Ezdrummer/NI etc drum vi's

Do you guys usually use the 2 mix that comes out if your drum program of choice... Or do send out the channels individually into your daw and treat each track as you would for a real mic'd kit?

I do both and find that when I'm processing each bit of the that I tend to get may more clever than necessary and creating a time suck.

Just curious what your take is

I do both as well but mostly individual tracks. I already have project templates for that so most of the work is already done plus bus eq/comp etc. The only thing I wind up doing is possibly the snare processing depending on the project. Other times I'm lazy and ignore my templates and just call up a kit and go but I almost always wish I could separate something after it's too late.

Ha... Ok, good. So it bit just me that does that!

Individual tracks for me. It's much easier for processing and making little, minute changes as I never record things perfectly or I want to tweak something when it comes to mixdown. But, I'm also either external drum machines or sample based for drums from my MPC. I don't mind my drums not actually sounding like drums, so often I'll throw a little effect on an individual drum sound which is infinitely more difficult than if I just recorded the entire drum track.

I use Superior and route out individual tracks. Not such a time suck with Superior. More so with other drum software I have.

I use maschine and typically I'd bring each sound out to an individual track. Recently however I've been doing everything in maschine, including some effects on the whole group. I find I can get something I like more quickly with this method.

If I then went to process something outside maschine I just route it out to it's own channel in ableton.
