But Tocotronic *are* Top 10 and they recorded on a 4-trac, no MIDI, no
synths and for sure no auto-tune.
Just a Band playing in front of good microphones.

And regrding the top-10 electronica-stuff you may have in mind: these
are nt recorded with Linux because the industry waorks with products
from the industry, not because it would be impossible. Give, you have
singers, that do not need to be autotuned.

People buy songs and right there in the Pop-singlecharts technical
sound-quality standards matter even less than in the realm of real music.
Any catchy melody, a grooving bass, a working dance-beat and lots of
loudness make a recording, that can be made a hit by applying some 2-3
Millions USD for video/promo/advertizing.

There is not technical power behind top-10 recording....
