Please don't point me to the Steven Lee group Album cut (the one that is hyped on the SAW Studio website...the re-mix of the old Tower of Power tune)...I already downloaded that a while back...the recording sounded good to me...good...but not outstanding....and certainly not 5 times better than what can be acheived with more reasonably-priced DAW software.
It does sound good, doesn't it? The remarkable thing about it, to me, is that it was recorded in his living room with a cheap Mackie mixer, budget chinese mics and mixed in Sony headphones. I guess it's just another example of, "it's not in the gear it's in the ear".
From that standpoint, does anyone need a $2000, or $900 piece of software, when they could get the job done with something for $65, or $250?
