I’ve been a Cubase user since 1997 (Cubase VST v3.5 etc., now on Cubase Artist 8) and although I generally like the way Cubase operates (above all the comprehensive midi and composition tools), at the end I almost always go to Reaper to work out an already begun composition in Cubase.
Why that? Maybe you won’t believe it but first of all due to the better sound (engine?) of reaper. In my view the sound in Reaper is more ‘clearer’ and more ‘powerful" (dont’ know exactly how to describe this). Almost all DAW users say it cannot be the case that differences in sound exists between different DAW but I think you can influence the quality of the audio output of a DAW by a neat programming style.
Also I’ve heard maybe the difference in sound (quality) has only to do with the ‘panning Law’ which you can set in almost all DAW. Therefore I only have to set the ‘correct’ panning law in the project settings’?
Anyone has a clue and can help out?
Thanks in advance.
