Bussing Analog from Digital...

I know that there are plenty of threads on lots of lists regarding the 2-buss issue (esp. with ProTools). One thing that I haven't been able to ascertain from all of this is, "what are you bussing out to?"

For example, if I have 8 channels of drums and want to mix them down to a submix of 2 channels, do you send the 8 channels out through, let's say, the Dangerous 2-buss (or something similar) and then back through the converter to two channels in the session?

For those of us that are staying "in the box" for what we do but are considering investing in some additional hardware to get a more "analog" feel, is this what you do?

Some of you have talked about using the FATSO Jr. and the Cranesong HEDD to get that sound. Are you using them on the whole mix out to tape or are you submixing back into a session and then to tape (or to digital format).

I apologize if this question has been asked before.

I think the whole point of something like the D2B is to send everything out to it and sum it back to the DAW or other 2-track format. If you send just the drums back to mix with everything else I'd think the latency would be horrible and the overall benefit wouldn't be that great.
