We usually record live bands 32-48 track at once, so you were wrong when you couldn't imagine to record that few tracks with native. I won't say that all digi system is wrong, I just think there are much better solutions out there.

Ehrm, well a lot of the plugins I use are not available for native- Eventide, McDSP, Access Virus, Echoboy, Bombfactory- none of these are available for native, except the virus being a powercore plugin.

I still maintain several native rigs- I have Logic & DP use them on different systems.
I use different systems for different jobs- all my breaks material is done in logic and transferred to PT to mix.
Tab to transients, Beat detective, groups- there are a lot of operational issues within protools that make more sense- and that is from me, a previously die hard logic user (for a decade, no less).

If you are getting great performace from your native rig then cool- what are you using- I am always open to new ideas- but having a lot of money invested in various DAW's when I am tracking a band, editing the perfomraces and mixing them, I get it doen in Protools with a minimum of fuss a great deal of stability and get through it quicker and onto the next project. This is why PT, in my view, is the market leader.

It has issues, of course- the HUI impleimentation for Mackie control is dreadful, no master fader support- but I can live with that, to a degree.
