It's horribly designed and it's not intuitive. It might possibly we the worst DAW out currently.
You’ve clearly never used Reaper!
Waveform is the most logical, simplest DAW to do the basics in. It’s a flow from left to right. Dead simple. Drag and drop. Inputs on the left. Outputs on the right. Music in the middle. Super fast and brilliant.
Move away from the basics and things can get a bit more convoluted, but that’s true of Studio One as well, for example. Once you start pushing the design metaphor each DAW adapts (or lack of one, in the case of Reaper), things get squishy.
I also am very happy to have a DAW with no plugins included. I took the money I saved and bought the ones that were better and that I wanted. I use maybe one or two plugins from Studio One, and only sometimes. Talk about a waste of space and code I had to pay for (the plugins).
Plugin scanning: it’s not slow. I’d call it medium. Ever use Mixbus32C? That’s slow! But getting better. And the ability in Waveform to organize your plugins how you want, named what you want, is something every DAW should have. I miss that a lot in Studio One. Studio One can’t even seem to tell you what version the plugin is (or I’ve not yet discovered that).
