  • Always record your virtual instruments as audio ASAP. There are 2 important reasons for this:
    • You may remove the instrument so that it is no longer using DSP sources.
    • If you take your session to another studio & they don’t have the same plug-ins, you won’t be able to recreate the original sound that you had.
