question about recording so maybe it doesn't fit here but it's mix related too.

When recording (with a mic), there sometimes is a low cut switch on the mic. I can see it's handyness but I never use it because if the low is cut at the mic, it never makes it to the track (as intended). So if you wanted the lows later in mixing, it's not there. So, I don't use the low cut, I high pass on the track as needed.
When I worked on analog, it was important to not let the mud through so we cut it at the mic, but I'm not sure if this is true in a digital environment.

Please school my ignorant ass.
