxt: I just purchased a Squarp Pyramid to get away from the complexity of software in general. I love the idea of infinite possibilities that DAW's and plug-ins bring, but I do find that same idea overwhelming at times.

Any of you using Bitwig Studio? Curious to hear some thoughts and reviews.
Jonas78: Have been on vista for a while and the demo didn't work for it, will check again on this new desktop, curious as well. A mate uses it on his linux machine; https://soundcloud.com/missingsense , I would like to try it in combination with redux.
bogdan: thanks for chiming in. Curious to hear your thoughts when you've had some time with it.

If you have much interest in making electronic music then you've heard of Elektron's lustworthy MonoMachine SFX60 MK2 (MM) and MachineDrum SPS-1 UW MK2 (MD) boxes. You've seen the videos, studied the specs and read quite a number of reviews. These machines aren't cheap but they have a unique sound, have been used widely and offer an endless amount of automation and customization.
