    FL Studio 12 – “Mix in buffer switch” issue

    Hard-drive recording (DAW) vs external hardware (ADAT)?

    I'm curious to know if tape or HD recorders are still used professionally? I'm thinking ADAT, HDR or other multitrackers. Or is everything fully done on hard-drives, including storyboarding, sketches, etc. I'm considering to bypass software for the composing portion, as hardware seems faster...
