Lives for gear

I'm not Mike but would like to add a little something to your post with my point of view, and would love to hear Mike's opinion also.

I think equipment is totally dependant of who runs it. If Mike for example who has worked with SSL's for decades is given a computer, he is probably very well prepared to look for the "record" sound he knows by heart. By saying this I mean, you need to know what you are looking for when you are given a raw working platform like protools. How will you know the plugin came close to an SSL compressor, if you never used one ??? Or the other way around, a beginning mixer will probably make an SSL sound like a mackie.. gear is worthless without a mix engineer prepared to get the best out of it. Just a thought...
