How would you compare between virtual effects such as plug ins and outboard effects for recording? Do you think plug ins are getting so good that some day most of us will be able to save lots of rack space? Or is outboard gear always going to be necessary? Of course outboard gear such as preamps will be always necessary, but in other cases (not only effects) such as EQ's, Compressors, etc...... Can it be enough to have a good plug ins bundle instead of some outboard gear??
