I don't own a china cymbal for the same reason I don't own a hand gun....

Let's post horror stories from a client that compares a "console mix" from a "mastered mix". I've had a few that listen in their car and want it to sound as loud as......... But mixing analog as I do, you can only make copies so hot..........

I'm honored and humbled to be working among the folks represented here. Seriously, to wake up every day and make music for a living is one of God's greatest gifts!

*This was originally written to be a response to a forum question, but after I posted it I realized that I really hadn't responded to the question. I was off in my own world, as usual. So I took it down, and I'm posting it as a blog.
