Default Question for you guys that still use real tape

For those of you who are still using real, analog tape in your studios, at some part of the recording process...

Are you still cutting the tape with a razor blade and pasting it back together like in the olden days? Or are you just using it as an initial recording medium and them playing that back into Protools? Or alternatively, summing to tape at the end of the process?

I know there's a few of you out there still doing it, just wondering what your workflow is and how it fits into the digital workflow.

Default Re: Question for you guys that still use real tape

Before I messed up my Tascam TSR-8 a while back while trying to replace the capstan drive belt, I would sync it to ProTools using a PPS-2 Synchronizer. I liked to record my drum kit to analog tape, and then dump it into ProTools for editing and mixing.
