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.

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.
