DAW Controller <VS> Mouse
For my own curiosity....
How many of you guys and gals, who are using non analog multitrack recording (anything from PT to Samp to a stand alone hard disc recorder like Radar, etc) are using a digitally oriented control surface (anything from a Control 24 to a D8b...actual audio does or does not pass through it, either way) versus mixing with just a mouse.
I personally use a 'hybrid' system where I use a DAW, but then use an analog console (non automated) in conjunction with the DAW for mix. I do all the moves/editing/etc in the computer using the mouse, and find it efficient, intuitive and fast for my purposes.
