Since the guy is still looking at this good forum, I'm wondering why he even posts or come here to read when he "knows" he wont get any answer to his question and will get the "same" BS as there is usually.... Of course the fact that he is obnoxious is not the cause.. nooo nooo. it's always other peoples fault ain't it?

NO idea if the guy needs signing lessons. The mic of the camera was saturating so much that you could barely make a male voice over a cat being squeezed into a compactor.

What's being creative in using the same technique 3000 other people uses that are in the top charts? Nothing, it's just copying. There is so much AT out there today that not using it, is being original and creative!

P.S the person who made AT popular, but for the wrong reasons, wasn't timberland.. but Cher, and with her, even AT raised the white flags.

Pfft, to those who took the time to answer him kudos.

You'll have latency issues in HD if you use RTAS plugins.

I like to record the plugins sound just as I was used to do with analog consoles. To do that I create Aux tracks of the channels where I put the plug ins and use a bus to send it to the recording track. So all I do with the plugins in the aux gets recorded and I'm able to keep secret my "secret" bass drum or snare eq and compression. ;-D

Also very useful when recording guitars with Eleven.

And you'll have a lighter session when it's mixing time since you will be able to just "disable" the aux channels without loosing the settings used in the record session.

The best

I thought you answered exactly what needed to be answered. Actually, your answer helped me tremendously .. thank you Max! THANK YOU!
I actually stumbled into the AUX send trick by just playing around with options... I was just trying to accomplish being able to hear reverb while recording, and that's how I accomplished it, by creating sends to AUX tracks, and send the AUX track output (or send) to the headphones mix... pretty cool stuff!.. I never thought of recording the output of the AUX track itself. That's AWESOME! I'll give it a try!
