Which music software should I consider for aligning audio waveforms to MIDI piano roll, looping MIDI, managing program change, SysEx?
In my projects, I'd like to be able to:
see audio and MIDI tracks/channels on the same screen, for timing, so that I can line up the audio with the MIDI to be in sync
manage and copy MIDI loops easily
manage SysEx in a effective way (in the past I've seen SysEx data treated by some sequencers as a special sort of track or block of music data - to me this is a half-baked kludge)
I use a MacBookPro 17" 2010 machine. Would Pro Tools or Logic Pro do all the above? Or another piece of software I would prefer not to consider Cubase or Sonar. Not Cubase because from experience of a very early version (perhaps a bit unfair now) I did not find its UI worked for me, personal choice, the UI could not do the above things I need. Not Sonar because this is Windows based - though I have BootCamp so if there is a compelling reason for it, I would reconsider.
