However, it sadly doesn't get used for recording anymore because the sound quality just isn't there, especially as relates to the stereo image. I am a huge fan of the old Emagic plugins (like the EVB3, etc...) and picked up a copy of Logic 9 to get them, and wound up trying out the program for giggles. Using the same audio interface on the Mac as on my PC, there is just no comparison, the raw Apple sound is hotter and more present so it only takes little tweaks to get it right, whereas with MC I need to burn my processor up in an attempt to make it sound less dull and lifeless. Maybe this is just because the plugins and instruments are getting really stale but I doubt that because even Reaper blows it away on my PC in terms of sound quality. It just doesn't sound professional out of the box.

Here's what I'm talking about... Just for example, if I record a fresh, dry, raw sound clip with no effects, it comes through Logic or Reaper so hot that I can put the sound right inside my head, and can also pan it really hard too. With MC the sound seems to be in front of me no matter what I do, it doesn't pan as hard, and it is weaker and more ethereal sounding; it almost sounds as though MC imposes a sort of digital room or space image on the sound. Maybe it's a phase issue or something, who knows. Does MC perform to any kind of referenced standard for stereo imaging?
I love MC to death and will keep upgrading it, but again, I can't really use it to record anything I want to publish right now because even the most heroic efforts don't seem to match what my other two DAW's seem to do naturally in terms of presence/image.
