Mixing with plug-ins in a relatively modern phenomena, a couple of decades ago it wasn’t even an option.
The pendulum seems to have swung from using outboard to plug-ins and then somewhere back towards a middle way of a combination of plug-ins, hardware, or some are using summing mixers, mainly for music.
So take the poll below and of course please feel free to comment, perhaps you mix in the way you do because plug-ins are more affordable? Or perhaps you mix entirely with outboard and an analogue mixer, we would love to know more about your workflow. So take the poll and comment.
