This engineer speaks about first using digital and loving the advantages of being able to edit and such but when working on certain projects he prefers the analog sound, though it can be replicated. He uses the analogy I don't throw away an old pair of shoes because I got a new pair.

This scoop it is how they contrast between analog and digital and and how different its use and more efficient one is then another one is .

Digital vs. analog audio: Which sounds better?

Even among audiophiles there's no consensus as to whether analog or digital sounds better. Read this article by Steve Guttenberg on CNET News.

Jose Pedro Alegria's insight:

This article made me realize that its all about personal preference. Digital and analog both sound good. It's up to you, how you want your music to sound. I prefer analog but I'd have to acquire a big budget.

Personal preference is the biggest part of this battle. I feel as though they are both just as good it just depends on the mood of the music. A love song would sound better recorded in analog while a club hit would sond better digital.

He writes how one might not be better than the other, it just depends on the person's preference. Even though he does like analog consoles, he is not biased. 
The article could have gotten more in depth about both consoles to compare/contrast them.

My personal opinion of this article is positive. I agree that analog has a warmer sound but digital recording can simplify so many things, and it also costs a lot less.

I chose this article because it was from a student's point of view about the past and present formats of Recording.

This shows how they use to record and how some people can still use this analog recorder that some people use.

Jose Pedro Alegria's insight:

Opinion

I believe that using Digital recording without cheating is perfectly fine. I say "cheating" meaning without copy and paste or pressing repeat a lot. Digital recordings at a studio, with a good engineer can work well.
