Yep, I know this has been discussed too many times already but I'm looking for some real answers and some real proof. Does anyone have any proof that the end mix result when using a high quality analog console, all outboard analog gear for processing, really sound better than mixing all in the box with plug-ins? I'm not talking using tape vs a hard-drive. I'm talking the actual sonic difference of changing volume with a DAW vs with an Analog console with real faders, and using actual hardware instead of plug-ins. I understand that all consoles have their own sonic character, so yes it's going to sound different from different from digital and from console to console. However the actual question is, does digital mixing and processing degrade your mixes since its just adjusting numbers INSTEAD of actual analog faders, analog eq, transformers and wire? Thus making Analog Superior?
