Re: All this about sound quality

to be completely unbiased you need to test all scenarios and then do a null test. forget about the null test.. you wont be able to achive perfect nulling when running a propper mix scenario ... There has to be an subjektive evaluation by ear on the test files.. there is no way around that.. but wit...

Re: All this about sound quality

how would you record audio into two daws on the same computer at the same time? syncing them with timecode accessing the same audio ports simultaniously? or running multiple computers accesing the same Ad ports via adat or madi links?.. thats not the problem.. creating an identical mix situation is...

Re: All this about sound quality

This is extremely disrespectful, especially to a person who has devoted their life to music and to some one who has taught many many people many things about audio. sorry.. 80% of the people i know fall into that department, and they all just cook with water. And its disrespectfull too to disqualif...

Re: All this about sound quality

And even that test is flawed because pieces of gear are inherently "different" sounding. Even if they are the same piece of gear. So getting two identical sound cards could potentially screw up the test. Hell, two different computers could even be a problem. no problem.. you run the test daws on th...

Re: All this about sound quality

how comes that newboss and dbfs are fitting so perfectly well together in their ongoing mission against Live? and how comes that they both make simmilar grammar and spelling mistskes? i am not saying that they are both 3phase, i am just saying that it is getting harder and harder to proof that they...

not valid because interfacing with the computer os and audio interface drivers could be part of the phenomenon..

actually you should record the outcome with a third daw with the possible best converters.

or a proper master recorder/dat

Re: All this about sound quality

Live lacks the "big picture" clarity. Does that mean you cant mix a professional sounding album on it? What does that even mean? Honestly, its been about the song forever, not the audio quality. But what i can tell you, is that Live may color the sound in a not so pleasing way that might be otherwi...

Re: All this about sound quality

Well, you can start here maybe: http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=173495&hilit=logic+vs+live In the end not bit for bit identical, but is there an audio difference? Is there some way to modify this that proves Live is worse? I don't agree that cancellation tests favor Live, at best they ...

Re: All this about sound quality

Well, that's the thing, people often skim what I write and assume I'm saying "This is right, nothing else". That's not it at all, I'm usually presenting what I know I can reproducibly share with others so we can get to the bottom of this kind of stuff, because it fascinates me too. There's no doubt...

Re: All this about sound quality

Yes I think Live's audio engine is something different from the others. One of the obvious diffrence is the CPU usage comparing to the other DAWs. I still don't have any clear technological reason why Live uses higher CPU and begin to pop sooner than the others. sure its different..it has elastic a...
