'Now one thing I am considering doing is buying a good 1/2" two-track for mixdowns to take to the mastering house. Anyone have any opinions on this? The idea is that I would do all my tracking at 24/96 and mix down to the two-track analog deck.' -Posted by Consul in another thread I'm also wondering about this. What machines are the best? What formats do mastering houses usually feature, 1/2"? How much should you spend to get something that'll outshine mixing to disk?
