Why we cheat and what we need to stop cheating...

Hey floopers. I thought it would be interesting to 'come clean', and admit how we all shameful floopers cheat our 'beloved one' (FL) with "the other" (DAW), and especially explain why.

This exercise/poll has the intention to make it clear why we cheat; in other words, what we actually need to stop cheating and remain "loyal". This is a well intentioned exercise, so please "haters" don't ruin it.


Let me put some guidelines, to make this exercise more scientific data-wise. That way, perhaps, it might become more useful for IL and all of us in terms of WHY we "need to cheat". I, for one (I am sure a lot of us cheaters feel the same way) would love not having to cheat IF certain features were added/perfected in FL.


So let me propose this method>


I. Vote for "the other" DAW that makes you unloyal (if you cheat with more than 1, vote for the one you cheat the most with)

note> it will not count as a "vote" but just a number to see which is the most preferred "other" DAW


II. Copy, paste and fill out this short 'form'>


A. Name of "the other" DAW: "xxxxxx version X"



B. Reason(s) for cheating (features of "the other" that make cheating so irresistible"):

1. "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"

2. "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"

3. "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"

4. "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"

5. "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"



C. Do you foresee any steps taken by IL that will help you stop "cheating"?

yes/no

Explanation: "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"



D. Are you considering "leaving" FL for good?

yes/no

Explanation: "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"



E. Are you considering "leaving the other" for good?

yes/no

Explanation: "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"



F. List other DAWs you use frequently (other than "the other" #1)...

1. DAW a

2. DAW b

3. DAW c

Comments: "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx"



G. Suggest a question for the 'form'...

1. "xxx x x x x x x xxxxxx x xxxxx x x x xxxxxxxxx x x xx xx?"



III. So OK, feel free to suggest other questions and I might add them to the "form".


IV. Cheers for participating!


Again, this is a well intentioned exercise, so please "haters" don't ruin it. I get to "confess" first as a sample for you all... :shock:
