Mike,

Just curious about bus compression and limiting. Are we to assume that you send the producer and A&R guys away with a listening copy that is 6 to 12 db lower in level than comercially released records and those from other mixers? I don't know of anyone else who is doing that. Isn't that nearly suicidal? Do you print CRANK IT UP on the CD?

Or are you meaning that you do the limiting on the split outputs to your summing box, and in that case, don't you get lots of overs when you sum them on the way to the mixdown machine?

It will be great having you here a while to pick your brain.

Thanks,

Steve
