Lives for gear

I remember back around 2000 having a conversation with an audiophile engineer friend of mine about digital vs analogue. At the time I was setting up my first digital system and was very taken with with wealth of options and effects my new digital program had. It certainly would allow me to do things at home that I could only have done in a dedicated studio before. So I explained my position how this new digital revolution was a real boom for those recording. My friend replied that he couldn't fault the ease and general results that were coming out but as good as it all was we lived in an analogue world. But the odd thing about digital is that when we actually hear what the 1's and 0's have produced it is back in the analogue realm and it is every bit as analogue as the analogue devices that came before it.
