Edits?

Hi Bruce, you mentioned the advent of tape-machines and new possibility of nonlinear recording and editing.

When working with synced tapemachines you were able to make "work-tapes"...

and you propably also used some copies for editing...

...so how much editing did you (or Quincy? or assistants!? - lol, err specialists) do to those tapes to obtain this quality of recordings and performances?

(to clarify: I'm interested in the bounces and submixes AND the cut and splice work)

Was it a "punchfest" sometimes?


How many work-tapes did for example the sessions for thriller generate?
oh, and I dont want to reduce this question to MJ/Thriller


This event is so much fun! I imagine the whole community hangin on to your lips respectively fingertips ... I'm full of joy checking for new messages and finding new posts and propably another gem or barrel of met from the viking's treasure-chest.

Cheers, Niko

Niko........

You are asking for a lot... Can you narrow it down to one area that I can answer first??

Let's do your questions one at a time. (Because they are all good questions and deserve a good answer...) Then we can go oon and do another question...
As you may have noticed my answers can be a bit lengthy...

Bruce

the more I think about my questions, the harder it gets

... to focus on a first question:

So what do you remember as your first important edit?

In another Thread you said, the drums on Billie Jean were a keeper...
But you certainly had times you had to splice some tape though...

Any "nightmare" stories?

Please share, and thank you sooooooooo much for all your time and patience here at GS!

Cheers, Niko
