Not stupid but funny...
Had this week a new customer, a rookie with his first song, who wanted a mixdown. He wanted to be there and watch. I told him that's ok, but that I would like work without being disturbed all the time. You can already guess what's coming up...
So I roughly set up a mix after listening and labeling all tracks. There were 5 (!!!) layers for the main lead. I asked him which one "carries" the main character.
Him: layer/track 4
Me: ok (making it a little louder)
Him: layer 3 louder
Him: layer 1 too
Me: ok but layer 4 will be then too low in volume
Him: anyway layer 1 must be louder
Him: now layer 2 is too low
Him: now the whole lead sound is way too loud
Me: oh no... strange (smiling at him)
Him: Ok I let you do your work
