In another post in here in RO, someone said the sound quality is not in the in the Software you use( protools, nuendo, cubase, Audition, sonar) that the real diference is in the hardware. personally a few time ago i did somes comparison on Protools and Cubase softwares(with a DIGI001 hardware), with the sames audio material with not plugins inserted and faders at 0db in all tracks monitored in a NS10 and Beringer truth; the sounded totally diferent. later i did the same betwin NUENDO A CUBASE, both from steinberg , not the same sounding, a bit diferent . my opinion is the sofware make somes diference ,less than hardware but somes..Wich is your experince.?
