why don't you just deal with those cases as they arise and stop being such a screaming child?
many threads where someone is complaining about sound quality are people learning the tool for the first time. I've had people send me their projects and have done basic tweaks to them. the differences can be amazing. maybe you just need help.
all that aside, pick on Ableton and not the users and I don't really care. Live could totally be better, give 'em hell.
you are the one that is screaming here like a child one has stolen its toy... I just stated that the rumour is based on reality not haluzintions as most of you guys claim.
But reality is that the list of producers that prefer other daws for tracking, mixdown and mastering is endless...
actually rising as it looks.. i know personally 3 cases of younger producers that grew up with live that have switched.
As the typical starters tool life has many users that just dont know any other daw yet.. especially people that mainly work in arrangment mode get easily converted once they try.. soundquality is defently part of that converting quality the trys with other daw´s have. And therfore it would be in abletons very own interest to be really at par with the others in that regard.
However difficult because they have made all the wrong audio compromising choices long ago.. and its quite difficould to change things at the root again.. you might loose all backward compatibility when you change the gain structure for example.
I guess they hope that faster computers and 64 bit processing will render the audible drawbacks of theire choices so little that they really dont matter anymore.. When you work with 32 bit recording and 88,1/96 k recording all the time you actually get a similar quality than with other daws on 44,1/24 bit... just.. so much data just to work around abletons mixbus degenerations?
no other option..
but that shoudl be actually the official statement in the manual..
live is a stage related software optimized for realtime tasks, therfore for maximummstudio production quality doublerate is mandatory as well as external tools to provide dithering and high quality offline samplerate conversion.
not this cryptic "when used right it sounds as good as any other daw" our null tests have shown null bla bla
