Console vs. direct to tape recording
« on: May 08, 2017, 07:40:41 PM »
 I was wondering how others handle recording through the ssl console. I have been going through external preamps and then returning those signals through the channels and then to tape. Are there any people out there who bypass the console and go straight to tape? If so, what are the reasons for this? Noise floor? Thanks

I will bypass the console a lot of times when using external pres. I used Pro Tools HD and I just bring up the playback channels on the desk.
