Excerpts from Roberto Suárez Soto's message of 2011-07-07 09:58:49 +0200:
Also consider the psychological effect. Recording clean allows for
endless tinkering. With effects on the track your possibilities are
limited, re-recording is additional effort, so you likely focus more on
getting good sound first, get that down and do little afterwards.
If you tend to tweak endlessly it's probably better to use hardware :)
