Pro Fools

we have a project right now that was originally tracked in Pro Fools (no fault of the engineer hear the guys got pretty good chops). But can we all please quit using this hunk of shit? Sounds bad, check, slick marketing to make people think it is the program to use, check, etc etc .
Fatman has a Paris rig he swears buy, I will use anything to record, but pro fools, it's a sham. Yes platinum records have been made on it etc etc but that doesn't take away from the fact that all the latest generations that are bundled as a studio in a box, digi 001 - 003 sound like ass.
For the same damn money actually a little cheaper go get Nuendo and some Apogee converters, presto your still working in the box, but it has a better sound.
Don't even get me started on seeing a Trident console used as a 2 buss to listen back from pro fools, or why we didn't use the fucking Studer 24 track tape machine in the corner.

A relic from ancient history?

This is so true. I am so glad someone is able to speak up and put digidesign on blast for their garbage
"industry standard" products. It's foolishness. Logic/Nuendo + Apogee Symphony will speak and make waves soon enough.
