Can you give us an insight on how your sessions, past and present day work with regards to tempo & timing?

(for example did you used to edit 2" tape to fix late drum hits? And how do you do it now)

Thank you,

This is one of those questions that will require a bit of thought on my part....

I can answer one thing right away - I have never edited 2 inch tape to fix drum hits. I have always had the luxury of working with drummers that don't make late drum hits!!!

Tempo and timing is a big issue. I'll get back to it...
