    Hi everybody.

    Just tried to check the differencies between the two DAW in regard of the soundquality/sounddifferencies.
    And want to ask as if i made something wrong, or if anyone has the same experience.

    I loaded a VSTi (NI's FM8) and rendered 2 noteprogressions into a wavefile, both in Ableton Live and also in Magix Sequoia
    Then loaded the two wavefiles into Ableton Live (unwarped) and dephased one file with the utilitytool. So i hoped the both sounds would cancel eachother. But they didn't. And if you zoom into these wavefiles you can see that they are different. So i think that there are differencies between the two DAW's. Anyone can confirm this experiment or did i do somthing wrong? Maybe people with other DAW's can repeat and report their results here too.

    Greets.

    are they in phase? maybe startingpoint of wave is diff
    is the fm-8 sound moodulated? when it is a "moving" sound of course you will have diff waves with every recording

    No, its just a standart sinewave, and both made inphase.

    try this:

    1. record the same fm8 sound in ableton or sequoia internally -twice-

    2. put one of them on a new track under the first one

    3. compare them if the waves are in phase by zooming really close

    Yes, I would suggest to first check if FM8 output is not unique each time, compare Live with Live first.
