The 45 minute mix

For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

I suspect that most people who hire Decker have a very good idea of what they're going to get back and probably aren't that bothered how he goes about it.
The individual musicians may be a bit miffed but since most of them are probably professional session musicians they're probably fairly pragmatic about it.

But if it was my stuff, I probably wouldn't be happy with it (certainly drummer wouldn't be!), but I probably wouldn't hire him in the first place.

As a production decision by the producer or artist, yes. Not as a mix decision by the mixer.

This is the hinge point for me as well desmond, although I suspect this guy is regarded as somewhat more than a mixer - he's closer to a producer with technical chops from what I've watched.
