It's so big.
I used Protools 8 to make my first solo album and Protools 10 to make the Ultimus album. It's great for big projects and especially when you're working with a lot of studio equipment. It's even more handy with all the plug-ins it comes with.
Heavily shitted on for electronic music production but not that bad
First DAW I ever used. Not the best choice for a budding electronic music producer in 2013/2014, but I saw guys I looked up to using it (particularly Kaskade & Matt Lange).
MIDI editing is really basic on it (but do-able). Audio editing is where Pro Tools shines, so chopping up loops & samples is a lot of fun (so is doing vocal takes of yourself/others). The fact that it's so good at audio editing makes it underrated outside of the recording studio world. It's not bad at all for producing electronic music (though yes, there are better solutions in certain regards).
I switched to Logic when it came time to upgrade my computer (this is before I got a PC running Cubase). Logic's bundled instruments/effects/libraries were a major selling point for me (I hadn't invested in third party VIs yet: I was using Pro Tools' stock stuff while either downloading loops/samples from Looperman or utilizing the included loops from Big Fish Audio).
