Im very curiouse about all this analog stuff I keep reading. I read in an article that alot of short budget pro's are tracking to digital and then mixdown to an analog reel 2 reel and then back into the DAW to add more warmth, punch and depth to the music. By "short budget pros" I mean, Professional recording engineers that still dont have the cash to pay for a full blown 24 analog reel to reel. If this method really helps it would be used to record mainly rock music. I would like to hear what you guys have to say about that. Waste of time ?? or do they really help?? How amny of you practice it, tell me your expirienes. Would a Tascam BR-20 or a OTARI MX 5050 2 TRACK RECORDER be a wise choice for this??? thanks for all responses in advanced.
