    Hi guys, my 2 cents worth is this. The last great generation of consoles were wonderful because you ran your beautifully fat sounding tracks into the line amps which contained transformers, op amps etc and then the fader was post the line amps. This meant that you got the best out of your line amps of your console. Now with summing amps you aren't going to get this benefit as you are doing volume automation before the line amps, you're not getting that fat signal consistently going into them. So record fat tones, concentrate on the front end, that is going to be your biggest increase in quality! With Andrew Scheps way of mixing in-the-box you will have busses that have plug ins that fatten the sound and faders post plug ins. Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren
