Depends on what you mean by 'industry standard' ;) For recording? Pro Tools is definitely the standard; you'll find it in 99% of all studios. But for orchestration, it's definitely not a standard: Logic Pro and Digital Performer 7 are both quite popular with working composers.
Besides, I would argue that there is no "better program." If you're a shit composer, having Logic Pro won't make you any less shit than using GarageBand.
This was written with Logic Pro (opening) and Finale.
This was written solely in Finale.
This was written solely in GarageBand.
If I hadn't told you that, would you even have guessed they were composed in different programs?
So, my point, OP, is that you know how to utilize one piece of software, and you can work efficiently with it, there's no reason why you shouldn't use it. People like to be elitist: their software is obviously the best, just like their iPhone is better than any other phone, and their computer is the industry standard.
Although, the iPhone is better than any other phone. Just sayin'. :P
