Not as much as I would like. I still feel the most skilled job in engineering is a great tracking engineer. He (or she) can make everyone else look like a genius. He is responsible for the vibe, the sounds, most of the production dicisions, the quality of the recording and on and on. It's a shame that the mixers get all the credit. I find it disturbing that most of my seconds never get to track, and then move on out into the recording world. Some, who really love it, like e-cue, make up for the lack of practice quite quickly, and become great at it. Most still think that mixing is the pinnacle. Sad.
