When transferring a mix between two DAW applications (platforms), on the same computer, same sample rate, same bit depth, shouldn't it sound the same on either platform ?
For example, on my computer I'll do single track editing in WaveLab, then transfer the tracks to Sonar Producer for multi-track editing and mix down to stereo. Then it's back to WaveLab with the stereo mixes for any audio analysis and/or finishing touches (pseudo mastering).
The stereo mixes sound slightly different on Sonar and Wavelab. Slight differences, but differences nonetheless...
What I hear are 1 to 2.5 dB variations in certain frequencies across the spectrum, and a very slight change in soundstage depth.
