## National Instruments MultiSim, or something else?

I've been long looking for some better software.

I haven't previously paid, but I'm prepared to pay a small amount for something worthwhile. (Student discount helps!)

I've been playing with a now expired evaluation licence of NI MultiSim, which seems pretty good.

I also quite liked DesignSpark from RS, but MultiSim seems like a more sustainable/reliable idea.

Obviously there's only so much variation between them anyway - but is there an 'industry standard', or one that, in your experience, is pretty prominent throughout industry?

Thanks,

(Oh and yes, for the sake of being transparent I have posted this on a couple of other forums too - just because I want a range of responses.)
