Default Re: How are analog formats doing?

I have noticed vinyl has made a big come back in recent years.

But at the same time, many newer vinyl releases were still recorded to digital, so I'm not sure what the point is.

The line between digital and analog is so blurred now, I'm not sure it makes a huge difference.

I once spoke with the bass player for a major band, and he was telling me how they run the signal though the tape machine, but right back out into Protools. I think I've read a few other bands that have tried similar things.

You can buy a multitude of plug ins for your DAW that will "simulate" analog sound.

But as pointed pointed out, digital recording is so much more advanced now than it was when it came out, that criticism people had the of early digital sound is rather moot by todays's standards.
