Thanks for creating this wonderful site John.
It's great to hear comments from other mix engineers, but it would be interesting to know what monitors are being used by them to make their judgments, and who their main influence is. This could be included as part of each users profile.
Mine would read:
Monitors: Genelec 1031. Yamaha NS10M with Bryston 2b amp.
Favorite mix engineer: Andy Wallace.
Of course some people will say they've got Barefoots when they're really using a Tandy beat box....but they'll soon get found out!
If you're really serious about a career as a mixing engineer then you NEED to invest in great monitors. Even if it means taking an extra job at a bar or washing dishes in a kitchen to make an extra buck. Just think how you'd feel if your dentist pulled out a rusty old hammer and chisel to perform dental surgery!
Last thing! Matt68 where are you?
