I don't understand why this is becoming a religious argument. There is room in the tent for everyone. Whether we use Macs or PCs, ProTools or Sequoia, Canon or Nikon, Chevy or Ford, shouldn't be something we are arguing. There are arguments for and against each. Marketing has a huge influence even on people who disavow that influence, I think. With that said, I know of at least one very serious classical recording engineer who switched from ProTools to Sequoia because the SOUND QUALITY was substantially improved. I have not heard samples. YMMV. Cheers, Richard -- Richard L.
