Logic Pro X Sounds Boxy in All Online Tutorials???

Can someone please explain why in almost every Ableton Live or FL tutorial I watch the final playback always ends up being very pleasant and open, yet in literally EVERY Logic Pro X tutorial video it always sounds like they are stuck in a box [at the end]?

I guess that's why it's called Logic "Pro" because only Pros know how to make it sound normal/natural (i.e. not boxy & lame)?

Whereas in Ableton Live it's much easier for a nice natural open pleasant result?

Because as well you'd expect the people making these tutorials to be the EXPERTS/PROs!!!

Logic Pro X online tutorial examples:
https://youtu.be/Ga76FcOMWOk?t=1176 (listen to how lame the drums sound)

Ableton Live:

I've been watching tutorials for the past 2 days and seems to aways sound amazing in Ableton!!!

Do you have any examples of great sounding tracks made in Logic Pro X?

Logic Trap Beat:

FL Trap Beat:

And both from the same channel lol ???

Where are the tutorial videos for Logic Pro X that have similar results to the FL/Ableton one?

i.e. not 'finished' in Logic sounding like it is stuck in a muffled box then sent to 'mastering' to make it sound like it has been in FL lol?

Not sure what the point of this post is other than discussing the quality of online tutorials or simply trolling!

Answer to your question is you should use FL or Ableton for that ‘natural’ sound with synthetic/sampled drums, and get going making those bangers!

The point is very clear, just with a touch of light-heartedness & fun.

"Do you have any examples of great sounding tracks made in Logic Pro X?"

Where are all the top quality online tutorials for Logic Pro X?

Yes, that is "the point" lol!!!

Getting non-stop crap final results from Logic Pro X 'experts' (& whilst they are claiming it sounds "awesome")!

Yet, same time it seems easy for Ableton Live & FL (and they're just calm & cool about it lol)?

It wasn't my answer, hence why I asked about it, but then again maybe it is the answer...

Natural / open i.e. you don't often listen to drummers that are trapped inside a box lol, or like listening to the neighbours stereo through the walls lol > NOT 'natural' & open

Basically the reason is that usually people using those Daws, or at least making tutorials for those Daws, are importing heavily compressed loops and samples for the composition into samplers, to keep the viewer's interest, but also just for the style of music they are making.

In Logic its easy to make sounds from scratch, which means the user isn't likely using clipping pre-processed ozone-maximized audio samples.

So, we need to compare Apples to Apples. That said, I like Ocean's vids for Logic-centric beat-making. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXr...3giDMdwiBJvPvg
