    Hi Lem,

    difficult. We are talking a lot of money here. I do have my SPL Channel One and use it for recording almost every single instrument. But buying equipment for 16 channels?

    There are DAWs that allow using plugins while recording. In Logic for instance you can create Input Channel Strips in the Environment. It's possible in ProTools too, I think.
    On the other hand you can emulate the tracking step in you DAW.
    Record all the tracks. Then use typical tracking plugins and add Console Emulation and/or Tape Emulation plugins (have a look at Airwindows for a very good inexpensive console emulation even when it's not a specific one). At then end print all the tracks.
    Open a new document and start mixing with your "analog recorded" tracks.
