zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Definately Makes the Difference!!!"
Sound: Pristine Sound! even polishes the bs Feature: well its called PRO Tools for a reason, does require some experience to maximize the session. Only thing that erked me is the initial output phasing which I came to learn is only solvable with certain interfaces, so make sure your setup meets PT standards Ease of Use: if you have already mastered some sort of DAW already, its pretty simple to adjust Quality: superb, you can hear everything Value: pricey for new buyers like me but its worth it if your serious about music Manufacturer Support: no yet...hopefully it stays that way The Wow Factor: the sound had me at hello Overall: Ive always been a Cubase guy my whole career. I've had LE all the way up to 6. hands down Cubase works better for me for editing but never completely satisfied me on the mixing.mastering level. I was initially intimidated by Pro Tools (which contributed to my loyalty to Steinberg) but I figured I'd give PT one last shot with 10 and boy was I amazed! As soon as I inputted my material into the program I could already tell a difference. The clarity hightens, the dynamics warms and mellows yet you can still hear everything sound, if not better. And this is was before I put any effects in. This made mixing fun and easy which is great cause its generally tedious. And with the 32-bit Floating, I was able to take mastering to another level! Cubase wasn't ideally designed for mastering, so although I would get incredible mixes from it, mastering in that make the mixes loud but sloppy. I dont know what type of engine avid tossed in this thing but I can jack the volume up 8db over zero and wont get a single clip! Amazing. So amzing im considering blowing some heavy $$$ to get the HD|Native interface to living it up even more- Even after for years I would clown guys dropping thousands on digi setups.... but now I see why... A must have for any independent artists or studio trying to get their music matchable to the Industry leaders!
