Following on from something that was alluded to earlier in this thread - one of my considerations would be for whom the recording in question is intended. I mean, if one is making a recording for personal amusement where time and money is no object and the finished product will be pressed onto a vinyl LP and played exclusively to me and my band mates on a high-end record player through big floor-standing speakers then yeah - old-school all the way.
On the other hand if you have a limited budget and anticipate the majority of your audience listening to your recordings through tiny ear-bud headphones connected to an mp3 player then time and money spent on analogue mics, pre-amps, desks, tape reorders, and the rest of it would seem a little superfluous wouldn't it?
