Default Playing and Learning..New Equipment

Well, I got a Focusrite 2i2 3rd Gen, JBL 104 Monitors and a Blue Ember Mic for Xmas.
It's eye-opening on how well this setup sounds over a Cheap USB Micro.

I'm learning the DAW's I have, Mainly BandLab Cakewalk and Reaper

I just did s Recording with the Blue Ember and MXL V250 and it sounds great!

The V250 has more bottom then the Ember but the Ember has more sparkle...

More to come

Why do you need three DAWs?

I think it's good to play with a few different DAWs to get a feel for how they compare to each other. I use Reaper exclusively, but you have to consider the higher learning curve for it's versatility. There's something to be said for a DAW that has less bells & whistles but is easy to operate with a much lower learning curve.

I used to use Mackie Traction and loved the "everything on one screen" concept. The earlier version was free and had the very nice Acuma mastering plug built in, but I couldn't use it when I upgraded my PC, so decided to use Reaper.
