Tracking with fx

when bowie came iin to do young americans he was stymied when the faders went up and stuff was dry. no one here knew exactly what he meant

he brought in tony vicsonti and it was later explained that in GB they tracked the sound AND the fx whereas in the USA they left stuff dry and unaffected to tape until mix time

was this a sweeping generalization or pretty much de facto and did you also cut fx to multitrack?

I think generall we always recorded dry, but if a particular delay or reverb effect was complex we would print it - on another track if space allowed. The same applies today.
