1. did you buy that one??
2. if not (or so) do you liked to mix on a specific colsole?
I ask because there is a definitive sound to what you do. It's not just personality, it is a sonic imprint. I have recommended you as mixer on several records. I hope the latest will work out.
THX for all that. I don't recall ever being in a position to buy an API desk. Mucho dinero and mucho TLC. I love them though and if money were no object I'd have one. But things as they are I'm the proud owner of a DD ICON which I think I'm getting good results out of. I'm using the URS API EQ's which are great. A/B'd them against my set of vintage 550a's on vocals and when solo'd I could hear a difference, but couldn't tell you which was 'better', just different. In the track though I couldn't hear the difference at all. So I'm a happy clam. Still trying to figure out what I like to do in this new format. I won't say it's easy. Just experiment, experiment........
