thanks for all the great questions over the first few days. I am having a lot of fun trying to remember all the details that your questions raise.
So if in doing so I forget to credit the right person/studio/engineer/ gear please understand that its just the ramblings of this engineer whose memory is sometimes suspect. Must be something to do with all that DB exposure. !!!!!!
Keep the questions coming, i will attempt to stay on them as quickly as i can.
