Hello lovely people!
I got a good bunch of great questions this week! Please keep them coming! I post a new FAQ Friday video… every Friday! haha
Let’s get to it!
I get this questions similar to this all the time:
Do you use a plug-in to emulate analog summing or do you actually use analog summing?
It’s a really interesting question because DAW’s have come so far so quickly! It was late ’90s to early mid 2000s and there wasn’t a single producer, engineer, or especially mixer that I knew that liked the sound of mixing in the box.
They would all say “you can tell it was mixed in the box.”
So do I need to sum? – In the end it comes down to workflow. If you love the idea of brining audio through a console and on faders, and playing with it that way… then keep doing that! If that’s something that feels good to you then that makes perfect sense.
However, if you’ve grown up recently using just the computer, just the computer’s keyboard and have not been used to using faders, why start now?
