you think of what software could possibly be 'best'

- OrCad are very big and good.
- Eagle is FREE and not bad. If you consider it is all free.
- EWB Electronics WorkBench MultiSim is very good, but not free.
then there are several other free downloadable programs
as well as commercial

I do not know which is best, especially for AUDIO simulations.
But there are members here, that would know just about anything you want to know.

I use MultiSim, only because I managed to get a Free Copy.
I got via file sharing ....... hmmm
And I like it. Very much. I use MultiSim9.


Will be interesting to hear what other think about
BEST AUDIO Circuit simulator.

What does MikeB say?
What does he use?
I know he is very good with this.


Regards

LTspice is the best by far. It's free and very fast. The only limitaiton is that it doesn't have a huge library of parts. In reality, this should not be a problem, because you can easily use any Psice compatible model.

Drawing schematic will be "teriblely" easy if you use Orcad
Multisim8 do this badly. I don't know why this feature of Multisim still bad although its version is 8. . This feature of Orcad have been good since version 9.0. After developing for many years, Multisim is still bad at this. Perhaps this is a reason why Orcad is the best simulator

Orcad 10.5 run simulation teriblely slowly . It consumes about 90-100% CPU

FFT of LTSpice use logarithm-axis, while Orcad use volt-axis .
Sometimes, I prefer logarithm -axis

Default Which simualtor should I believe in?

I have just simulated my amp by LTspice and Orcad 10. My amp ocssilate with Orcad but It is good with LTspice. I copied spice model from Orcad to LTpsice so both software use the same model.
Has anyone spice model of A1227 and C2987 ? I'm using these BJT. I use A1302 / C3281 for simulating
Bye!
