platinum plugin bundle opposed to a few out board processor
lately i have been more focused on mixing in the box. has any one else followed this trend this last year?
my out board gear list is weak but my computer is basically the mothership of my recording lab.
I've moved to and from this a couple of times over the years
in the new year I'll be moving back into the box
this time things may be different as I have sold the analog mixing desk
I will continue to use some outboard
i have one mixing board which i doubt i will sell because its also equipped with a reel tape recorder. but other than that some plug ins really make the studio alot more compact
come on guys i want more feed back. lets make this post a bang for 2006 !
well i have not been doing this for long so i don't own any outboard gear yet. As I grow and get better I now am sure that good pre's are something that i need.
I don´t have a mixing desk and i don't feel the need for it yet.
I am now saving some money and will spend them on pre's instead of plugs as i often do :)
i'd say get the brick.
on a miore' serious note, have you considered the langlevin channel strips. they are a little out of my price range. if you have 1300 to shell out go for it.
I use almost exclusive plugins, since I moved to my pc I get more than enough plugins than I need.
I think at last count I was using somewhere between 24-32 tracks with 2 plugins each. ill have to count later, but its nice and conveinent that way.

No I have not been considering anything since my budged is 0 right now, I try not to think about new gear right now ;)
pretty soon the message board threads will be more like this
whats a better pre amp comp plugin.. the focus right channel strip plug in or the UA comp/limiter plug, or maybe waves ssl software?
(i dont think any one got my pun)
My good SeniorFedup, I do such a large variety of both audio and video work, some of my preferences are changing, mostly because of size and practicality. While I still like the sound of an analog mixing console, I get interesting mixes using digital consoles, which sound different than the analog desks, as well as mixing ITB, which I find sounds more like using a digital console and so, none of it is horrible. Just different strokes for different blokes.
So you are really wondering, which I prefer? I prefer feeding everything through my vintage API and Neve microphone preamps and/or equalizer's over anything else. What I mix with, I really have no preferences. I still like the ability to grab at a knob, or slam a patch cord in for a compressor or reverb device. But I can live without that, just not without my good Mike preamps.
