Post subject:  Everything into Master, or mixer machine?

If this is a stupid question, please forgive my ignorance.

When mixing and exporting, I usually run everything into the Master machine, or the JedShiva Meter then the Master. Lately I've been considering changing over to some sort of mixer, whether it's native Buzz or VST doesn't matter, but my question is, would it really make any significant difference in sound or quality? And if so, which one should I be using??

Thanks.

I tend to start off with everything going to Master if playing around. Once it gets a bit further I use mixIO.

Yeah, Mixio is an excellent Mixing tool with a very nice gui.
It doesnt affect sound if you dont tweak it :)
If you dont have it it's here :

Yep! If u use the very cpu and resource-friendly ld-mixer. LD-Mixer is like a classic mixing console. You can ad tracks, pan the instruments, eq the low-mid-high freqs, so you can finally dig deep into the mix ...
You can also do all this things without the mixer too, but it isn't that comfortable - imo ;)

Thanks for the input guys. I suppose I should re-phrase my question slightly though... Assuming that I already have all the panning, eq, levels, etc. taken care of by other machines, is there much of a difference in the way the Master machine sums all of the audio signals, compared to a mixer?

Awesome! Makes my life much easier. Perhaps in future projects I'll get some mixers involved. Thanks, rock on dudes.

My routing is everything goes into mixio, then I split to channels out for the sgorpi multitrack writer, and then put it through the mastering chain. Sometimes I use 2-3 mixio's per song.

actually i usually just rout everything into a do-nothing. I do all my channel-modifing and such with different VST EQ:s and compressors...

maybe it is not as nice graphically but when the jeskola mixer stopped working in nu-buzz i just figured i didn't like any other of the mixers as much...
