Dave, How'd You get so In the Box

Dave,
When did you first start doing mixes in the box? I think I read a Keyboard mag a few years back saying that you used to do a lot of arranging before getting into mixing. (not sure about that) At what point in the development of DAWs did in occur to you to do a mix fully in the box? Was it a gradual thing? or a full jump into the fire? What issues did you have then? Are they the same issues now that DAWs have improved (processing power, better plugins, etc)?

After thinking about this I think the article that I read was about Rhett Lawrence so take out that part in the question.

Rhett

Well, I have been Rhett's main mixer since '96. I have really learned alot from him. He is genious. I actually started in the SynClavier box. It was one of the first DAWs in the '80s. One of the guys who gave me a start was Paul Davis. In the eighties, Paul wrote and produced in/on the SynClav. "65 Love Affair", "Cool Nights", and "Bop With You Baby" were all top 5 hits, and caused quite a bit of controversy because there was no tape. An engineer by the name of Ed Seay was brilliant on those records.
