Mixdown To Tape

Hey Jay, thanks for your time!

Just wondering whether you ever mixdown to a quality 2 track tape machine? If so do you think it sounds better than straight back to digital and how?

If I'm in a situation when I can mix on an analog console, I like to print my mix to half inch tape (usually 30 ips depending on the music). Digital has come a long way, but it's still not as 'real' sounding as tape. Tape has a fatness and warmth that digital has only come close to.
