    Do you ever mix to tape ? If so, do you find it limiting or liberating and why ?

    I'm laying it down, but the mice ain't picking it up !

    By way of explanation, the backdrop to the question was the recent shindig in the analog forum "Does analog move more air ?". It was pretty stirring rumble that ran to more pages than probably anyone expected. It would've been interesting to hear what perspective a "world renowned" somebody would have put on tape as there are still some people dedicated to it.
    Oh well.

    I don't touch tape unless I'm painting around a window or trying to fix the upholstery in my car.

    Well, at least I answered you question...not sure how much good it'll do you...but that's my take on tape. It confuses me, both in recording and fixing things.

    I used to record to tape, and then realized that digital is better and haven't looked back.

    I usta and loved it. Now I have all of these master tapes (some 35+ years old) and I don't even know if they are good anymore!

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    I've read through the Q&A threads. For me there were 2 bits of interest, (the EQ bit & something else that escapes me for the moment and may well not have been interesting afterall), in the comments from the guest but, generally speaking, the responses were fairly uninformative and either dewlt in the "how do I get away with a phrase rather than a sentence" type or the "neither a borrower nor a lender be" type.
    That's OK though. His claim to fame is as a mixer engineer. Expertise in an area &/or fame qualify no one for communicating with fans/acolytes or those wanting to learn from them.
    After all what would I ask Steve Lilywhite? What would he be prepared to offer in response?
