I don't think there is an accurate way of deciding top 10 Daws. Logic? It's not a PC app and less than 10% of the planet uses Macs. I could see that top 10 being more sensible in Europe.The Unsigned wrote:I believed FL is number 2 in the top 10 DAWs, for the second quarter of 2009. Have I been brainwashed with illuminati propaganda? Seriously, direct me to the statistics (by PM if it breaks the rules), not that they'll make any difference to my image of the top 10 DAWsJd wrote:thats not represantativ. Because this means only how often people searching for FL. I think, they are searching because more and more of them are waiting for new version, hope that some more bugs will be fixed, need help! Thats why they search for FL.
Sorry, ok FL is a nice peace of software but really NOT like you or KVR (whoÃ‚Â´s KVR ) want to tell us. If you looking for statistics which musicsoftware / sequencers are most selled / most used, then you will NOT find FL withing TOP 10. And sorry, that information sells
KVR is a valid voice of the audio software community. I discovered most of the audio apps (commercial and free) I own on KVR. Back in the day, it was the only place to find VSTs.
BTW, if we're talking 'bought sequencers' the list would no doubt read:
Pro Tools HD
Pro Tools LE
Pro Tools M-powered
Then maybe a few other "Power DAWs". This reflects nothing but the 'industry standard'. It also has nothing to do with the point I made. I guess I should discount all coherency in future.
JM was worried about the image potential customers have of FL/I-L. If FL has the most interest of all time on KVR, this is hardly due to a bad image/negative perspective. In fact, on the contrary.stk wrote:My point being, those numbers don't necessarily reflect useage. Rather, they reflect interest. Still bodes well for FLS, but you've got to take all statistics with a cup of salt.
I'm not a huge fan as advocating statistics as truth myself. However, I do think they accurately reflect my point. I don't think FL has anywhere near the bad rep as it did 8 years ago, when I first started to use it. During the two years I spent doing a music degree I was surprised at the acceptance it has gained with amateurs and professionals alike. I was really expecting the opposite, being at a digidesign certified school and having lived with the stigma it once had. I didn't see that much musical snobbery, and when I did I recognised it as such. There's a real-life observation; no speculation, hearsay, nor statistics. Everyone's happy
All that Pro Tools stuff collects dust at the local GC. You can usually pawn that stuff on people who are ignorant of the audio app world.
