- DAW online 24/7 w/highly conservative web use (audio stuff only etc)
- DAW both online and offline (i.e. offline when recording)
- DAW online 24/7 and doing anything and everything with that computer
- NO antivirus
- Windows/MS antivirus
- 3rd Party antivirus
I’ve been using Cubase since 1999 and my DAW has always been off line. I’ve always done updates etc via a USB stick. My DAW has (almost) always been problem free and clean and fast (Windows). I only do Audio related stuff on my DAW. But now I’m seeing a need to go online with my DAW, easy updates for products, buying plugins and even stuff like subscriptions (Slate). Do any of you WIN guys have your DAW online? and if so what (if anything) do you use for virus protection? thanks for your time.
UPDATE: hey guys, thanks for all of the replies, this is all great to read. I’ve added a poll with options for online and virus protection. A vote for each. Again, thank you for your time.
