Yes, these are all simply tools. What matters is how it works for each user's work methods. I have assorted copies of most though no longer on my machine (I do have lite versions of ProTools and Studio One installed)  Except for a few rare situations, I only use CbB as I have since Cakewalk fir Windows.

 

The real reason I chimed in here is To remind many that the new Melodyne 5 update now has chord tracks...

 

Sadly for me the update requires win10 and my DAW is trapped at win8.1. Dual xeon 6 core processors (3.06) and 64G RAM is hard to abandon...

I still don't get the idea of word "moving" from one DAW to another. Like you are leaving your girl to live with another one.

Well I don't think it's so much that you move...you add. I don't know any guitarist who has only one guitar, or keyboard player who has only one keyboard. 

Ableton Live is still the best choice for live performance, the only way to get it to crash is to drop your laptop from 10 feet onto a concrete floor. Studio One has the mastering/song page integration no one else has. I've often rendered Cakewalk files and mastered in Studio One. The workflow for mixing in Cakewalk is extremely smooth.

It's getting easier and easier to start a project in one DAW, and finish it in another. And there are DAW-specific features. If you want to create Acidized, stretchable files, Cakewalk is one of the few that does it. Studio One has that amazing harmonic editing that works with audio, not just MIDI. Cubase has great MIDI capabilities, and Pro Tools is...uh, well...Pro Tools. :)

With Cakewalk being free, there's no economic penalty in taking advantage of what it does best.

In this discussion, when discussing moving to one DAW or another as the tasks require, are we talking about moving a full project from one DAW (say CbB) to another DAW (say Reaper or SonarX3) or just moving individual audio or midi in and out of different DAWs as the tasks require, and then back into the full project in the original DAW?  Or something else?

Exactly.  I have already moved some stems from Cakewalk over to S1 to edit, tweak, and mix.  I find the S1 workflow more to my liking.

That's up to the user. I start different projects in different DAWs based on my expectations of how the project will unfold, or export stems from one DAW and import them into another. The latter is particularly the case with DAWs that have certain plug-ins that are locked to that DAW, and the only way you can use them is to use the DAW.
