The S-4000RCS is the setup and control software for the popular Personal Mixing and Digital Snake systems when a Roland V-Mixer is not part of the configuration. This software enables the award-wining M-48 Personal Mixers and other Digital Snake products to be used stand-alone or with any other console in any audio environment.

For this article on NLEs and audio editing software, we thought we'd take a different approach and ask you what you are using and what you think of it. Our survey ran for about a week in June 2010. In this issue,we present a summary of what you had to say. Note that for the likes and dislikes, what is reported are items that multiple respondents commented on. For example, if only one out of 30 users of a particular product felt it was too expensive, it would not be listed as a "con" of the product. It should also be pointed out that the respondents' comments are on whatever version they are using, not necessarily what is currently for sale as the latest version.
Sony Vegas has the highest user loyalty rating, with 96% saying they would buy Vegas again. Apple's Final Cut Pro was a close second, with 96% saying they would purchase Final Cut again. Loyalty falls as we head into the other choices; Adobe would keep 84% of their current users, Pinnacle would keep 82% of their users, and of those who listed "other" for their software choice, only 66% would make the same choice again.
Apple Final Cut Pro users appreciate the ease-of-use of their software, the stability of both Final Cut Pro and the Apple Mac platform, the high-quality appearance of the edited video, and the fact that Final Cut Pro is the industry standard for video editing. Some negatives mentioned include the price tag and having to render before being able to preview.
For software used to edit a single audio file (as opposed to multi-track mixing, handled in the next section), the playing field is a bit larger. Of the 275 respondents that use audio file editing software, the free program Audacity is the frontrunner for a number of users with 83 (30%). Adobe Audition has 31 users (11%); Sony Sound Forge has 24 (9%); Apple Soundtrack and Avid's Pro Tools have 21 (8%); Apple Logic Studio has 18 (7%), Adobe Sound Booth has 17 (6%), and Steinberg WaveLab has nine (3%). Another 51 users (19%) specified other tools.
Our front-runner for number of users is Avid's Pro Tools, with 27%. Of those users, 95% of them would buy the software again. Users like it for its ease-of-use, stability, and that it's the industry standard for multi-track DAW software. What could be improved is the price tag and its interoperability with video editing software. Pro Tools users also don't like that track bounces have to happen in real time.
Next up is Adobe Audition with 13%; 84% said they would buy this software again. Users like that it's powerful and easy to use, includes a multi-band compressor effect, and can be used to edit audio files directly without having to go into another tool. For improvements, one user reported that the user interface could be more intuitive, and another reported that surround sound mixing support is poor. And as an aside, Adobe recently reported that Audition will soon be available on the Mac platform as well.
Steinberg Cubase is next with 9% of our respondents using that software package, but only 64% of them would buy the software again, the lowest entry in customer loyalty. This seems somewhat odd as there were few specific complaints about the software. Users generally reported that it was easy to use and does what they need it to do.

MC. RME has always provided the best hardware and software support in the industry, and your regular updates are demonstrating this once again. I'm sure I speak for the vast majority on this forum in saying thank you for keeping us informed. This kind of service keeps me with RME.I don't run a studio or do anything critically important, so I'm happy to try the new drivers and give feedback accordingly.
