You can run Kontakt inside of a DAW. I sample in my MPC or ASR and dump into Logic 8 (mac) myself, but I have a homey that uses Fruity Loops Studio with Kontakt and it works well. I've also heard good things about Ableton.
4. "I swear by Adobe Audition 3.0" In response to Reply # 0
Pretty much, 3.0 is user-friendly as hell. Granted, to be fair, its all I've known for the last decade but my bandmates use other platforms like Logic or Reason and anytime I'd watch them utilize they shit, I'd think to myself: Dat shit is WAY EASIER in Audition...
So there it is. But I'm biased 'cus I been on Audition since it was called Cool Edit Pro. I've stayed wit deez ninjaz da WHOLE TIME.
and I'm never changing. I tried the new version, but it doesn't play nice with my 32 bit plugins.
I cant EVER see a reason to change from audition 3.0.
