    This is old, but I haven't seen it in a while and it's awesome.

    Awesome. and yet nothing about brick-walling a mix and the volume wars?

    My first insight into audio professionals' lives was Slipperman's infamous epic diatribe on recording heavy guitars. This is concordant.

    This takes me back to working in the audio department of THE music store. There was such a polarizing effect when someone mentioned whether they were a producer or introduced themselves as a "pruh-doo-sss-uh" It was almost like a rodeo in the fact that you could see them struggle to make it a full 8 seconds before mentioning all the phat beatz they have.
