Ah. So now he's 'semi-tame'. Right. (It must be true - I read it - in print - in SOS -
that makes it official.)
And why 'semi-tame'? Not as tractable as before? I
can almost hear the exchange:
Semi-tame mix engineer: If I have to listen to
one more crap mix from one more wannabe, I'm taking my Avantone Mixcube and going
somewhere you won't hear from me for a while.
SOS: Yeah, but they're buying
STME: Look, if you want it done, *you* do it. My ears hurt.
SOS: Alright, alright. I'll do it. Maybe they'll buy my book too.
His book is good, btw. One thing I learned from it is that I shouldn't entertain
the conceit that it might be a good idea to send one of my mixes in for a rescue.
To claim that a guitarist can "play only in a few keys" it's like saying that a singer can sing only into cylindrical microphones. - CS70
