Is there a series of What Compressor Do You Hate?, What EQ Do You Hate?, What Filter Do You Hate?, What Distortion Do You Hate? etc?

Why yes there is, and REAPER won all those as well.

I think somewhere there is a man wearing a black hoodie holding a scythe that could use a hug

no hate, it’s a waste of energy. I do miss Mixcraft Pro since I left windows and went with Mac.
If Acoustica ever wanna port it, I’ll buy the thing without bothering to try it out first.
I'm tired of being insane. I'm going outsane for some fresh air.

it's kind of funny that you could make the exact same poll with "what DAW you love" and you'd likely get more answers but the ratios would probably be surprisingly similar

If Studio One was efficient as Reaper I would be content. Trying Reaper evaluation each day. I already miss the simple things like Ctrl+a p / select all, loop and set to active.
Currently trying to turn noise into music. :neutral:

I'm often accused of being too curious about random/trivial things. Having said that, might I inquire about your use of parenthesis? Just curious...

Actually, if you think about the size of Cubase's user base, it has surprisingly few hates compared to the other big players.
NOVAkILL 4.0 : Dell G7 (Core i7, 8GB RAM, Win10), UR44C, Cubase, DUNE, Thorn, TRK-01, Equator, Vacuum Pro, Substance, Arcsyn, Aparillo, Phase Plant, Pigments, Union, Analog Keys, Ultranova, Uno, Skulpt, Craft 2.

I would expect the same. Not sure we'd get more answers though.

I don't know about their hardware but for Studio One they seem to implement most of the popular requests from what I can tell.
