Also, everyone has there own opinion whether I think they will make your sound better or not. Every piece of software has different options.
It is the line, "more professional peices of software" that is incorrect in my opinion and why I posted.
I have used software from all rungs of the ladder, Audition(And Cool Edit before that), Pro Tools, CuBase, Nuendo, Ardour, Audacity, etc. I have currentl licenses to ProTools, which I rarely use because I find there are better out there, in fact currently I use Ardour with the VST plugins enabled for my work unless I am dealing with audio for video, in which case then I will use PT just because Ardour doesnt support video yet and I no longer have a current license to Nuendo, plus I run on a Mac and Linux so Audition is no longer an option.
That of course may change though as xjadeo can be synced to ardour to allow this, and it is my intention to try this on the next project where I am doing audio post-production for video.
What defines something as professional, is not the software that is used, and the thought process that ProTools is more professional than anything is flawed logic. In fact many recording engineers will tell you the same thing, it is widespread for other reasons, advertising, and ill informed people primarily now. It was once the option for professional audio, but now there are many other options of at least the same quality, and protools is not a requirement over much to make something 'professional'
