agree with TranscendingM

TranscendingM, your opinion mirrors mine. Digital summing is simply different. It will never sound like analogue - just like guitar will never sound like saxophone.

However, hybrid setups is the future - digital recording and some processing, analogue summing and some outboard.

Also, ITB reverb and delay is 2D, unlike outboard which gives convincing emulation of 3D. That again calls for analogue summing.

ITB brainwashed whole generation in audio industry. The problem is that majority of people who use ITB summing either don't want or can't compare ITB vs. OTB summing in their own studio with their own material. Add denial and confusion from many conflicting opinions and agendas - it's a big conceptual mess right now.

But, luckily the one who wants to hear, WILL hear.
