Re: Mixing good ol' rock 'n roll
#4 is an important one for me.
My old band recorded a 4-minute song. Then had a producer spend SIXTEEN HOURS editing every note of every instrument. The drums and bass were perfectly locked beforehand, with a great feel. The producer removed every ounce of humanity from the track, and was paid to do it!
15 years later, I still can't listen to that track. And would never work with that guy again.
