Hi, well I wanted to try out the analog tape experiment, so I went out and bought a Tascam 32 1/4" reel to reel mastering analog tape machine and started experimenting. Oh my god it's so perfect! In all my 4 or 5 years of experience recording in the digital domain I've never EVER come across this type of sound, it's like having human ears as a recording system, I couldn't understand it! Now I totally believe now that analog recording is an essential part of the profesional recording process, but It's sure that digital mixing and editing is totally necessary as well. Of course in the experiments I made I was listening directly through the headphone outputs of the Tascam machine, so here's my question... If you track in analog and then import into digital (for example Cubase SX in 32bit), will this process affect my beautiful analog signal in a negative way? if so, how? and how can I work around it?
