Default Recording software

I was curious to see what everyone uses for recording software in the forum.

I mainly use Reaper and did download recently the freebee version of Presonus's Studio One 3 just to check it out.

Haven't done any recording recently but I was using Real Band which is packaged with Band In A Box.

I use Audacity. It's free, easy to use, and does everything I need it to do.

Reaper all the way!

Long time ago, I tried Cakewalk and it's GUI was almost incomprehensible to me. Tried Audacity when I didn't have an audio interface, so the latency was too bad to be able to multitrack.

I did try Cakewalk (Sonar) software and it was nice but it is high learning curve for sure. Nice software though.

Another Apple Logic Pro X user.

I used to use Sonar X1 on a pc but much prefer this.

Ardour. I tried the Harrison Mixbus on a Windows OS, and although it was set up very nicely, for some reason I was getting an increase in floor noise.

Logic Pro X. I've used each of the last three releases; 10, 10.1 and now 10.2. Despite the relatively steep learning curve (true for any full featured DAW, IMHO) I think it's great.
As a creature of habit I'm now an exclusive Mac guy so Logic fits the bill in that regard too. That said, I spent several months last year helping a buddy who is a PC guy come to terms with the Producer version of Sonar X. Once I got past the cluttered interface (to MikeBmusic's point) I must confess to being duly impressed with that DAW's in the box features i.e. Melodyne.

I'm a bit unconventional I guess.

I used to record through a Mackie Onyx Blackjack interface to Audacity or Tracktion which was packaged with the Mackie when I bought it.

I now record into a Zoom H5 then use Tracktion just for very basic operations. I then export as a stereo file and use AVS Audio editor to normalise, roll-off some bass, etc. For simple recording like a solo acoustic guitar I find this much easier than doing it all in a DAW.

Cubase Elements. It came with a Scarlett multi-input mic interface. Like it a lot. Capable of professional mixing while not very hard to use for simple recording. The printed instructions weren't great but, there's a whole series of YouTube videos published by Cubase which are pretty good.

Reaper here. I've been expanding the already extensive plug-in library, and have started getting some really good tracks lately.

Steinberg Nuendo. We have several professional mixing and editing rooms running this excellent DAW software.

The responses here are very surprising. I thought for sure there would be one or two common software platforms used by most folks, along with a handful of packages trailing in second and third place.
