Cubase

While Cubase is great at editing audio, and songwriting, it's a champ at creating music to video. It's easy to import the videos into a session, and syncing up the music to the video is very easy for even a beginner. And Cubase can be used all the way through the process - writing, recording, mixing and mastering, and exporting back out is practically a one-step process!
Cubase is also really adept at MIDI, something that was lacking for me in Pro Tools at the time, and allows you to render MIDI to audio in place at a high speed rate, saving you tons of downtime.

Logic Pro X

Logic Pro X is a must for Mac-based music production, recording, and mixing environments. It's great for on-the-fly recording and arrangement, such as when traveling or on-site with a Mac laptop. It's also great when you need to quickly arrange music for any number of applications, or compose a new song using VST plugins or MIDI instruments.Logic Pro X is impossible to use in a PC environment, so I would not recommend trying to use it on a Mac as a secondary computer in any music studio that is PC-based.

Like every DAW, it takes some time and getting used to, but Logic's tools and interface just make sense to anyone who is familiar with Apple products and music tools.

Any time I've had to reach out to customer support, they've been fast to respond and answered my questions to the best of their ability. Authorization of the software is easy, and the company is great about emailing you promptly. Overall, they do a great job.

Alternatives Considered

Cubase

While Pro Tools is the industry standard when it comes to recording and audio mixing, I've found Cubase to be superior when it comes to writing with MIDI. Also, it comes with a lot of features (MP3 exporting, time code) that Pro Tools charges you extra for. They're both about the same price to buy, but learning Cubase is much easier than Pro Tools, which can be a bit cumbersome because it does so much.

Logic Pro X

Logic Pro X is in that sweet spot between amateur Digital Audio Workstations like GarageBand and high end DAWs like Avid Pro Tools. Logic Pro X is good enough to be used on high end productions for film, TV, commercials and such, while remaining inexpensive and accessible, with a vibrant user community and many tutorials and educational materials for learning tricks of the trade.
