He advised I try both and see what I thought. I totally chose summing 8 channels of bad converters thru a decent desk then doing it all in PTle.
Ssshhh! He's just kidding around folks, pay no attention. Go about your normal business of dumping large frame consoles for next to nothing, getting rid of all that archaic 48k outboard, you know, upgrading.
Mathematic addition of digital signals sounds every bit as good as padding individual analog inputs, wiring them in parallel, and amplifying them again. No reason to listen and compare, it's pretty much the exact same thing. Move along, nothing to see here...
