    I did my analysis on Waveform. It is a very stable application If anyone wants a deeper analysis PM me and I will send you the full reports.

    I've found it to be very stable in use. Once in awhile a 3rd party plugin would crash, but it won't take Waveform with it.

      ...should have their ears checked. No. brains checked.

          Yep there is only one critical core (messy sector) I am trying to figure out is where the API for the VST plugins lives. But yes all in all a very clean application.

            Looking at all of the files surrounding the plugin manager and VST interfaces they look very stable and are unlikely to be buggy. The "header" files which are typically in the worst shape in legacy codebases are immaculate. I am not seeing any circular dependencies. I would suspect if anyone is having issues with VST plugins crashing in Waveform it is the plugin causing problems not the DAW. I would check to see if you have the latest release of your plugins.

                It's a super stable and great DAW

                Head to Head testing, it clobbered Reaper for most things.
                I can see how you would come to this conclusion. By design, a DAW is signal processing software. Even if you have everything set neutral your level, trim, gain and the EQ on the channel will all affect the sound. The algorithms in these products to manage EQ are distinctly different. Add to that every different product is uniquely coded for the way it interfaces with your audio interface. If different software is processing that signal you will get different results. More and more DAW software publishers are trying to get a more "analog" sound out of their product, each using different algorithms and technics. The overall texture and timber of the DAW will vary from software factory to software factory. Lastly, each DAW will have different ways of managing and interfacing with VST plugins. For this reason, not even the best of plugins will sound the same from DAW to DAW. Is it noticeable to the human ear? Probably not in most quality DAWs but it is different.

                Even when using a plugin, the signal still passes through the channel. The trim, gain, level and EQ will all affect the tone. Even with the EQ being set the same in different DAWs, you will get different results. Like analog mixers and amps, DAWs have their own tone stacks. Every company thinks its algorithm for EQ is better, faster and smarter. This technology is copywritten and protected and not the same from DAW to DAW.

                There are some DAWs that are built on the same open-source code. That is where it ends; each is unique in its own way.

                I find it mind-blowing that people feel a curly guitar cord will give a drastically different sound than a straight guitar cord. However, signal processing software that is written with totally different code and different software languages sounds the same.
