I always track to tape and mix on a real console.

 The tape and the digital transfer sound pretty similar -- until I apply EQ or compression, at which point the digital is clearly worse.

Yo Dogporny. That's the OLD console. I bought a 36-channel fully modular console with transformer inputs last year. If I told you what I paid you'd turn purple. Haven't got around to redoing the website yet.

The old one sounds like crap in comparison. AND YET, the channel EQ's sounded better than plug-ins about 95% of the time.

You work professionally in a creative field, right?


You and Tony should go have a luddite circle jerk.

Me?? HA!

Just for the record, if you ever find a post where I have judged another engineer's choice of tools as less than professional let me know, I'll apologize ASAP. My comments on the analog vs. digital debates are most always because I want to correct what I deem to be misinformation (not that I can't be misinformed myself).

And just for the record, I work with all formats - tape, digital, console, ITB, OTB, and I can't recall ever wishing or even thinking about the grass being greener if I was working with different technology. I'm always happy during the process and wherever it leads me.

Choices are made before we start a project as far as format and workflow is concerned and it's done. Never a second thought after the fact.

But IF we're going to talk about, let's talk about it. I mean I have strong feelings about which mic cables I prefer and we can get into the weeds on that too. But it doesn't mean I think about it all day or I am detracted in any way if the particular brand is not available. But again, IF we're going to talk about it let's talk about it. I just want to keep things in perspective.
