Do you run virtual instruments through mic pres?
Just wondering how you guys use your virtual instruments. I just recently started getting more into using them. I have Superior Drummer 2, Omnisphere, Stylus, B4 II, Velvet, LASS, etc. Do you guys just trust in those sounds as they are? Or do you print them to your DAW, then send them out to an external mic pre and back in again?
Before I got into virtual instruments, I used to have a couple of hardware synths and an MPC3000 for drums (I still have them but don't use them that much anymore). Anyway, back then, everything (and I mean literally everything) ran through a pair of Brent Averill 1084s before going into Pro Tools. But now that I'm turning to virtual synths, I'm not sure how to approach them.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
