Correct. GP is not in the list of our officially supported DAWs and our Quality Assessment
does not test it. Anything on unsupported DAWs is simply what we support are
knowledgeable of / have found out on our own and compiled.

GP is basically still covered in the foggy shrouds of war.

As for your marriage issue: The big DAWs definitely have a lot of different functions.
And getting started with them can indeed be quite intimidating, understandable.
But the question is if you'll really be needing every single function that exists?
After four (soon five) years of using Cubase, I've found myself mostly still
only using the main few functions which I discovered after a few days.

On the other hand, you'll need to also ask yourself if GP offers you everything that
you need? Does it work properly for you? Are you happy with the functions which
are available?

The good thing about nearly all of the DAWs is that they have trials available!
Most of them are for 30-days and only require you to submit an e-mail address
or register an account (for free, of course). I'd definitely recommend you to check
them out and perhaps try one or two of them.

And YouTube also has a plethora of information on the various DAWs.

Personally, I use Cubase on my main system and Reaper on my secondary one.

You can find a full list of supported DAWs (and a few unsupported ones) including
links to their trials in my newly created PDF right here: OS & DAWs.

Just to be clear, Gig Performer is not a DAW - it's a plugin host specifically designed for the needs of live performing musicians. It is not a multitrack editing system. (It can save all incoming audio but that's intended for FoH engineers wishing to record a live show for later post production)

It's not uncommon however for musicians to use Gig Performer in conjunction with a DAW. One of the strengths of Gig Performer is that it lets you focus on creating/sculpting your sounds without being distracted by the track/channel strip stuff, send/insert/aux busses and so forth.

Just wanted to set the record straight.
