In our studio we use practically all of top DAWs (Cubase, Logic, ProTools, Ableton).
We are having quite a discussion lately about recording/tracking audio to DAW.
Can anyone who is deeper than us in how DAWs internally work tell us if there is any difference in signal paths when recording to a DAW?
In other words is it completely same to record in any DAW if you are using same drivers and audio interfaces? Or do DAWs do anything to raw data "on the way to the file"?
I am also a software developer and my intuition tells me that this should not be the case and that raw 24-bit audio coming from the audio interface should come out the same from any DAW.
