It was the best because the producer/engineer got everything into it sounding great i.e. performances and tones. A great song w/ great playing and great tones will mix itself and make any DAW sound big as f*ck.

It's my sense that most of us (and very much myself included) don't tap out the full quality their gear is capable of. (And my gear is very modest and I actually have more than half a clue as to how to use it, having been doing this stuff for more than a quarter century -- and longer, if you count before I worked in studios).

I'm not saying that people shouldn't get nice gear if they can afford it.

I'm just saying that gear quality (from today's pro-sumer on up) is not nearly the contributing factor as the quality of players and instruments and the skill and ear of the engineer and producer.

And that many people who keep looking outside themselves to improve their recordings should probably spend less time fretting over gear and more time really getting to know how to pull the best out of it they can.

Hey, i admit that Logic does sound the best if you are using 512 or 1024 buffer samples, who can use it with that kind of Latency ?, I can't
Logic users, how do you set up your software for the best sound with no Latency ?

Note: You left out Digital Performer and Logic for our mac users.

Are you saying these ridiulous things on purpose to arouse us!? What in the world does the buffer setting have to do with the sound of a mix!?

Now that we're in 2010, I'd vote Propellerhead's Record. its definitely not Logic Pro. Protools.. um Protools has a strong digital signature sound. Not sure that's always good. Record seems to have that *warmth*.

I didn't read all the post but;

Shouldn't it be: Cubase/Nuendo and just Pro Tools in the selections categories? I have never heard of (not that, that doesn't mean they don't exist, just not as far as my limited knowledge) difference in the audio engines between PT HD/LE and Cubase/Nuendo.

Some interesting omissions considering some things that made this list... Pyramix, sadie, soundscape, not to mention Logic... Not to mention if you're purely talking "mix" engine, you can throw S1 and Harrison Mixbus in there now...

Not sure what you mean by the panning though.
