To paraphrase the above:

No artist that means anything these days mixes in Pro Tools. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

So far we got:

LFO
Mandy Moore
98 Degrees
Jessica Simpson
Ricky Martin
Enrique Iglesias
Toto
Macy Gray (tone deaf!!)
Melanie C.
Emma Bunton
Creed (see below)
The Strokes

And, you mean to tell me that people STILL question the sterility of Pro Tools mixing capabilities? How can they with such stellar artists! [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

I think we shouldn't be all that categorical :

I would say : If you trust the mixer, let HIM choose the right mixing tool :

- Don't take an "Neve/SSL man" and force him into using PT.
- Don't take a Pro Tools man and put him in front of an Neve/SSL, thinking the mix will sound better just because you are using top end stuff

Mixing in Pro Tools can yield great results, IF and only IF, you master the details of the platform, the hardware issues (converters, clocks, bit depth, Protools mixer plugin etc) and the recording, and most important, you have the right plugins for the job AND the DSP to drive them !
In an Neve / SSL you have one great EQ, one pretty good gate /comp per channel, and often channels galore. Most current pop/rock/r&b mixes end up with eq and dynamics active on almost all channels. So the obvious question is : is your PT rig powerful enough to do that ?
If not, you need to print eq and dynamics and that makes things more complicated since tweaking these till the last minute is often necessary.
Using outboard AES/EBU reverbs like lexicon PCM91 can help a lot to regain horsepower for more basic plugins.
Personally, coming from a very analog background (12 years with an vintage neve console + 2", 10 more on SSL etc.), it took me two years getting it absolutly right with protools but I can now say that I have never been as satisfied as I am now.
But it took the combination of the Hi-res 24 bit opimized mixer plugin, McDsp, Sony, Waves etc plugins and an apogee AD8000 for recording to get there. The problem with the Hi-res mixer is that if you use a lot of plugs, then it will eat a LOT more DSP, but that is the price to pay for great sound. If you want to make some very serious mixing on a Mix system, prepare yourself to pack your system with mix farms ! (HD will give you a break, as long as you don't go for 88 or 96 khz !)

But all this does not stop me from liking music mixed 100% on SSL .

Robotnik,

According to digi rep at the last demo...you can add Creed to that list. I think their 1st album was all PT.

Robotnik,
I appreciate your humor but Toto has been a mix benchmark for many years. You may not like their music but you can't argue with their sound.

Oh no here we go again, just because Mr Big producer uses and SSL and edits with protools etc but doesnt mix with protools doesnt mean protools isnt good to be used standalone. These same guys wont embrace any new technology for the sake of it anyway. Its the case of if it aint broke dont fixit. Most of us start from its damn broke so fix it.
