Rose colored glasses Tom.
I used both the DAE1100/1630/Umatic editing system and Sonic back in the
early 90s. There was no comparison, despite it's finickyness, Sonic was a
much faster and more exact editing system. Once I used it I never went back
to the 1100. We still had to deliver masters on 1630 though, until 1992 or
1993 when the Sony 900e CD writer came along.
