the only reason i would render down clips to mix in another daw is so that i can take full advantage of the power of my multiprocessor computer.

i find live's bussing and audio routing capabilities to be spot on when wanting to do a complex mix, the lack of procssing power is a real ball ache though.

i can take my files out of live, stick them in sonar and mix with far greater ease and have more high quality plugs on there than in live.

in live, you can forget about doing things with convolution reverbs and high quality compressors!

The forum for every host has the discussion of which host sounds better than which other host. There have been all sorts of scientific tests. There have been thousands of subjective opinions. The discussion continues without any clear conclusion. I think that shows that the differences, if any, are small enough that it hardly matters. At least I can say they are small enough that I don't care cause any of them are good enough for me.

which is just one of many reasons to ignore what you read online and use your ears!

- you're a capable guy - I've heard your stuff, and your ears definitely work. If it sounds good, then it *is* good. Good ears and a bit of common sense will make you a rock-n-roll super-God.
