Ironic thing is, despite the title of the thread and the discussion within it, what really makes things sound good is a talent for mixing and mastering.  It's also my opinion that most people into making music at home these days, fall flat on their faces because of one really stupid thing ...

They monitor on completely unsuitable headphones.

that's the reason these monitor speakers are still around in hq studio's.

If you take a sample and play it without effects then it should sound identical no matter which DAW it is.
If any DAW was doing something "special" at this level which coloured/alterered the sound, you can bet your ass that their customers would be complaining non-stop, asking why the hell their sounds were being fucked with.
When you start introducing DSP effects to the project like EQs and filters, re-pitching sounds, and so on... this is where the differences in the native processing between DAWs will start to reveal themselves.

This is true. The Renoise 'anti-click' release routine.  Is that altering the audio?  Debatable.  Maybe there are situations where you want the sample to cut as clean as possible clicks and all.  The general rule I suppose is if you write algorithms that modify the audio waveform (even if it is mathematically one atom) then the program must give the user control of that routine.

Sounds as if my interpretation of Open Source must be fucked-up then, I'll have to take some time to look into that.


Check out this great resource then: https://www.gnu.org/...se-list.en.html


You are thinking of the GPL (desktop apps) and maybe AGPL (web apps). Those are viral licenses.


There are dozens of other open source licenses that let you make changes and not release the code. MIT license being the most common. LGPL being the one used in GPL land.

Renoise sounds so good because music made in renoise is sample-based? Not always but yes, sample-based voices do often sound better than free vst synths. Who cannot love the sound of a badly looped .xi flute? Or the simple joy of a shitty banjo sound that doesnt even sound like a banjo? Put some nice effects chain et voila, bon appetite
