You can either:

1) Vote for the fun of it

2) find your own deeper meaning why or why not to vote.

I voted Renoise too. Even several times. But that was not sufficient. Results here:

http://www.musicrada...ld-today-238905

Renoise takes the 15th place among 20 DAWs, but hey, it is also the best soundtracker ever ;-)

FWIW, I think it's good publicity to be included in the list at all. 

And IMO it would be suspicious if Renoise made it any higher than the top 5  ^_^

Coming in at 15 is a pretty good showing.

My other favourite DAW came in at #19 (Tracktion Waveform8) - Feels bad man. :( lol

I just had a look .

 

Renoise is placed at nr 15 

 Reaper at 6

Ableton 2

Fruit loops 1 

 

It's obvious , fruit loops is the most cracked downloaded program  so all the kids vote for it .

 

Renoise /reaper should both be at nr. 1 ...we grown up men , just know .

Voted for Renoise, like every year. Wasn't sure if I should (lack of high-dpi displays support makes it hard to recommend for me, "seeing" that I use FL Studio more currently, solely for this reason), but I still believe it's the best tool.

Same. My allegiance is starting to drift. I've bought Tracktion Waveform 8 about two months ago since it, like Renoise, is insanely cheap but it does a good job on my 4K screen. It also means going back to a piano-roll but I like piano-rolls for broad edits. I just wish I could have both tracker and piano-roll integrated into the one product.

Is Waveform essentially Tracktion 8? I bought T4 (or maybe T3) a longer time ago, but didn't stick with it because I missed some features (it did give me a Melodyne license, though, which was nice). Will check it out ...

Rumour is that the russians influenced the 'DAW election '

Yup, They've rebranded themselves and their product. what would've been T8 is now Waveform 8. They've made some big changes and 8 is waaaay better than T7. It's pretty much on-par with Bitwig now.

Yeah… these polls are worthless. However it's perfect for content editors : no work, much comments.

 

The sole presence of Ardour and Garage Band proves it.

 

Moreover… Renoise is more a musical instrument with limited DAW functionality (for instance : no multi tracking) whereas ProTools the exact opposite.

 

Apple, pear and oranges.

 

Meh.

I voted for Renoise.

 

What’s the best DAW in the world right now? (October 2018)

 

> Yes, it’s time for our annual poll, which we’ve been running for longer than some of the applications on our list have actually existed. As usual, there will be those who say that it’s impossible to vote for a ‘best’ DAW, given that all of them do their job so well, but where’s the fun in that?

The people living in my house told me that this is the only program to produce music? They often make strange jokes with Fosterr, so now Fosterr is confused. I cannot visit other sites than those they would let me visit. Please help Fosterr.
My name is Fosterr Gump. People call me Fosterr Gump.

I voted for Bitwig, because it could be the best DAW, if the devs would listen to my feature suggestions. Ok they actually do, but it needs some performance fixes. Then it is the best DAW in the world. And then Taktik needs to add a pattern view...
