No debate with us --the market/clientele tells us what to track with

Now we're getting somewhere...however those are converters. They just aren't converting to digital. They're converting tape and then back.

Just like DIGITAL there are good ones and ****ty ones.

There are some really nice converters these days, so my answer would be I'd record digitally....def not PT though.

I agree, except I'd do vocals on tape too, then I'd probably just forego dumping to digital and mix straight to 1/4 or 1/2" analog. Oh , wait....
