i would be a happy mixer if I only had 8 tracks to mix, but i only get that if i'm mixing for david Kahne. The rest of the time I want to keep it down to 46 tracks. That magic number is because the rest of the desk is allocated to all types of toys and returns of samples etc.

I don't think there is any sonic compromise to making stems, that I can hear. When I make a stem it might be submixing stereo harmony vocals, kicks, snares, guitars that have a couple amps or ambience. I have my assistant make the stems and then I'll listen to them for approval.

Just two more days here, where did the time go?
