yeah, i was quasi insulted when i defended 3phaze on the fact live had not the accuracy and sound quality of other daw.dbfs wrote:And people wonder why theres always people who bitch about the sound quality of live.. This would absolutely start to make your mix phasy and sound like shit... The more plugs you get rolling, the worse it starts to sound.. This has been going on for ages with this program.
But were all still crazy and need to go clean our ears out and do the quadrupal blind test.
I love live, but honestly, with this many bugs with such senstive audio data, I don't know how any of you defend this program and its sound quality. I guess fanboys will be fanboys...
Anybody including fanboys can clearly prove it by themself by the above tests in 5mn.
Simply clips Modulations, arrange Automations and device Sync timer are not latency compensated in any way, wich is the simple fact of live legendary 'imagined' elastic timing and sound accuracy wich certainly affects the sound more than one can imagine, at least results in bad hearable unwanted things compared to properly working adc. messed attacks, offseted and out of sync rytmic fx, and potential phasing effect just to name few of them that certainly make your way harder to get 'musical' results.
somebody tells me how im supposed to draw my clips modulations if i automate a device and the result appears in audio 100ms later than how it is represented on the wavform? we zoom and make our cuts a 1.24567 by disabling grid instead of 1.1? mmmm
people just put tracks at 0db in each daws and say they cancel, so daws are all the same, oh yeah...
this won't happen if you don't use 3rd party oh yeah..
ADC is purely and simply another half achieved virtual concept in live.
i seriously doubt cubase, logic, pt or other behaves the same relating this but will test for sure.
still... live is the best for what it does,. but it could do better.
