Mixing Back Into ProTools After Hardware Inserts

Hello,
When Recording To Disc in PT, if you go out to some hardware (comp/EQ) before recording a mix back into PT, do you like to use different converters than the PT 192 interface? Or just use the Digi 192 to record the mix?
Thanks

Well, not just to record the 2mix but to do everything from tracking to mixing to using outboard gear as inserts, etc., I use two Lynx Aurora16's with the LT-HD card. No Digi 192 in my studio.

192's are fine and have been used on countless albums and films.

In a mix situation you have much much much bigger fish to fry than whether or not the 192 is detrimental to your mix.

True; just hoping to see what some preferences are with hardware then RTD.
I heard a very good engineer say he wouldn't use his 192 to get back in the box.
Thanks

I'll use 192's converters if they're clocked to an Apogee clock. Yes they sound ok, but others sound better. I've noticed a bit of low end augmentation with my Apogees as they go in the box. I'm going to do a bunch of sample tests to see if its going in that does it, or if coming out of the box does it as well. And either way, what is the effect of going in and out of the box say... 100 times? Where does the time go? Mostly on this damn forum...

Even very good engineers sometimes get fooled by their own brains though.

Not to say an external converter the quality of a lavry won't make some difference...but there's plenty of other things to spend your money on that will improve things more.
