Thanks for saying so- I appreciate it.

I love some plug-ins- it's just a matter of application. I still prefer analog signal processing in a chain and generally use plug-ins as an afterthought, such as if I wanted another compressor on a specific sound, but an analog compressor in that position negatively impacted it. I'll tend to rely on this mainly if I'm working in the box- otherwise, I'd still opt for analog processing, as long as the session is high rez. This is only because I try to avoid extra conversion- even D/A to monitor- and only do this if the session was recorded and monitored through an analog console. I haven't been as happy with stuff that was recorded in the box and then, moved over to an analog monitoring/mixing/mastering configuration.
