Then I got a HiFi Video as a master tracker that at least sounded somewhat like what I've just heard in the mix. I also got a tape deck for duplication in an era when MP3 wasn't even born haha!
sorry, back to the monitors
But tell this to the kids these days, they'd never believe you
Back in my day .......... before there was light ............ we mixed using a shard of obsidian lava as a lathe, into a swirling quagmire of primordial, primitive, single-cell hammond-organisms drifting along on the boiling-hot tide driven by poisonous effluvia from ocean floor volcanos.
But you're right ..... don't even try to tell kids these days about how it was back then ...... they don't believe in nothing! Heck ..... they don't even know what music is anyway. At least WE know what music sounds like! These young, whipper-snappers today only know MPthis ... and iThat ......... they ain't never even heard REAL music ................ only ones and zeroes! Blah! Phoooooey!
