Nope don't have to do this because I'm using an Anamod ATS-1. I use this as an external fx inside of Nuendo. It comes up as a plug in and i insert it into whichever track i'm quite sure is finished in arrangement. I then render the track real-time through the plug-in/hardware fx. The ATS-1 is basically a hardware tape simulator. They've got that dead on if you ask me. Quite pricey but definitely worth the dough.
