Pro Tools the best audio mixing DAW. The post also talks about other tools such as Logic Pro, Cubase, Ableton, Nuendo, studio one to name a few.
Idania Valencia's insight:

This is an academic source, which makes it more reliable; the thing is that the article is base in pure opinion. It gives many valid points and at the end gives options to the readers to discover and investigate other DAWs by their own. 

I just have to say that being the standard doesn't make it the best; I would say is among the best.

3 Great Alternatives To Pro Tools

Digidesign's Pro Tools suite is the industry standard, yes. But what about musicians and producers with a budget? We look at 3 free DAWs that show some real promise.
Idania Valencia's insight:

I have to say here that the alternatives offered are really different in this article. One important thing to disclaim is that ProTools isn't Degidesing anymore; it is AVID now. That is one of the reasons many music creators got disappointed of the newer versions of ProTools (9 and up), because AVID is a company specialized in video rather tan audio. The new features after AVID got Protools where to make it more like video editing software.

That isn't something necessarily bad, it is intelligent because the video media is bigger and bigger everyday.

Idania Valencia's insight:

This article talks about a real problem PC users have been experiencing since the first versions of ProTools. ProTools isn't the most compatible software with PC.

ProTools though has changed some of their weaknesses compared to other DAWs by allowing in the new version access to the software without an external interface and adding the new bouncing mode offline.

Idania Valencia's insight:

This article says something true in point 5: we have to be open-minded to all DAWs cause we might get surprised. We should be able to use more than 2 DAWs well.
