Analog gear is still used to get into DAW's - running analog gear at the levels it would take to reach high Digital Levels is NOT how the gear was designed .. i run at those levels .. only bringing things up to LOUDer on Delivery !! or Checking to see how things will end up ..

and what about Headroom Once you are working inside the box ?? some room for Comp & Limiters to play !!!

what are you achieving by running HOT into a DAW ?? are you thinking of the old daysof 16 bit where every bit counted !!! tough days to get levels up that high from analog gear and NOT hit any overs .. fine line at times !! i do not miss those days .. 24bit - average to slightly higher analog levels work just fine ..

this is an old argument / conversation !!!! and not everyone agrees !!

“The Return of the Zombie VU Thread” doesn’t promise to be a popular movie.
POST 22 says 15 years .. so yes, we know .. and this Sequel promises to be better than the original Movie !!! decided to shorten it to “Zombie VU" pronounced Zom-B-View

we will have special glasses that can see things you cannot see with the naked eye .. Like that Tactical SunGlasses Commercial, where you see a White Card, then you put on the Magic Glasses and you see an Eagle over the American Flag !! crazy ..

maybe we should put out a Zombie VU Plugin !!! "Dripping with Character" !!! and it would be a Meter that you coudl NOT Kill unless a direct HEad Shot !!!
