An amusing thread on another forum...

(1/1)

Fletcher:
You'd think they'd go to the source instead of spreading regurgitated articles and interpreted myth... http://www.gearslutz.com/board/high-end/596703-michael-brauer-rides-again.html

Bubba--Kron:
I saw that too.  Too damn funny!!  I almost pointed the guy in this direction but decided the amount idiots that would follow is just not worth it.

Fletcher:
You might have fun with it... when I pointed them here [don't forget, there is a registration process here, and a hardcore moderation ethos that precludes assholes from taking over!!] I got banned from the site... but I thought that was half the fun... as always, YMMV

Peace

faganking:
Although the last post is good.

As ever it's always worth remembering that simply analysing the technical aspects of MHB's mix techniques might still not make you a great mixer. Though it's good to be informed, it would be a bit like turning off the sound on a Bill Evan's video and learning his piano style by sight alone. It's never gonna sound like Bill Evan's.

Sound, the emotional response to sound and inherent musicality is what makes a great mixer - however he chooses to use the equipment. Most of the greats don't worry too much about how they use the equipment - they just respond to the sound it makes - and then we all sit around trying to figure out what they did, not what they made.

I hope this makes some sense. Continue to find out about all methods, but remember the most important part.

Above all, enjoy your mixes. If you don't - there's not much chance of anyone else enjoying them :-)

and good luck.

Fletcher:
The short version of that would be... "make it feel great" [which is something I think Mr. Brauer does exceptionally well]... I just thought it was funny that rather than continuing with conjecture, they could have asked the man himself.

Peace.
