This may not make me popular BUT I'm of the opinion that this is the main reason why Mixcraft isn't in the mainstream and never gets mentioned on vendors' websites in the list of compatible DAW software (along with "the usual suspects") i.e. it's a matter of perception (you know that saying "you get what you pay for"

Yes, durability is another consideration for sure, though a diff thing altogether than quality of sound or features. Of course it all depends on the specifics; I'd also bet heavy money that there are some pricey pieces of gear which don't necessarily hold up all that well over time either, and that, generally speaking, most cheaper gear (discounting perhaps the very silly cheap end, like $9.95 karoke mics and the like) on average holds up very well.Rolling Estonian wrote:There's also tried and true products that have stood the test of time. Sure you could do blind tests etc but there are products out there that are industry standards for a reason. My brother has SM57s and 58's from the 80's that are still kicking despite being through hell and back.
Yes, we get your point. But when you talk about certain products not being all that, I'd like to see some of those cheap mics be around in 25 years of heavy use. Just one of the reasons that people go with tested and trusted over cheap but sounds as good as __________.

Looks like a great unit i.e. double everything that my Focusrite has and more. Would anybody be able to tell the difference between stuff recorded on that Behringer or on my Focusrite??? I doubt it very much. But will that Behringer make its warranty period???...

Assuming your sound device audio quality settings are the same, you'll get the same recording quality from any DAW. You're just transcribing the digital audio information.
