It's one of the main reasons I prefer Sonar over Pro Tools.

For instance, adding buses in Pro Tools seems like an autistic person designed the process. And in Sonar, you simply open up the mixing console, right click and add a new bus. On that bus, you set the input and the output. Done.

That's just one of the many things I've seen using both programs. I understand that it's the industry standard for some weird reason, but it definitely can't be because it's easier than everything else.

As far as Fruity is concerned, that's geared more to production anyway. I wouldn't put it in the same category as either Pro Tools or Sonar, although both can do production as well.
I cant divulge an opinion for Sonar, but I do agree that it is unusually difficult to bus and add channels in Pro Tools, and I would prefer that it is one click. However, within the new versions of Pro Tools they made it easier, and it is a coupld clicks. You simply add the bus then you wire it to the bus you like and the effects are much easier to add, however they made the effect level kind of difficult to control. I have not attempted to make beats in the new pro tools, but I learned in 6 and it was rather difficult to make beats, as it was a lot of cutting and pasting and no midi control for synths so everything was multitrack recorded in. I however like Pro Tools multitrack usage for recording. I have used Adobe Audition and found that it was much easier to use than Pro Tools and did the same thing.
So now I cant even post my own nickname in my signature or have an avatar of a graphic design I made that has my username on here? I dont know who is doing it but please provide a legit reason why my material is suddenly being singled out. Thanks
