Mixing Hit Songs Completely In The Box - Is It Possible?

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is about the necessity of buying expensive outboard gear. And I get it. People see the biggest artists in the world sit in million dollar studios and working on their music.

If you as an independent artist or ambitious producer or mix engineer want to get to their level, it makes sense to take it as a given that without insanely expensive outboard gear, you just cannot get your music to the same level.
