Still the best DAW solution for me since many years.
A very easy workflow in order to use a huge number of VST and instances/instruments including selected soundsets/patches.
So you can combine all (best of) VSTi and selected/patches very easy without any limit.
Here I use on first hand the rack-build-function. You can build a rack for e.g. Omnisphere with only one instance of Omnisphere and all best of patches/multis/performances of all libraries. Each generated state of the rack stores the selected patch/multi/performance/e.g loudness, settings of Omnisphere. You can name each state by your own and place each state there you want. You can also build genre racks by type of patches/sounds. So you can very easy organize the favorite sounds by e.g. genre/type of multi/patch/performance.
By easy link the state function to any button of your keyboard/synthesizer you can switch directly from one state to the next or back state.
Now you can build huge/whole sets by using (all) your racks in order to combine different VST at same time.
Here you can also generate individual states and also can switch back/forward from on state to another.
So live and improvised playing through all your VST, selected patches/sounds couldn't be eaysier and better.
The performance is real impressive. I have e.g. a set of around 100 different VST (incl. e.g. Omnisphere, Nexus, Kontakt more times for each library) and at least 500 patches/mutlis/performances behind. I sorted and coloured them by genre to have always an easy overview. The first loading of the full sets is finished after only 2-3 minutes. Switching from one state to another takes only in average a few seconds (depending on which e.g. Kontakt library you using).
Therefore Cantabile Performer is for me still outstanding, cause you can concentrate more on playing/producing songs/improvising instead of loosing time in always selecting manually VST and patches/sounds within.

And the free version is really a free version... not a donationware.
