Most of the time, even for the level of crazy layering (or what sounds like it to the average bear) - I honestly have very, very low track counts. I don't even need to use the 'next tracks' forward on the DAW control surface much when mixing.

Today was not one of those days, however.

Two songs, one with two discrete instruments/passes and 28 stereo and non-stereo tracks - the other with three discrete monsters and 36 stereo/non-stereo tracks.

Ah, how we are blessed with modern technology for recording and mixing - without automation and the ability to subgroup without destructive edits....I'd be lost!

And no more sliced-n-diced thumbs splicing tape on the block with a razor blade.

Gotta love technology!

I still tee-hee with delight when sliding my virtual mixer in Pro Tools left to right and seeing all the tracks, busses and master fader. Don't like that placement visually? Click/drag. This is a long way from hooking up 2 cassette recorders and bouncing in a live track.

A recent remix: 12 stereo tracks, 6 mono tracks, 7 busses, 1 master fader, 46 inserts (plugins, VI's).

I don't miss splicing tape, that much is for sure!

And yea, the fader movement and silliness never does get old.

I'll admit to watching a playback as much as listening, just because the dance of nine mechanical monsters and a bank of lights...is glorious!

It’s amazing what relatively little money gets you these days.
