    to mix with vsti or wav....
    that is the question... I recently bought "mastering in pro tools" and "mixing pop in pro tools." Even though I don't use pro tools (I use reaper) I have found these 2 videos to be really excellent. Both of them have brought up the same question for me though. Why do all of the tracks in these videos contain wav files? I ask because usually everything except guitars in my compositions are done using vsti's. Is there an advantage to using wav files instead? I know processing power is an issue, but my computer never complains. So my better guess is that it may have something to do with fixing phase issues? Hey, if it's better to use wav's instead - then that's what I'll do. It's just that I hadn't given it much though before. The videos I'm talking about begin with all tracks containing wav files, and make no mention of vsti's being used earlier in the workflow. Thanks!
