I have mixed on consoles and I have mixed ITB. Most people claim a slight differential in sound in favor of the console. I would have to say that even if the differential worked the other way, I would prefer to mix on a console, it's just more fun.
And having fun, at least for me, has a greater impact on the final product than that slight differential in sound regardless of which direction it goes.
and all of this is just mixing - it says nothing about the use of consoles in tracking
