to me would be:

(1) talent
(2) dedication and love for what you do
(3) good taste as a producer/engineer
(4) good vibe, charism
(5) gear
(6) room
(7) $$$$

you have lots of chances of ending up with a nice job and of receiving quite good reviews about your job and about you as a pro/human being.

I'm just wondering, what amazing sounding rock records have been entirely inside a DAW?

I can get a little carried away reading too many posts and not spending time listening. Last week I hung out with a great mastering engineer thats worked on a lot of my favorite records. We were talking and I was telling him how I had recently gotten a trident 70 console, but hadnt started mixing on it yet because I dont have any quality converters and only have 8 outs anyways. He advised I try both and see what I thought. I totally chose summing 8 channels of bad converters thru a decent desk then doing it all in PTle. Take away the plug ins, add more and better converters and I dont see how anyone can think mixing in a DAW can sonically compete with an amazing console with good converters and outboard.

I totally understand mixing in a DAW for other reasons (recallability, especially when working with people that dont know what they want, and end up adding more stuff after they've heard the mixes, or if you're working in a room where you cant trust the sound which is my situation). But if sonic quality is your only concern I dont know how anyone would choose a PT mix.

I mix in a DAW everyday for a bunch of reasons, but its never for the 'sound'. Even though I get totally usable results that everyone seems to like.

What you do often at work , can become - "your axe" . Folks get good with their axe, they find they can do the best work with it. Hopefully on a pro level the tools used become less important than the final results.

Meanwhile -

How about treating yourself to a 8 ch RME converter via lightpipe for your 001?

That would give you 16 channels
Superior clocking to your rig
throw in a Lucid Word clock / or second hand Nanosyncs clock device
as the cherrry on top!

Ssshhh! He's just kidding around folks, pay no attention. Go about your normal business of dumping large frame consoles for next to nothing, getting rid of all that archaic 48k outboard, you know, upgrading.
Mathematic addition of digital signals sounds every bit as good as padding individual analog inputs, wiring them in parallel, and amplifying them again. No reason to listen and compare, it's pretty much the exact same thing. Move along, nothing to see here...

Well I hope to upgrade to a mix+ soon and dont know what I want to do for converters quite yet. Plus I'm going to be moving into a real space sometime soon and plan on doing it all at one time. But most likely I'll pick up the RME's, I just need to get all my money stuff straightened out.
