Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very intuitive/user-friendly
Pro Cross platform and highly compatible
The Bitwig DAW runs on Mac, PC, and, Linux. This DAW also has the distinction of being one of the only DAWs that can run 32 bit and 64 bit plugins at the same time.
Pro Supports multiple midi instruments on one track
Being able to add multiple midi instruments on the same track is a nice feature. It allows for much easier setup for VSTs like Cthulhu. It's also nice to be able to have multiple instruments setup that can be toggled.
Pro Supports expressive MIDI - MPE
Makes use of the Seaboard, Linnstrument, Continuum and other modern expressive controllers.
Pro Highly modular
Pro Optimized for multiple screens
With a dual monitor setup, Pyramix fills the main monitor with the Project Window, and the secondary monitor with secondary editing tools, VSTs, or any other features that are run separately from the main interface.
Pro Plays well with audio files
When importing an audio clip, Pyramix adjusts the tempo using a built in sample-rate conversion facility so that the clip will sound ideal.
Pro Great for editing fades
The fade editor and cross-fade editor is a feature in Pyramix that is difficult to find in other DAWs. This editor lets users apply different envelopes to fades. This creates interesting effects for ambient sounds or clips that have been split and should fade in/out slowly.
Pro Easier to undo edits
Pyramix keeps a log if which actions have taken place, so instead of seeing "undo action", users can see exactly which edits they are modifying.
Pro Ultra low latency
Pyramix uses the audio engine MassCore, which allows the program to reach ultra low latencies.
Pricey in comparison with other major DAWs.
Con Unreliable for professional production
Full of random bugs. Bad performance when using many tracks.
Con Very buggy
Con Very bad performance when working with several tracks
Con UI gets frozen, VSTs crash all the time
Very frustrating to work with.
Con MIDI Sync
The Bitwig DAW is still very new, and currently can only act as a MIDI sync master, but not a slave.
Con Difficult to learn
Pyramix is feature rich and versatile, but this comes at the cost of a very steep learning curve.
