    Maybe you would like to hear the difference?....This was tracked and mixed by a fellow engineer here in town. This was a big daddy session too....60 piece orchestra at Ocean Way on the 80 input Neve 8078. (Session cost came out to something like $1.60 per second!!)

    Tracked to Radar then the rough mix was recorded off the board an recorded back to radar. The tracks were also taken to a PT rig and mixed again to compare....no plugs, just pan and fade. with and outboard 480L.

    This is not scientific...just a comparison of the mix busses in the hands of the same pro. Will the stereo image collapse on the PT mix? Will the Neve mix be bigger and ballsier? Will the PT mix seem 2 dimensional and lack clarity? Think you know?

  5. From reading the threads on this test it appears that all but a couple people had it wrong.

    I loved reading people descibe the one sample as displaying all the problems they find in PT when in fact they were listening to the Neve mix.
