Yes, they did. But that wasn't surprising. Different sized and different shaped control rooms with different speakers in different places, different numbers and placement of other listeners in the room and, although the binaural mic array stayed reasonably consistent, the mic was always in different places...
I realise what Mike was trying to do, and it was an interesting idea, but even if the mic had always been placed in the ideal engineer's listening position, and the speakers aligned for a perfectly flat response at that position, every room would still have sounded different on the recordings because they were different!
A lot of what Mike and myself did was totally pointless, he'd be the first to admit, but it was fun!
Absolutely! They don't make them like that any more. I always enjoyed talking with him and seeing and hearing his creations -- both electronic and acoustic.
