Camera phones are killing photography. I only use homemade pinhole cameras.

I take it one step further: I use memory and story-telling to communicate pictures. I'm something of a traditionalist.

:shock: I don't use stems. I'm not sure why in a basic rock record you want to. I think that separation starts with tracking and I'm not talking about a lack of bleeding. I often have bleeding and it makes things sound bigger and glues the rhythm tracks together. Of course you need a good room for that. I try to envision how each track fits in the whole mix and make sure I leave room for everything to be heard. I might change snare drums to leave room for the vocal etc. When I mix it's about the balance. Eq is very slight and I use lots of parallel compression. I often use multi buss compression as well.

I use stems to manage all sorts of crap in rock.

if there's two different kinds of guitars, and doubles for each one or they're on different tracks, I make stems. in reaper or logic I have a bus(logic) or track(reaper) with say rhythm guitars, regular guitars, drums, vocals, backing vocals.. whatever. depends on the song. but it makes it easy to fuck with them or pan as a whole.

It sounds more like you are talking about using subgroups as a way to mix then mixing to stems.
