Hi everyone While I'm a satisfied Sonar user for the most part, I've listened to most of the mainstream software out there. I don't know if it's just my imagination, but the demo of Samplitude 7 seems to sound better. I'm just not talking about effects, but simply playing files with no processing. Some say this can't be the case, but my ears tell me otherwise. I've seen numerous references to Sequoia (JoeH and Jeremy, Ben too? Sorry if I've gotten mixed up here!). I'm just wondering if you use it because you hear superior sound quality, or is it the advanced processing features in Sequoia? I think both versions have the same audio engine, and that's what I'm most interested in. Thanks, John PS I bought Sam7 on ebay (dirt cheap), but I now think it's fake. It hasn't arrived yet, but the seller has some negative feedback from the last few days about selling pirated stuff. I'm not going to put anything on my computer that hasn't come from a credible source.
