    It certainly will. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go that way, but, maybe you're lucky...

    Linux is for system administrators, Windows and Mac OS are for users who just want to use their computers.

    Note also that you will get more CPU consumption with any kind of emulation, or wrapping, or anything, which is necessary for running Windows software on Linux. And, that's something we want to avoid for tasks which are already CPU heavy, right?

    I use Studio One as my DAW but more often than not I'm using MPC software. I have the Mikro MK and the MPC Studio. What I love most is that I can use my Native Instruments inside of MPC software and the A49 works very well with the MPC Software as well.

    I use Reason since 1999 and the controller from NI does not work with Reason Studio ...

    I gave my KOMPLETE KONTROL M32 to a friend , he works with AbletonLive

    Logic Pro, because of how well the controllers work with it in addition to the fact that you can use plug-ins as MIDI Processors or MIDI-Controlled FX.

    Logic has the best architecture for working with third-party virtual virtual instrument and FX plug-ins.

    Logic Pro X since forever. I used to use Maschine software as a DAW for a while, but I’ve soon hit the wall with its limitations. I’m now using Maschine as a drum plugin in Logic. I also use Kontakt, FM8 and Massive/Massive X

    My 1st Daw was maschine 2 then I started using FL studio. So I use NI manly in FL if I’m not using Mashine software.

    Started with Cubase 8. Since Steinberg went out of business have switched to Logic Pro. After the learning curve, I think I like it better.

    I formerly worked with Cakewalk Sonar, but with the EOL by Gipson I changed to Steinberg Cubase. I tried Studio One, but one of the major advantages of Cubase is the Control Room - never found it at otther DAW. Cubase 10 was quite unstable, but 12 is now very reliable and performant. Actualle, I really use big plugins like from EastWest or Shreddage which consumes much RAM and CPU load, but never ran into problems.

    Another vote for Studio One here. Used Cubase SX right through to version 10 but once I started using S1 everything came together for me in a way that never happened in Cubase. Can't say why exactly. I just clicked.

    I have used Cubase for years, and I use NI instruments most of the time. I have a system that works for me. I use Battery 4 for kick and snare drums usually, and I trigger them with Maschine Mikro MK3. I usually use Butch Big drums for the high hats or cymbals. I also have a KK A49 keyboard for playing the other instruments, and I love the integration of controls with NI instruments and Cubase. Cubase can now configure for hardware controls, so I can use Maschine Mikro MK3 and A49 to control many Cubase features.

    When I’m not taking my cassette tapes and stufffing tiny bits of paper into the little holes on the top so i can record over them I am using Logic Pro x. Even with the $1000s I’ve spent i still sound like a really talented cat getting its tail stepped on. But in a talented way.

    i use fl studio both the new massive x and the old massive i use harmor too i make most of my sounds from scratch sometimes i use stock sounds in my opinion ableton has a slower workflow and is hard to use when coming from fl studio plus you can't beat the lifetime updates but i do like ableton because they have a lot of tools for sound design i never used studio one but heard great things about it
