In this DAW comparison video is said: "One of the excellent things about Pro Tools is the audio engine. Basically what this means is the quality of audio that Pro Tools outputs after you've recorded, mixed and edited your music".

And then that it adds glisten and shine to the sound.

I know many people say all DAWs sound the same, but I'm still interested if this guy is right, he seems professional and pretty convinced.

All quality digital systems with good input have as much glisten and shine as you want.

You have to flip the 'glisten and shine' switch, silly :D

Being convinced of something doesn't mean that it has to be true.

I've seen many people in my life who were convinced but wrong.

It's the English accent. He could say the Earth revolves revolves around Saturn and it would sound convincing.

In the US, Monty Python's Holy Grail is considered a non-fictional biographical account of King Arthur's life and is required viewing in high school history classes. True story.

Judging people by their hair seems like a bit of a slippery slope :)

He had me a "glisten and shine".
