"i love ableton so much i just wish the sound engine was better. always spend so much time trying to make it not sound like shit." - Flying Lotus

The master has spoken. Thoughts?
Can you hear a discernible difference in quality between Ableton and say Logic? I would say the native plugins in Ableton are like toys compared to logic's but maybe that's just me.

If George Martin and the Beatles had Live 8, Waves Mercury, an Apogee quartet, an Imac and their microphones from their studio they would create a masterpiece. They wouldn't be sitting around bitching about the sound quality. Imagine having to work with a tape based four track recorder. No undo button folks. If you bounce the tracks and you screw up you have to do the multitrack recording all over again.

Anyone with talent and hard work can make any of the major DAWs sound amazing.
