Do any of you guys think there is a sonic difference between Mac or PC as a DAW? I am curious what your opinion's are. I have been contemplating making the change so that I can use Logic also. Some people that I have spoke to feel that Mac has a better sonic quality than PC.
I posted this because of a discussion that I was involved in. I didn't think there was a difference, but the person I was talking to said he had a similar discussion with an colleague. His colleague said he felt the Mac just sounded better. I was in the discussion that I would rather build my recording setup with pre's, outboard, mic's and ect. And then add the Mac because it can be cheaper to start with PC. I felt there was no sonic quality difference between the two. He said Mac was more advanced in the audio engine just as it is in the graphics dept. Thanks for some quick responses. If you don't mind keep them coming.
When Logic 8 came out I was frustrated that it was no new features compared to Logic 7 only a new GUI, so I bought myself a PC and Sonar 7.
I tried to learn Sonar 7 and made a few productions with it before I turned back to OS X and Logic, due to the horrible Windows OS.
The fact is that my mixes with Sonar 7 sound different than my Logic mixes.
I can´t say it is better or worse and don´t know reasons why, It may be different included plugins but I use a lot of UAD plugins too...
So, for me, the choice of DAW will affect the sound.
