Have we got T.C.I. ?? After GAS and PAS ... Have you got TCI ( Track Count Insanity )??? Not being fixed on 24 tracks of a MTR is great, but over the last years I have seen project ..swollen to 250 and more tracks..Some have complained at Nuendo forum that they can't go beyond 500 ( with the known trick 1000 tracks) same for midi I mean ...is this still healthy? I had smart assistents and interns here who made real mess out of a simple demo recording job. They used anything up to 120 tracks for a 4 piece band... When I told them to produce a SKA band demo on 24 tracks like my Sony DASH 3324S had, they almost wacked out. PlugIn counts of more then 250 in a project seemed quite ok for them... Not for me, though. They were gone, soon... Selfcomplacent little smart arses they were.. How many Tracks do you use in an average project? I know, from my former partner who works at SoundDelux in LA, now, that at film mixing stages they have easily more then 400..but let us stay with a standart band project of 4 to 8 musicians.. What about total plugin count??
