Would you guys know if its considered professional to use quantizing to help with timing on recordings? Its incredibly useful and I can see professionals using it, but it feels almost like cheating to get timing right instead of relying on good musicianship. What do you guys think?
#2
Professionals definitely use it, it's used a lot in modern metal .etc on drums especially. It definitely does feel like cheating but it's either that or you put out a mix that's sub par.
#3
Definitely standard procedure. As an engineer your job is to get the best possible sound on a recording, regardless of whether the band can replicate that in a live situation or not (that's on them).

Basically, if its a term thrown around here or used in a tutorial, its most likely done by pros
