Default Can I throw my DAW out?

Can I sequence it all in N3, then record those sequences to my multitrack (the new one from Bias Peak), add the live stuff, (vocals, guitar, etc), FX, mix, and master thus bypassing LOGIC or LIVE or REAPER or other DAW?

What would I lose? I never use the FX or VSTs that are in the DAW. I can mix and master on my multitrack recorder.

Can I throw my DAW out?

I'm working out my own way of Numerology for making music. I don't even use the Daw for mix down.. It's a very diffirent way to make music. I like it very much, but perhaps as it's early days it's not super productive. But the music I produce with it will be unique, and I can't see how I could how gotten to the same place with any other technology..

Give it try.. You can check my many posts on what I've come up with for set up.. Though it's changes almost constantly as I try and juggle the limitations of my CPU..

That's one area where mixing out to a DAW might be a good solution, when you arrangements get too large for numerology..

Regards

Wade

Default Wade!

Thanks for replying.
I'm just trying to simplify my setup. The DAW is supposed to make life simple, but why did I make much more music in the old days? I just don't see whey I can't sequence in N, then record onto track, FX, mix, and master. If things got big I could just bounce/record them onto track and go from there . . . I think. I like working in modules, but in the end it needs to go linear to have the songs in a timeline. Can I work linearly in N?
Thanks My Friend.

There is a Timeline, which you can use to place your presets per stack, then you drag the mouse to set the length of bars..

I personally don't use the Timeline I've setup things with a Master Control stack that makes all stacks change there presets chronologically through the arrangement.. I get a overview of long arrangements then I can jump into editing on whatever stack I need to. It's a very strange experience to work this way like always adjusting small elements to get things to line up, more like plotting the course of satellites than driving a car..

Default I think . . .

If I break away from a linear DAW I will be forced to focus on the immediate sound . . . sonic effect and stop thinking ABABCAB . . . at least for the time being. :-).

I need both Numerology and a DAW. Numerology is *the instrument* while the DAW is *the recorder* and finalizer. In a DAW you can also do a lot of sweetening to the sound by applying dynamic processing by side-chain techniques etc. In my book DAW work is a boring handcraft while Numerology is exciting creativity.
