This course addresses the increasingly hybrid nature of recording and mixing practices in music production. Through contrasts and comparisons, the course explores the impact on modern record-making of MIDI, music sequencing, sampling, extended frequency responses, file modification tools, and their effect on analog components in record-making. The course highlights why many current production teams seek the best of both worlds as they move forward in the creative process, beginning with digital sources, augmenting with analog components, editing on a workstation or laptop, moving to a large format console and ending up with a digital file, exploiting the DAW's functionality as a tape machine in the analog domain and its expanded creative capabilities in the digital domain.
