A lot of people seem to love the analog vs. digital battle but I wonder how many people record with a hybrid set-up like I have. Since I started with a 1/2" 8 track room in 1989 and then went digital in 1993 I decided to keep as much of the old gear in service when appropriate. For example, I like to track drums and guitars to tape. Lately I've been printing mixes to 1/4" at 30 ips and 15ips SR too. Maybe it's just the sound of tape cueing up but it just feels more like recording to me. That said, I will never give up my Mix plus rig!!!
