Tips & Techniques:Optimum recording Levels - 'Hot' it's not!

I was asked to post this here at GS... It's mostly for the "less seasoned" recordist, but I guess it could some in handy as a reminder to some... " class="inlineimg" />

(it's still in "edit mode" as of 03/2008, so cut me a little slack, eh?)

Amazingly well put! I can say that when I attended AE school (one of the expensive, ginormous marketing campaign schools whose name I will not mention) two very wrong things were pounded into my head on almost a daily basis: 1. NEVER EQ to tape. 2. Record as hot as possible without clipping. It wasn't until a couple years of assisting that I realized what I was doing. It's surprising the number of artists, studio owners, and even engineers that love to record hot.
