Don't use a pc, stick with Logic and your mac, because just as you they are the best.
You're welcome.

Less popular?

You can try Opcode Studio Vision. I think it's less popular in 2019.

Biggest load of crap I've ever heard. All I see in forums are people with Mac OS issues - terrible issues... It's like looking into a different nightmare world. Everytime the OS updates it screws everything up, but then they force you to update because if you don't nothing new will work. Everytime there is some weird *star* issue, I go look to the persons signature to see their specs, and it's a bloody mac.

You fell for marketing. That's it.

I run Windows 7 which is 8 years old. It can run Windows XP software still, and it can run new software, and new interfaces, new everything, no problems.

Don´t think so...

just an abstract of the problems with macs:

Apple’s latest Macs have a serious audio glitching bug

Apple has a serious, unresolved bug that causes issues with audio performance with external interfaces across all its latest Macs, thanks to the company’s own software and custom security chip.

In which way the 'mainstream' concept should influence your own needs for a host ?

You can consider Cakewalk by Bandlab. It is amazing, can do almost anything. And, you don't even have to buy it. It is free.

It has features like ARA2, Smart tool, Ultra fast loading time, VST3 support, Ultra low latency Recording and many others.

Or they might have just worded their title wrong and are inquiring about other DAWs that are 'more unkown' than Cubase that they should look into.

There is also Bitwave from Erratic Solutions : ARA 3, dumb tools, ultra high latency playback, VST 4.2 support and, most of all, a polyphonic 'Audio to OSC' feature. Worth a check...

Yes, Sonar has its own value, but still... How long will it last, as the original Cakawalk brand has closed its doors since a while, this without minimal incomes ? Just wondering...

From which, my 'Erratic Solutions' disgression : a convoluted one, I admit... :mrgreen:
