I've been getting really hard into music production, and the biggest hurdle standing in my way is the DAW. Currently I use a trial version of Reaper on a Windows machine, but the more I try to use it, the more I resent how Windows handles audio, USb, and MIDI. I've been considering giving a Mac another go exclusively as an audio production rig, so probably a Mac Mini with tons of RAM, as well as Logic. I've used GarageBand on my iPhone and I very much like the fact that there are instruments built in, and I know that both are built on the same codebase.
The research I've done says it's kind of a toss-up between the two DAWS. I'm wondering, as somebody new to DAW software and very much a fan of having accessible instruments built in (I don't have anywhere near the money or room for all the synths I want), and unhappy with how Windows handles basically anything I plug in, would Logic be worth it? Is it any more or less accessible than Reaper? How does the workflow differ between the two? I've heard that VSTs tend to not be very accessible with Reaper as well. What about the learning curves? Thanks for any help.
