Techniques applied OTB ...

Long time lurker. First time poster. Hello!

Due to health reason (severe eye issues), I need to greatly minimize the time I spend on a DAW. I produce full time and must drastically change my work flow to continue doing so. While I started on consoles and tape machines, it has been awhile since I've done so and have picked up many new techniques (habits).

I'm starting this thread in hopes that I can solve issues on transferring from a DAW to a console/multi-track setup. While I have come up with solutions to many of the tasks I perform on a DAW (from editing to automation), there are others that still plague me!

MIX LEVELS FEEDING THE STEREO BUS. Currently, I use both plugins and outboard. I am cautious about how hard I hit certain inputs, make up the gain, etc. with my outboard. After completing a mix ITB using hardware inserts, I can adjust the level I'm sending to the stereo bus via grouping all the faders. For you console mixers, how do you achieve hitting the stereo bus in the sweet spot without manually trying to recreate the balance by bringing each fader down?

If anybody else has jumped ship from their DAW, feel free to share some new techniques you've learned in the new domain. Thanks!
