Anybody used Sony's Vegas as a sequencer?

The three of these together make a complete audio/MIDI/video/ creation and editing suite

And if so, what was your experience of it? It's working well for me. Just wondered how many have used it.

I use it for video editing (alongside Final Cut Pro)... it's nowhere near fully-featured enough for audio production (although it's fine for video)...
Just in case you didn't notice, this place has sadly died due to spam overuns and a total lack of Admin upkeep.

Nothing touches it for corporate dialogue editing.. just the speed and real-time nature of it's cutting and xfade tools make it an amazing peice of software. It's still very under-rated in that aspect.

Yeah, I wouldn't use it for music production. But I love it's ease and speed of editing. It's great for voice over stuff, commercials, that sort of thing. Really, the only big reason it's not good for music is the lack of MIDI. Other then that it can multi-track record, run VSTs in real time, full automation, etc.

Not that my hat means much, but just to throw it in, I use it exclusively. I fell in love with its intuitive interface and have never been able to justify anything else (not that I could afford rebuying anyway).

I'm using it for video editing too but as mentioned above I can't really seem to think of it as a good sequencer. Midi, vsti's, plugins ...

I spent a few years using Vegas as a remix application with Waves plugins.
I'd mix a song in Logic PC, dump to vegas, and start chopping, moving, effecting.

I've also used it as a sound effects creation tool, jumping in and out of soundforge.

Great fun! It worked really fast too, unlike the more modern Soundtrack Pro, which hypes itself as being a great effects creator, but in reality can't keep up with an inspired moment.
