Just did a video with "comparison" between StudioOne and FL Studio. After talking to some guys, I just agree that this test should be a little further and deeper and to really test an AUDIO ENGINE, we should export a mix of a summing of many tracks and then to compare both audio files. With just one single audio file we can't prove everything. Anyway, my intention its not to compare audio engines or to promote a DAW war or fight, its just to show the DAW wars is bullshit IMO as ALL DAW's bascily sounds the same, and even it sounds different in some aspects, 99% of people wouldn't notice it for sure. In the end, if your music is good, it will be good and THIS IS what really matters...

I'm sorry to say, but I hate these tests.

If you only have one instrument and one stereo-channel, there is not much to do for a audio engine. All the tests I have seen by now did nothing but compare one track to another - or maybe a mix of up to 12 bounces.

If there might be a difference after mixing 127 Tracks with plugins and panning is not covered. So I'm just as dumb as before. Wasted time.

When I first saw this thread I though "Oh no another my DAW sounds better than your DAW". I think the OP was trying to prove a point in that regard as there is no difference when it comes to "Sound" but that's another flame war. I think it would be better to show how both of these programs integrate with each other as there are benefits to using each on it's own merits.

For sure. There is so much more to a DAW. But still, I just wanted to say, that these tests all prove nothing. That does not mean, I claim there is a difference. I just will not find out by watching tests like this.

Ok guys, I got your points and I agree! My intention is not to say wich DAW sounds better ffs. I'm pretty sure that we can get almost the same results with any DAW and If there is some difference, 99% of people wouldn't get it just by listening. In this video I tried to show actually the other side, that DAW's war is bullshit IMO. Anyway, thanks for all tips and I agree with many of them...

I added a little observation with your points in my video description. Thanks!

Actually, FL Studio piano roll works different from S1 and C5 pitch in FL Studio will "correspond" to C4 pitch in S1. Its not the same picth in terms of frequencie. I wrote a wrong sentence. Thanks.

Yeah, I agree. There's no better sounding DAW, please. That's was not my point and I think that I was clear at my point in this video trying to explain everything! I will make a video showing this further integration of programs. Nice tip. Thanks!

Thx for the video. I personally like it, because it proves to me that you can make something in 2 daws and have them completely zero each-other out, meaning both produce exactly the same audio file. Proves to me that all the rambling about one daw sounding better than another is just nonsense. It's all in the way how u use it.

You really got to see this next vid. I know it's a bit long, but I devoured every second of it wishing it to be even longer. I think it will be right up your alley when it comes to daw and audio myths! It includes a lot of test material, you just gotta close your eyes and see if you can hear the myths! It shure opened up my eyes

Actually, I talked to some bad ass ProTools guy and he adviced me that this test should be further and to prove something, I should export a summing of same tracks in both DAW's and ONLY then compare both audio files. He told me that audio engines works completly different when there is a lot of tracks.

Anyway, I'm not going to do further teste because I personally beleive that's this is bullshit and if there is some differences, 99% of people wouldn't get it.

This video is AWESOME mate. I've already watched it once. There is a topic in Image-Line forum discussing this Audio Myths and "DAW's war battle". In the end, what really matters is the music you do. If it sounds good and its great music, people will love it and they will not give a f*** where it was made, FOR SURE. Thanks for posting it again. Cheers!

I don't think that was for your post, I think he was illustrating the absurdity of the premise, a lot of us have witnessed this argument including the OP. I think it was meant for this whole thread rather than your post. Hopefully there's no offense meant my friend.
